BBL - Interface Financial Group: Digital Supply Chain Finance Beyond Blockchain

New significant challenges faced by Early Payment solutions, including low suppliers' adoption, interoperability, accounting treatment issues, post-confirmation dilution and others could be only partially resolved by diversified ledger technology (DLT).
The presentation will focus on the newest generation of Digital Supply Chain Finance ("DSCF"), created as an extension of Dynamic Discounting. This service includes full digital underwriting, compliance and a unified customer experience for all early payment services including Dynamic Discounting, DSCF, and Digital Invoice Finance (off-platform funding). It has been built from the ground up to ensure a frictionless experience for Buyer and Supplier, and to sidestep the challenges faced by older approaches to early payment.
