WHAT IS VISIBLE COMMERCE?

At Basware, we believe that a world of transparent exchange of money, goods, and services, enabled by the ready availability of data, empowers people to make more effective and more ethical business decisions. This is what we call Visible Commerce.

USING TRANSPARENCY TO ENHANCE REPUTATION AND MANAGE RISK

The movement toward transparency is being driven by increasing customer concerns about the ethics of business and by the competitive advantages that transparency can bring to an organisation.

Those companies that have invested in more visible finance and procurement see greater transparency throughout the rest of the organisation, and with it greater employee engagement, improved reputation and better decision making, as well as greater cost savings and revenue growth, according to a survey of 779 global executives conducted by Harvard Business Review Analytic Services.
