Strengthen Your Supply Chain without lifting a finger.

AP Express Working Capital enables your suppliers to be easily paid upon invoice approval with optional, low-cost funding from our funding partners.

Better for you

Leverage your existing AP Express integration to generate a data access fee that offsets your annual subscription

Provide a 100% optional, responsible and cost-effective way for suppliers to get faster payments

Strengthen the resiliency of your supply chain along with supplier relationships

No process changes, no risk, no financial guarantees, and no commitments

Supports the goals of:

Procurement: boost Corporate Social Responsibility by providing suppliers an optional , low-cost way to Get Paid Early if (and when) they need it

Finance: no process changes or costs (no financial guarantee required) and can be complementary to any other programs you may be running

Suppliers: registration is fast, easy, free, and available to your entire supplier base. Usage is 100% optional and does not force suppliers into any lengthy contract or commitment to accept early payment on an on-going basis

How it Works

Uses existing integration

The software is already included in your AP Express ERP integration so requires no cost or IT lift

A simple click

Suppliers simply click a “Pay Me Early” button in the Nivo1 Portal to complete a fast, click-through signup, then we notify you of the supplier’s updated bank details

No process changes

Suppliers continue to submit invoices following normal protocol and you continue to process them in AP Express, just as before

Suppliers get paid early

Suppliers then optionally select approved invoices for early payment and receive the full invoice amount less a small discount of 1-2%

You pay as normal

Once the invoice has matured, you simply pay the invoice as you normally would
