Collaborative Cash Flow Optimization delivers compelling returns on short-term cash while simultaneously addressing the cash flow need of the supply chain.
Pollenware (C2FO) turns Accounts Payable liabilities into income-generating assets through collaborative market clearing events in which Buyer-Clients designate pools of cash for early payment and Supplier-Clients bid discretely, each according to their own need for a share of that cash by offering various and unique offers.
