Thermax, a leading energy and environment solutions provider in India, faced challenges in optimizing its treasury returns, reducing procurement costs, and automating its complex payment process. Traditional vendor bill discounting programs through banks were cumbersome, involving stringent documentation, fixed interest rates, and limited flexibility. Existing programs, including Hundi programs and bank-based financing, had low adoption rates among vendors, and the company sought a more efficient solution.
