Cleo introduced CIC PAVE (for Procurement Automation and Vendor Enablement), a strategic add-on that standardizes and centralizes supplier interactions via an online portal, helping manufacturers extend their supply chain digitalization efforts to suppliers and vendors who are not EDI-capable or API-ready.
“Any manufacturer still relying on manual processes like phone, fax or email to manage orders, acknowledgements, shipments or invoicing with its suppliers is putting its business at risk,” says Cleo CEO Mahesh Rajasekharan. “CIC PAVE immediately opens these antiquated supply chains to the digital world by automatically enabling EDI with virtually any ecosystem partner, creating the exact kind of seamless, digital integrations manufacturers need to remain competitive in today’s era of rapid digital transformation.”
• CIC PAVE will help eliminate manual interactions with a manufacturer’s ecosystem of suppliers; produce standardized EDI transactions that enable automated integration into ERPs; and empower suppliers to get “EDI-capable” without actually needing EDI expertise or investments.
• CIC PAVE eliminates manual document exchange and optimizes order management by digitally enabling an organization’s supplier ecosystem.
“Cleo is leading the way when it comes to B2B integration innovation,” Rajasekharan adds. “With CIC PAVE, we are advancing the modernization efforts of manufacturers by facilitating frictionless interactions with their non-EDI suppliers and vendors. Prioritizing automation is now more important than ever, and Cleo is making it easier than it’s ever been before.”
