The vision is to make procurement easy, painless, and transparent. Skyscend is on a mission to provide procurement transparency, efficiency, and obsessive customer experience through the implementation of cutting-edge technologies such as AI, blockchain and mobile-first approach.  

Alpharetta, Georgia, February 22, 2021, Skyscend Pay is a central portal with comprehensive access to features, analytics, and data. It consolidates data from disparate sources into a single, easy-to-use interface. View and manage invoices, communicate with suppliers or clients, and view curated analytics – all without switching a tab.

Guiding Corporate Principles: 

  • Integrity – Integrity is core to running this business. The Team holds itself to high standards when it comes to treating our customers, employees, and vendors-partners with clear, transparent, and honest interactions.
  • Customer Focused – Skyscend Pay strives to create a frictionless, easy, and an impressionable experience for the customers.
  • Agility – Agility and Speed are the keys to success. This means striving to get the best product in the most efficient way into the hands of the customers.

Existing Features & Benefits of Skyscend Pay:

  • Quick, easy to use invoice uploads: Rather than relying on slow, inefficient manual data entry or cumbersome, fragile rule-based OCR, Skyscend Pay employs state-of-the-art AI to intelligently import invoices. The AI contextually parses invoices, so even completely novel formats can be understood.
  • Sane error correction and reconciliation: Errors are all too common when dealing with invoices. Oftentimes, dealing with errors necessitates time consuming discussions between buyers and suppliers. Even simple errors often result in lengthy email threads to ensure there are no misunderstandings between each party. Skyscend Pay’s Supplier Side Error Correction obviates this process.
  • Out-of-the-box fully integrated with popular ERPs and Procurement Networks: It is difficult to find a software solution that meets one’s needs, but often even more difficult to get that solution to play nice with the rest of the software stack.
  • Fully customizable to address unique requirements: Skyscend Pay can adapt to better fulfill any organization’s needs. For example, configure whether invoice validation is done by the Supplier or the Buyer’s AP department or use web-hooks to trigger custom workflows on events.
  • Central Portal: With comprehensive access to features, analytics, and data: Skyscend Pay consolidates data from disparate sources into a single, easy-to-use interface. View and manage invoices, communicate with suppliers or clients, and view curated analytics – all without switching a tab.
  • Dynamic Discounting: This helps suppliers get the capital they need quickly while providing much-appreciated savings to buyers. While the specific terms are fully user-configurable, Dynamic Discounts could be utilized to apply 1% discounts for a Net 45 pay term, 2% for Net 30, or 3% for immediate payment.

The roadmap ahead for the company:

  • Skyscend Pay (SKYP): Improve and extend our features in invoice management space.
  • Skyscend global e-invoicing platform (SGEP): Extend our visibility in global procurement space thru global e-invoicing solution.
  • Skyscend Public Network (SPN): Create a public network for business to collaborate.
  • Skyscend Contract (SC): Enable businesses to get into contract (scan, redline through centralized platform powered by block-chain) and further extending the collaboration through video conferencing within the app.
