The New Era of Business Transactions

All companies are buying and selling, exchanging everything from raw materials to services to finished goods. Collectively, these companies form a massive, globe-spanning supply chain.

That supply chain is undergoing a digital transformation — and that transformation is ushering in a new era of business transactions.

Accounts Receivable Optimization: Shared Ledger

In this new era, Globys believes:

  1. All parties will want a single source of the truth for business transactions.
  2. People will log into and work in one application, not multiple applications.
  3. Validation of fulfillment, billing, and payments will be automated, not manual.
  4. Smarter collections will better leverage credit instruments to remove cash-flow risks.

Globys has a vision for this new era, using technology that includes shared ledgers, smart contracts, integration, and machine learning.

Come join us.

Our story.

Globys was founded in 2008 to accelerate invoice-to-cash for B2B suppliers. We knew that suppliers wanted B2B transactions to be transparent and efficient, so we created the Globys Suite—an end-to-end application for customers to access, analyze, and pay complex invoices starting with telecommunications.

Today, Globys has hundreds of thousands of companies processing invoices on our platform. We serve suppliers around the world. We are focused squarely on being a true partner to suppliers, making it easy and fast for them to collect cash.
