HighRadius – Enabling companies to automate accounts receivable and treasury processes using artificial intelligence


The new fintech infrastructure companies have made it possible for SaaS businesses to add financial services alongside their core software product. By adding fintech, SaaS businesses can increase revenue per customer and open up new SaaS markets that previously may not have been accessible due to a smaller software market or inefficient customer acquisition. This wave is happening first in vertical markets (meaning the market around a specific industry, such as construction or fitness). Vertical software markets tend to have winner-take-most dynamics. The vertical SaaS business that can best serve a specific industry's needs often becomes the dominant vertical solution and can sell both software and financial solutions to their core customer base.

HighRadius is a Fintech enterprise Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) company that leverages Artificial Intelligence-based Autonomous Systems to help companies automate Accounts Receivable and Treasury processes. The Integrated Receivables platform reduces cycle times in your order-to-cash process by automating receivables and payments processes across credit, electronic billing and payment processing, cash application, deductions, and collections. The company's products provide value to a wide range of customers. They are especially relevant to industries like consumer products, manufacturing, distribution, energy, and others that sell products or provide services to other businesses.
