ALISO VIEJO, Calif., May 27, 2020 – Transcepta, the leading cloud-based Procure-To-Pay platform, today shared data from the platform that highlights an increase in economic activity throughout the United States.
Since April, economic activity has slowed significantly due to COVID-19, reaching a low point on April 15th. However the dataset, which is purposely limited to US-based companies, but also includes the entire Transcepta Supplier Network global footprint, shows a rebound that continues to climb. On May 12th, the number of electronic invoices being processed on the Transcepta Platform shows a trajectory toward pre-COVID levels, signaling a beginning of a return to normal.
Transcepta Economic Activity Index
“The Transcepta Platform represents tens of millions of transactions in just about every industry,” said Ray Parsons, CEO of Transcepta. “By tracking E-Invoice volume, combined with other economic indicators such as late payments, and the dollar value of corporate spend, we are able to see that businesses are starting to rebound, and that overall economic activity is increasing.”
The stream of data that Transcepta collects from the Transcepta Platform is now being used to build an index that the team has dubbed the Transcepta Economic Activity Index, or the Transcepta EAI. The Transcepta EAI uses machine-learning to crunch large amounts of supplier data, and regression analysis to highlight economic patterns that can help shine a light on important trends in the market.
“Over the coming months, we will continue to track supplier and business activity across the country,” continued Parsons, “Our hope is to uncover other learnings that we can proactively share with the community.”
