The Growth of B2B Sector in Indonesia is as Significant as its Challenges

The growth of the B2B payments market in Indonesia is driven by several factors, including the increasing adoption of digital payment solutions, government initiatives to promote digital transactions, and the growth of e-commerce and other digital business models. As a result, there are likely to be many opportunities for companies operating in the B2B payments space to expand their offerings and capture a share of this growing market.
However, This growth is proportional to its challenges.
B2B payment often involves invoices. Depending on the industry, B2B businesses may process up to 1,000 invoices per month. However, many B2B businesses in Indonesia still rely on manual processes for invoice reconciliation. Here are some of the pain points /challenges B2B business face related to the payments/invoices:

- Manual invoices take more time to process, causing delay in billing the customers, which results in delayed payments and cashflow crunches
