Webinar Recording

Future-Proofing Accounts Payable

Date: Thursday, August 3, 2017
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
Will your current accounts payable and supplier payment processes keep up and scale with your company as it grows, expands globally, and becomes more complex?

Implementing an end-to-end AP methodology can help you eliminate low-value manually intensive tasks that are prone to human error. Look for new best practices and technologies that can address each of the core workflows within AP; from onboarding and managing suppliers to invoice processing to executing payments.

Prepare your financial operations proactively for supplier growth, globalization of your supply chain, increased tax, regulatory, audit, and financial control scrutiny, merger and/or acquisitions, multi-entity organizational structures, and other business changes. If using manual AP labor, even a small change in AP volume could have an overwhelming impact on your existing operation that may take months to recover from.

This webinar will cover the latest AP best practices and technologies available to modernize the entire AP operation.
During this webinar, we will:
Explore how automating Accounts Payable processes can help reduce risks in the areas of tax, anti-money laundering and other areas of compliance.
Discover how automation, with its checks and balances, can be leveraged to help scale a fast-growing business efficiently.
Recognize the costs, other than labor, of operating a manual shop.
