Webinar Recording

Intelligently Automating the Manual Invoice-to-Pay Process

Date: Thursday, September 22, 2016
Time: 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
Many accounts payable operations remain stubbornly manual -- impacting operational quality, increasing compliance and fraud risk, and depleting morale with what amounts to soul-sucking bookkeeping chores. Finance leaders need to help drive the strategic direction of their enterprises by using their talent to help make better decisions, not dwell in the vagaries of paying their suppliers.

Industry expert Mary Schaeffer will describe a best practice invoice-to-pay methodology that relies largely on automation. She’ll show how the different components can be automated and then show how not automating can actually hurt an organization. She'll also review results from a recent survey of 200 finance professionals on their impression and efforts around automation. Finally, she’ll suggest an ROI approach senior management can use to execute an invoice-to-pay automation project and gain buy-in at all levels.
After attending this event you will be able to:
Understand how the invoice-to-pay process can rely largely on automation
Identify how the different components can be automated
Recognize how not automating can actually hurt an organization
Understand the current state of accounts payable operations based on financial executive research
Identify the amount of time spent managing AP and supplier payments, problem areas, and AP automation adoption levels
