Best Practices in Invoice-to-Pay (and Accounts Payable) Automation

Date: Wednesday, March 9, 2016
Time: 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST
Technology and automation are taking the business world by storm, improving efficiency and dramatically reducing costs. The invoice-to-pay function is no exception. Tomorrow’s invoice processing function will look nothing like the one you are accustomed to.

Join us as industry expert Mary Schaeffer takes us through a fast-paced discussion of best practices related to the invoice-to-pay process and how automation plays a key role. Discussion will include better management of payables, improving working capital, and more efficient processes.

You will also have the opportunity to experience an AP automation platform in action which allows visualization of how these improvements can work in your organization.
After attending this event you will be able to:
Recognize the “other” benefits organizations realize when they automate their invoice-to-pay process
Identify some likely objections from management along with ways to respond
Understand how to sell an invoice-to-pay automation project to upper management
