What CFOs are Missing in Their Approach to Accounts Payable

Date: Friday, September 21, 2018
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
Let’s face it. The tasks of Accounts Payable Operations are monotonous. Mainly because in many companies, they are done manually. And the AP teams often are not recognized for their efforts. After all, what is so hard about getting a check out the door?

On the other hand, AP can also represent tremendous opportunities to help companies not only operate more efficiently but to also reduce risks of human error and fraud while improving the management of cash flow. Improving vendor, and customer, relationships is an added bonus.

In this webcast, discover how CFOs at mid-size companies can generate key benefits by elevating Accounts Payable activities to more strategic levels.

Here are just some of the topics that will be covered:
  • The consistent application of compliance and other business rules.
  • More efficient management of Exception Invoices.
  • Visibility to all Vendor Invoices received regardless of status.
  • Adding true value to the time of the AP Resources.
  • Growth of the business and the impact to the size of the Accounts Payable team
Implementing an Accounts Payable Workflow solution can effectively address these topics and so much more.
After attending this event you will be able to:
Discover specific, actionable strategies to improve the efficiency of the AP Processes within your organization.
Understand the value of implementing an end-to-end AP methodology driven by automation.
Learn how automating AP can eliminate fraud by improving controls and increasing visibility.
