    Event Synopsis:

    Despite its huge effect on a business' cash flow, there are still many businesses that don’t give much attention to the accounts payable (AP) department. A number of potentials can be lost when a company fails to capitalize on its payment agreements with suppliers.
    There are numerous opportunities to cut costs and improve efficiency in AP invoice processing. However, there are also a number of difficulties in achieving these goal. One of the biggest issues faced by several organizations is the reliance on paper invoicing. Missed or late payments are usually caused by lost paperwork. Moreover, paper documentation usually delays AP invoice processing since copies have to be physically distributed for review.

    AP automation addresses these inefficiencies and further improves accuracy, efficiency, and record keeping. In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders will help firms understand the important aspects of this significant topic. They will provide an in-depth discussion of AP automation as a growing business trend and will also offer best practices in developing and implementing best adoption practices.

    Key topics include:
    - AP Invoice Processing – Key Challenges
    - Recent AP Automation Trends and Developments
    - AP Automation and Fraud Prevention
    - Best Automation Practices
    - Outlook
