Manual processing of Accounts Payable (AP) is typically filled with time-consuming and tedious tasks, not to mention the risk of errors that can significantly impact production time, cost, and flow. To address these and other challenges within the AP workflow, companies have started to adopt automation technologies in recent years. With AP automation, organizations can optimize their AP performance through increased on-time payment rates, reduced cost-per-invoice, and early payment discounts.

Today, as a pandemic-fraught business climate magnifies the crucial issues with manual and paper-based processes, the urgency to integrate automation into AP and finance systems is more critical than ever before.

Listen as AP experts Gina Armada (MHC) and Michele Robson (Advance Local Media LLC) facilitate an in-depth discussion of why organizations need to abandon their manual, paper-based processes, and embrace automation technology. Speakers will highlight best practices and strategic approaches to capitalize on the opportunities offered by AP automation.

  • Why Automate Accounts Payable?
  • Common AP Pain Points
  • Solutions & Value Opportunities
  • Compelling Trends
  • Customer Success Stories
