Presenter: Mary Schaeffer, Founder and Publisher of AP Now

Sadly, accounts payable is often seen as a necessary evil. Alas, it adds a lot, especially when it comes to your organization’s bottom line. People inevitably think that when you talk about boosting productivity in accounts payable, you are talking about automation. That’s definitely part of the equation, but a very small part. There’s really a lot more you can do, if you take the time.

There are many new ways (and some overlooked older ones) to boost your accounts payable function’s productivity. That’s why we’ve invited Mary Schaeffer, founder of AP Now and author of over 20 books, to address our invited audience on this critical topic.

Join us and learn how to:

  • Identify simple ways to reduce costs without reducing staff
  • Implement several operational best practices that also elevate departmental productivity
  • Review your operations to identify error prone spots to implement change
