Thursday | September 14th | 12 PM CT
Presenter: Mary Schaeffer, Founder and Publisher of AP Now

While the accounts payable function was traditionally viewed as a routine aspect of operations, that is changing. Merely employing recognized best practices is no longer enough. Yes, they protect against fraud and result in fewer duplicate payments and enable regulatory compliance. But, what about those organizations and professionals who are looking for more, those who want to squeeze every last drop of efficiency and profitability out of their accounts payable operation? In this session we’ll identify eight strategic opportunities, for those professionals willing to push the envelope and go the extra mile.

After this session you will be able to:

  • Establish reasonable expectations around AI enabling you to get the most out of it
  • Create a continuous user-friendly learning platform
  • Develop investigative skills to help weed out AP errors
  • Incorporate additional productivity shortcuts from common Office tools
