Today’s research has proven that automated and integrated Accounts Payable operations bring organizations many benefits, including increased efficiency, lower costs, and a best-in-class AP department. However, many companies push off automation adoption because they claim to be satisfied with their current AP processes, or are unwilling to undergo a “big bang” conversion from their current state. One explanation for this resistance is the perceived impact that many organizations feel automation will have on their financial processes and infrastructure systems. Fortunately, these fears are eliminated when AP software implementation projects are conducted carefully, strategically, and in line with a company’s unique business objectives and timelines. Such automation initiatives allow organizations to take their departments from an “adequate” current state to best-in-class AP.
This webinar is for organizations considering automation that want to transform their AP processes without disrupting or harming their current state environment. It will feature key insights from PayStream Advisors’ 2017 AP automation research, as well as information on how organizations can control and manage their level of AP automation in a way that works for their unique business strategy and goals.
