Improving AP Using Automation Tools and Adoption Methodology

with guest speaker

Larry Williams, Executive Advisor, SynFiny Advisors


As AP departments are under increasing pressure to lower operating costs and/or create value, while increasing overall efficiencies, it is vital to understand how to best leverage technology enablers into benefits that not only improve payables, but also enhance processes upstream from AP (Sourcing, Procurement, Receiving, etc.).  In this session, you will learn how to:

-Understand AP automation in improving upstream functions capabilities
-Enable technology using “building blocks” to provide the foundation of an end-to-end organization
-Recognize the need to balance the integration of People, Work Processes, Technology and Internal Controls
-Focus on “changing behavior” versus “deploying technology” using Adoption Methodology
