AP Efficiency Resources

Save money and improve accounts payable performance with IOFM’s tools for AP efficiency

Every year, accounts payable teams are asked to do more with less – process more invoices with fewer people, inadequate automation technology and sometimes misaligned operational processes. And these headwinds are likely to become more challenging in the coming years, between the “Great Resignation” and pending retirements.

Now, more than ever, tens of thousands of AP leaders rely on IOFM’s expertise to increase their team’s efficiency – to work smarter, not harder.

For more than 20 years, IOFM has provided resources to help financial operations teams work with the greatest levels of confidence and efficiency, including:

  • Annual benchmarking data to compare your AP performance to your peers’
  • One-on-one access to a team of experts to address your specific best practice/process improvement questions
  • Articles, tools, and templates to identify and quickly implement improvements

Take advantage of IOFM's resources and tools to help ensure your AP team is equipped to overcome barriers to efficiency.
