Share

On-demand Webinar | Free

Even with an ERP system in place, businesses still encounter manual pains and operational inefficiencies in their accounts payable (AP) processes. Automation is a well-known solution to this problem — the challenge is selling it internally.

In this live webinar, we explore how the negative impacts of a manual environment can go beyond the AP team and ultimately impact c-suite priorities such as spend management, supplier relationships and regulatory compliance.

Discover how to over come your biggest obstacle to AP automation — upper management — and ensure your project hits the ground running by building the ultimate business case with steps, including:

• Explaining why automation matters to the c-suite
• Evaluating how your process is currently functioning
• Identifying what processes will be transformed and much more!
