What AP Always Wanted to Know About AR, But Was Afraid to Ask (And Vice Versa)

Thursday, July 23, 2020 | 2:00pm - 3:00pm Eastern Time | Free Webinar

In today’s environment, it’s more important than ever to ring out process inefficiencies in our payment and receivables processes. But we habitually overlook the most obvious place to look for performance improvements: the interplay between AP and AR. The truth is that rarely does either side fully understand the needs of their counterparts – causing unnecessary delays for each other’s organizations.

Do these questions sound familiar?

  • “As long as the PO number is in the body of the email, in which I attached the invoice, why isn’t that good enough?”
  • “What can we do to get more people to use our Vendor Portal?”
  • “How can I get paid faster?”
  • “How can I get vendors to send electronic invoices and accept electronic payments?”

This free webinar is your chance to understand the often faceless professional on the other end of the invoice. Join IOFM’s Executive Editor Jess Scheer and veteran consultant to AR practices (and longtime IOFM AR certification trainer) John Salek, as they share the most common misconceptions from both sides of every business payment. This highly-interactive session will also provide ample time for both groups of professionals to candidly ask questions and learn from each other.
