Procure-to-Pay Specialist Certification – Live Training


Thursday, May 2, 2019 | 10:00AM - 4:30PM Eastern Time

This webinar includes registration to the Procure-to-Pay Specialist Certification (APPS) Program in IOFM’s E-Learning Center. The course includes access to the e-textbook, on-demand training video and 3 attempts at the exam.

The full-day live webinar is an additional $395 value that is provided for free for new enrollments only as part of this special offer. If you are already enrolled as a self-study learner but interested in attending, please contact [email protected] or 207-842-5557.

In one full day, our expert trainer prepares you to earn your certification credentials as an Accredited Procure-to-Pay (P2P) Specialist and is available to answer your questions live and provide additional guidance. Designed for those below the manger level, this course walks you through the best practices for executing AP and Procurement processes whether you’re already working in a cross-functional team or simply aspire.

Buying or paying smarter is only half the battle. To truly operate as a best-in-class function, Procurement and AP must be aligned. This course provides best practices for breaking down the silo-thinking to enable seamless handoffs between both halves of the P2P process. This course is ideal for AP and Procurement specialists who want to improve their holistic P2P performance.

Senior Trainer, IOFM

A 27-year Johnson & Johnson Global Business Services veteran, Judy Bicking is a recognized pioneer and leader in Credit Management and in Procure-to-Pay.

After a successful career in AR and AP management, Judy was tapped to lead the development and design of J&J’s US Shared Service Center.

By benchmarking best practices across industries in a highly decentralized AP environment, she successfully helped J&J transfer 100+ AP departments and 1.2 million invoices to its new Shared Services Center. The marked improvements in process productivity, reduced P2P cycle times and errors, increased compliance with global, federal, and state laws, reduction in fraud risk, and improved internal policies all contributed to the new center’s recognition as World Class.

In addition to creating a successful Shared Service Center, Judy also championed training for her staff, investing in the team earning the IOFM AP Departmental Certification designation. The team successfully designed and implemented web invoicing, a P-card program, and an efficient imaging/workflow system. Judy then applied her successes to J&J’s European P2P Project team, designing and implementing a Global Shared Service Center in Prague.

A globally recognized AP Practice and Change Management leader, Judy is a sought-after subject matterexpert, trainer, and speaker. She has  authored and helped develop the IOFM’s AP online learning center, and is a co-founder and SME for the IOFM AP Certification program.
