6 Pro-Tips for AP to Earn a Seat at the Strategy Table

APP2P17_Tipalti_Whitepaper_CoverWhat if over two-thirds of the people around you didn’t think much of the work you do?

More than three-quarters of senior managers believe that accounts payable is a tactical back-office function.

Why? Perhaps it’s the deluge of work accounts payable departments go through each day:

  • Setting up suppliers
  • Gathering payment details
  • Collecting tax forms
  • Keying invoice information
  • Matching invoices with purchase orders and shipping documents
  • Tracking down purchasers
  • Searching for lost or misplaced invoices
  • Setting up payments
  • Reconciling payments
  • Resolving payment issues

All these manual accounts payable tasks leave little time for strategic, value-added activities. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

IOFM’s latest white paper shows how emerging technologies and managed services can free accounts payable from the drudgery of transaction processing, so these professionals can focus their time on tasks that are more professionally fulfilling and more valuable to the organization.

The white paper details how manual processes negatively impact the perception of accounts payable among stakeholders, tallies the time businesses waste on manual invoice processing, describes one approach to touchless invoice processing, and shows the benefits of touchless invoice processing.
