Fast Forward: Procure-to-Pay Automation Trends for 2018

On-demand Webinar | Free

Big changes are coming for businesses of all sizes. Discover how to ensure those changes result in opportunities for growth rather than obstacles.

New trends in financial technology will help optimize resources, reduce risk, and increase profitability.

Join us on Thursday, December 7 as we reveal those trends and how they can benefit your business:

  • Indirect Spend – Find out how implementing an indirect spend program can add flexibility to your cash flow and increase your working capital.
  • Electronic payments – Even if you’ve automated the front end of your AP processes you’re not reaping the benefits available until you automate this very important step in the process, the payment.

We’ll also wrap up 2017 by reviewing the necessary steps you need to take on the following issues for year-end closing:

  • 1099 updates
  • OFAC compliance
