No PO – No Problem: Solving the No PO Invoice Predicament

On-demand Webinar | Free

AP Professionals are the unwelcome downstream beneficiaries of procurement processes with inadequate controls – invoices that magically appear with no purchase order and no audit trail about the purpose of the purchase or how it is to be adjudicated in terms of approval or account coding. And while some procurement teams are seeking to implement stringent controls – sometimes referred to as a “No PO – No Pay” policy – AP knows that one way or another that No PO invoice is a liability that must be paid and which they now must resolve.

Recognizing that although No PO invoices should be curtailed wherever possible, they remain as inevitable as death and taxes. So what strategies can AP utilize to more effectively manage No PO invoice processing in a more controlled and efficient manner? This webinar will highlight the best practice processes and technologies that can help liberate AP from the No PO Invoice predicament by examining:

  • Effective strategies for discouraging the use of No PO invoices in the first place
  • Key benchmarks on how best-in-class companies are minimizing the incidence of the No PO invoice
  • Intelligent technology solutions to automate No PO invoice processing when they do occur
  • Proactive approaches for AP to team with Procurement on revamped Procure-to-Pay processes designed to curtail – if not eradicate – the No PO invoice
