Revealed: 3 Secrets for Securing C-suite Approval for AP Automation

On-demand Webinar | Free

Securing the C-suite’s approval for AP automation is easier than you think! AP automation improves upon all three of the C-suite’s top functional priorities: capital, control and collaboration. In fact, AP automation is moving from a “nice to have” to a “must have” in the eyes of more senior executives.

But many AP leaders fall into the trap of focusing their automation proposals on tactical, departmental benefits. As a result, proposals that appear to be a slam-dunk are stuck in limbo.

During this interactive webinar, attendees will learn:

• The functional priorities and concerns of the C-suite
• Exclusive IOFM research on the C-suite’s perceptions of AP
• How AP’s role is changing to help the C-suite meet its needs
• Three ways AP automation delivers strategic value to the C-suite
• Why the strategic benefits of AP automation are more important than ever

If you are trying to win approval from senior management for a business case for AP automation – or you want to improve the strategic standing of your AP department – don’t miss this webinar.
