A New Era of Streamlined AP Automation: Going Beyond ERP

On-Demand Webinar | Free

ERP systems provide a great way to align data between purchasing and AP, but do not offer the functionality AP really needs to reduce cost and improve efficiency before the invoice is entered into the system.

 Ask yourself these questions:

  • Are you overwhelmed with paper?
  • Are you manually entering invoice data into the ERP system?
  • Do you end up deleting a lot of duplicate invoices—but only after your team has already invested time working on them?
  • Have you tried implementing EDI, but found it too expensive and only viable for a select group of suppliers?
  • Do you feel your broken processes are damaging your department’s reputation?
  • Are you making important business decisions based on the “noise” from your internal and external customers, rather than from solid metrics?

If you answered “yes” to some or all of these questions, join Meenakshi Nilakantan and Judy Bicking for this important webinar that discusses how to move into a new era of automation—one that goes beyond ERP.
