Supplier Management from A to P: When Accounts Payable Leads, Strategic Supplier Relationships Follow

Wednesday, August 9, 2017 | 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM EST | Free

Accounts payable’s role in on-boarding suppliers is critical to getting an initial supplier relationship off on the right foot, and throughout the lifecycle AP is the conduit to keeping the relationship running smoothly – making sure the supplier gets paid on time and maintaining compliance with all regulatory and business terms.

As such, AP has an opportunity to take a leadership role in driving more strategic supplier relationships to maximize and monetize the inherent value for both parties.

This webinar will highlight how AP can leverage best practices and innovative technologies to become the nexus of supplier management by:

  • Streamlining supplier on-boarding processes
  • Ensuring compliance to minimize risk
  • Providing superior customer service – and self-service access – to suppliers and internal customers for real-time answers to AP inquiries
  • Enabling “paperless” electronic invoicing to drive cost efficiencies for the buyer and supplier alike
  • Driving bottom-line savings through flexible dynamic discounting solutions to monetize the payables process
