About this webinar.

Modern accounts payable — beyond optimizing working capital.

Accounts payable often fails to rise to a top priority for management and yet it’s an essential lever for optimizing working capital to fuel growth. In this session, we look at how modern AP practices and tools have evolved in response to digital payment innovations, software integrations, and even ambient technologies. We will consider the risks associated with AP processes, and how to manage them. The session will also focus on how taking a strategic approach to accounts payable carries important benefits, looking at the role and responsibilities of the various stakeholders for such an approach. Finally, we will review AP automation tools, how they fit into the overall financial tech stack and how to evaluate the right fit for your organization. Ultimately modern AP seeks to free up both working capital and the time of valuable finance and accounting talent to focus on higher-value analytical work.
