Simply put, automating an AP department is no easy task. It takes planning and vision, organizational alignment, buy-in from senior management and leadership, and a thorough understanding of the increasing number of technology options available in today’s marketplace.
Much like professional sports need coaches, automation projects often need consultants to draw up the game plan and evaluate the players. PayStream Advisors will be in Las Vegas on October 14-16 at IOMA’s Institute of Finance & Management (IOFM) AP Conference & Expo to help your company understand the game of AP automation.
Managing Director and automation expert Henry Ijams will be presenting a pre-conference workshop titled “How to Design, Develop and Deliver a Bullet-Proof AP Automation Plan.” It’s designed to help organizations who have been standing on the sidelines of AP automation, but finally ready to join the game. The trick is sorting out the AP automation landscape so you can complete a winning plan. Henry will answer the most pressing questions:
- What technology is available?
- Which tools are the most effective for you?
- How can your organization leverage low-cost, easy-to-implement automation?
- What simple tricks can help you make the correct choices?
The workshop will also take an undercover look at three critical components to develop your roadmap:
- Approval workflow and matching
- Electronic invoicing
You’ll also learn how to evaluate your processing costs and the key elements for developing a business case.
