2016 has proven to be transformative for many accounts payable (“AP”) teams. AP departments have positioned themselves as strategic business partners that can increase efficiencies and make an impact on business operations far beyond AP’s traditional sphere of influence. AP teams interested in moving to a higher level of performance must garner the support of their functional partners in procurement and treasury and work collaboratively to change the perception of AP as a back-office team focused on invoice processing into that of a vital function that can support the strategic objectives of the enterprise.
Join Andrew Bartolini, Chief Research Officer of Ardent Partners, and AvidXchange on Tuesday, July 26, 2016 at 2 p.m. Eastern Time for a complimentary webinar, called “How AP Departments Can Maximize ROI and Efficiencies in 2016” (click here to register), based on the ePayables 2016: Eyes on Prize report . The event will highlight the report’s findings and provide insights into how high-performing AP teams have successfully evolved into generators of financial and operational value beyond its traditional domain.
The recent Ardent Partners research study, ePayables 2016: Eyes on the Prize (click here to download), has shown that transforming AP into a strategic partner is both possible and advisable to ensure future enterprise competitiveness. Advances in AP technology over the past decade, combined with the growing sophistication of AP leaders, have also helped to create greater awareness of the financial and operational value that a well-executed AP transformation initiative can deliver.
The webinar will highlight:
- The current state of the AP department and its effects on the enterprise today.
- The motivations and internal and external drivers that shape AP leaders’ priorities and plans this year and beyond.
- How AP departments leverage AP automation solutions to improve performance.
- The strategies and characteristics of the most successful AP departments and how businesses can apply these same strategies to their respective functions.
