The advantages of accounts receivable (AR) automation are clear: It’s a faster, less expensive and more reliable alternative to manual invoicing. But lack of clarity has many companies uncertain of how or where to start. After all, moving every customer to automated invoicing or custom-designing different processes for specific customers aren’t exactly recipes for success. So what is the best option?

In this webinar, we will discuss the results of the AR Automation Study by The Institute of Financial Operations. Co-sponsored by Esker, the comprehensive survey inquires a group of AR professionals in order to gain insights into critical operations metrics, emerging trends in automation and the general consensus about moving from a paper-based process to cloud-based automation solutions.
