In today’s increasingly competitive global economy companies are placing a premium on optimizing working capital management. This has made Accounts Payable (AP) automation more important than ever. Companies recognize that the benefits provided by AP automation – improved financial visibility, the ability to capture more early payment discounts, and enhanced supplier relationships – provide a significant competitive advantage. So how do your AP automation initiatives stack up against those of your competitors? Find out during an interactive webinar on September 4. You’ll learn the results of a new AP automation study conducted by IOFM and sponsored by Esker.

For the first time, the presenters will share data on AP automation technology adoption, key business case drivers, technology plans, top implementation challenges, and more.

Topics covered include: e-invoicing, workflow routing, and PO-based invoicing.

There also will be time for your questions. Don’t risk letting your AP department fall behind the competition – register for this webinar today!

  • Esker works with many companies to automate processes throughout the cash conversion cycle of order-to-cash and procure-to-pay.What we see is that there is enormous value in removing paper from these critical document processes. On the flipside, continuing to rely on paper puts strict limitations on an organization’s ability to improve order-to-cash and procure-to-pay performance. To help our customers Quit Paper, we offer a single platform to automate all the processes that help generate so much of it. You can leverage the platform as an on-premise server solution or on demand with a Software as a Service approach.
