How Increased Security and Time-Cost Savings of AP Automation Modernizes Payments for Clubs

Recorded On: 10/04/2018

With the advent of new financial technology, accounts payable can now be fully automated from invoice to reconciliation with increased security that’s proven to eliminate both internal and external fraud. AP automation is also driving significant cost-time savings associated with workflow efficiency along with the reduced incidence of fraud. 

This webinar will discuss how the shift to electronic B2B payments and automated AP for clubs can speed up cycle times, improve discount capture, and produce new business revenue. The CFO of the Harvard Club will also present a case study in this session which demonstrates these results as well as other benefits and increased efficiencies they've experienced through AP automation.
