CEU Approved | Pre Recorded

  • 60 minutes

The truth is that companies ignore accounts payable best practices at their peril and the impact is felt on your bottom line. It's that simple—yet some organizations continue to turn a blind eye to the leakage that occurs due to poor or inefficient process in their AP operations. Don't be one of them!

The accounts payable function is changing at a dizzying pace. Unfortunately, keeping up to speed these days can be like herding cats. While some best practices remain steadfast, others simply no longer work and are being replaced by new practices just now appearing

Join this session by expert speaker Mary S. Schaeffer, where she will include a discussion of the newest best practice every organization should implement to ensure crooks don't get their hands-on money or sensitive information.
