Managing the Accounts Payable Function

Live Webinar | CEU Approved

  • 60 minutes

You’d never know it from the lack of attention many companies give their accounts payable process, but the accounts payable function is a critical component for any organization’s operations. Handled poorly, as it sometimes is, it can hurt the bottom line, alienate critical vendors and open the organization to fraud, IRS fines, and penalties, extended state, and federal audits and negative attention from the press.

Join this session by expert speaker Mary Schaeffer, where she will help you to ensure your organization does not run into the issues discussed above.

Session Highlights:

After this session you will be able to:

  • Manage the accounts payable process effectively

  • Reengineer individual tasks that are not best-practice

  • Supervise staff for maximum efficiency

  • Take the appropriate steps to manage management expectations

  • Create positive vendor relations 

  • Build realistic expectations with AP’s Internal Customers

  • Prepare for The APDepartment of Tomorrow

Why You Should Attend:
