Two Day Account Payable Best Practices Seminar (Washington, United States - October 4-5, 2018) - ResearchAndMarkets.com

September 18, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 18, 2018--The “Account Payable Best Practices” conference has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The accounts payable function is changing at a dizzying pace. Technology, new frauds and regulatory changes are all taking their toll. What worked yesterday may not work today. Given the current business environment, mounting regulatory pressures, and the increased visibility and importance of the accounts payable function, best practices are something with which every professional needs to be conversant. 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.

The talk 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. This is one session you might want to invite your colleagues in accounting, auditing and payroll to so they implement appropriate best practices and are not bamboozled by some of the newest frauds.

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!

This interactive session will be filled with real-life examples and attendees will have the opportunity to not only interact with other attendees but see how they’d treat different delicate situations.
