10:00 am - 10:30 am USING SMART TECHNOLOGY TO BECOME A REVENUE HERO

Nicole Dwyer - Chief Product Officer, YayPay
Eben Paul - CFO, Mammoth Carbon Products, LLC

The credit-to-cash process is a complex one. Managing it successfully, with smart tools, helps AR professionals achieve “Revenue Hero” status in their organizations. After all, without the consistent management of layered and often very manual processes, businesses would not be invoicing customers, receiving payments, and processing cash flow back into the business. There would be no revenue.

10:30 am - 11:00 am MAKING AP DIGITIZATION A REALITY: WHY NOW’S THE TIME TO TRANSFORM HOW YOU CONNECT WITH YOUR SELLERS

Mike Jud - Senior Director, Product Marketing, Tradeshift
Peter Hamilton - Global Finance & Administration (HRO) Offering Leader for BPS, DXC

Digitizing AP delivers more than just cost savings and process efficiency —it puts finance in an unmatched position to deliver unique insights, optimized cash management strategies, and cutting-edge innovations to the organization. And now is the time for AP teams to drive that transformation with supply chains top of mind in every boardroom as a result of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Join our expert speakers as we discuss how digitizing AP can not only help mitigate the negative impacts of the present crisis by reducing buyer-supplier friction, but also how it will provide the foundation for your organization to rebound quickly and emerge stronger no matter what our ‘new normal’ looks like.

Among the topics we’ll be discussing are:

  •    How AP professionals can best contribute to supply chain sustainability and business
  •    The business case for digital AP
  •  How to encourage suppliers to welcome automation
  •     How AP will drive automation and optimize the cash-to-cash cycle
  •    Emerging trends and how AP can enable for the future

12:00 pm - 12:30 pm DID THE PANDEMIC FAST TRACK BETTER FINANCE OPERATIONS? LET’S KEEP THE FOLLOWING PRACTICES…

Brad DeMent - Partner, ScottMadden
Trey Robinson - Partner, ScottMadden, Inc.

The explosive spread of COVID-19 has “forced our hand” to deliver finance shared services in many new ways. Practices that we have been debating for years were immediately “green-lighted” and put into production overnight. Remote work became the norm. The use of video tools exploded. Business continuity planning became highest priority. But what happens as the world slowly eases back to the new normal? What changes should “stick” for the long-haul, and what practices should we discard as necessary band-aids? During this session, we will discuss post-pandemic topics, including:

  • Virtual teams and organizations
  • Outsourcing implications
  • Delivery models impacts
  • Digital transformation and automation
