4 Ways Shared Services Organizations Can Extend the Value of their ERP Investments with AP Automation

Posted: 03/17/2017

ERP applications lie at the heart of financial operations, yet many are not optimized because the Accounts Payable processes that feed them are manual and paper-based. As a result, data fed into the ERP is incomplete, incorrect or not timely, processes are inefficient, and decision-makers do not have access to key variables.
