Overview of What You Will Learn

Did you know that weak processes in your P2P chain could be silently siphoning off your company’s hard-earned profits, making it less competitive as well as less profitable?

There is no line item on financial statements that says “losses due to sub-optimal and outdated P2P processes” but if there were, it might be higher than you think. The avalanche of change combined with advances in technology over the last few years has opened up the floodgates.

Even best-practice organizations often don’t recognize these minefields.

SpendMend is please to invite you to special session hosted by industry expert Mary Schaeffer, founder of AP Now and best-selling author of over 20 business books, (full bio below) to help you to identify these potholes in your own processes and fix them. Most of Mary’s solutions won’t cost you a red cent.

After this session, you will be able to:

  • Identify the process issues that are costing your organization dearly
  • Create procedural changes that will make your P2P process more efficient and cost effective
  • Take full advantage of the technology available (and that you have already paid for)
  • Ensure you earn all your early pay discounts
  • Improve your financial reporting and make better business decisions
  • Stop the avalanche of duplicate copies of invoices
