From Filing Cabinet to 100% Digital: Finding a Better Way with AP Automation
presented by Henry Ijams, VP Market Strategy, AvidXchange Stephanie Wilczewski, VP, AP Automation Product Manager, Bank of America
Long before we faced the unexpected challenge of working remotely, businesses everywhere were looking at their AP processes and saying, “there must be a better way.”
Eight months later, the “nice-to-have” items on the AP wish list are requirements to get the job done. With more and more businesses reporting that they will continue with partial or full remote work for the foreseeable future, AP automation is gaining traction as finance leaders discover that their AP department is past due for a digital overhaul. Join Stephanie Wilczewski and Henry Ijams as they explore the challenges AP teams face and the benefits of an AP automation solution.
