In 2016, the accounts payable (“AP”) team is well positioned to move beyond providing value to the enterprise based on increased efficiency and towards becoming an intelligence hub for the organization at large. The AP teams that have their “eyes on the prize” now must aim to become the sort of strategic partner that can showcase its usefulness at the highest level of business operations.
This webinar is based upon Ardent’s newest report which provides a comprehensive, industry-wide view into what is happening in the world of AP and captures the experience, performance, perspectives, and intentions of more than 200 leaders from accounts payable and financial operations. The webinar also includes benchmarks, recommendations, and analysis that AP teams can use to better understand the state of accounts payable today, gain insight into best practices, benchmark their performance against the Best-in-Class, and ultimately improve their operations and performance.
