Editorial Director and Publisher of "Accounts Payable Now and Tomorrow"


Mary S. Schaeffer, editorial director and publisher of Accounts Payable Now and Tomorrow, has the inimitable ability to find accounts-payable-related solutions that really work – without making a major dent in the bottom line. With 15 years of experience researching and writing about payment issues, Schaeffer offers a unique vantage point into accounts payable processes and productivity. She has published numerous books on accounts payable best practices, including Fraud in Accounts Payable: How to Prevent It; Travel and Entertainment Best Practices, and Controller and CFO’s Guide to Accounts Payable.

“Technology and automation can deliver powerful value propositions to the accounts payable organizations of today and tomorrow,” said Schaeffer. “During IFO Fusion I will be pleased to share some of the best practices I have observed from my research for improving overall AP efficiency, supplier management and credit recovery.”
