We are pleased to announce that we are rolling out a new multi-city tour of the popular seminar series, The Future of AP: Five Top Changes Coming to AP.  This series began last year, as a result of a session content presented at the IFO Fusion conference hosted by Tom Flynn, VP Sales @ Lavante, and Bob Cohen, VP Marketing @ Basware.  Tom Bohn, CEO of IFO (The Institute of Financial Operations, formerly IAPP) commented about the 2011 session:

The joint seminar presented by Lavante & Basware, The Future of AP, was one of the most popular session at our national AP industry conference, Fusion 2011.  The speakers detailed the five changes coming to our industry, receiving rave reviews from the standing-room only audience.  The content was timely and provided valuable insight about how AP can become increasingly efficient and relevant in our challenging economic environment.

The popularity led us to develop the content and present as a lunch & learn seminar series which we rolled-out last fall in Chicago, Dallas, NYC, Philadelphia, Costa Mesa, and St. Louis.  Again, we heard from the attendees that not only did they find the content relevant, but that they welcomed the chance to network with their colleagues and peers.

The seminar covers the following changes:

– More Importance Will be Given to the Quality of Supplier Information
– Supplier Networks Become a Reality
– Technology Provides New Ways to Automate AP Systems & Processes
– Buyers & Suppliers Collaborate
– More Cooperation Between Finance & Procurement

The 2012 series kicks off in Houston on Feb. 16 followed by Atlanta on Feb. 23.   In March, we will be going to Boston, Seattle and San Jose, with Detroit and Toronto in April.  Stay tuned for more information about the entire series.  And, click here for more details and to register for the Houston and Atlanta events.
