Online Event Shares the Top Technologies Available for Increased Accounts Payable Success

San Jose, Calif. and STAMFORD, Conn. — July 11, 2011 Lavante, the leading provider of on-demand supplier management solutions, and Basware, the leading provider of purchase-to-pay solutions, today announced that they will be holding a joint webinar, “The Future of Accounts Payable — The Top Five Changes Coming to AP,” on July 13, between 2:00 and 3:00 p.m. eastern time. The webinar will share information on new processes, methods and mindsets to help organizations drive manual labor out of their Accounts Payable (AP) process while significantly improving accuracy and efficiency.


“In today’s economy AP departments are being asked to do more work with fewer resources while at the same time, driving costs out of every transaction,” said Tom Flynn, Lavante vice president of business development. “The good news is there are solutions to combat these problems. In most cases it is not a question of if you will adopt these new approaches but when you will adopt them. This webinar will show you the technologies available to help you succeed.”


“During the webinar, we will share the latest practices in achieving AP excellence from world-class companies,” said Bob Cohen, Basware vice president, North America. “We will also provide strategies for achieving key business benefits, such as increased visibility and control over Procurement and Finance, reduced costs, and the ability to optimize spend, cash flow and working capital.”


During the one-hour webinar presenters will explore the following topics:

  • Identifying the cost of incorrect data in your supplier population and keeping this information current and correct
  • Lowering your reliance on paper-based processes
  • Staying in compliance with external regulations (OFAC, TIN, Ins.)
  • Overcoming challenges and barriers to AP automation goals
  • The benefits of automated workflows and electronic invoicing
  • Deriving hard and soft savings from your P2P process
