Description:

Many organizations already have the technology and talented AP staff to manage payments and prevent fund loss. That's part of the good news. The other is that many AP issues causing fund losses can be avoided by making sure effective processes are in place to avoid duplicate payments, overpayments, lost credits, data entry mistakes, and overcharges.

By reducing errors that cause financial loss, organizations also reduce the associated time and labor costs to correct errors and recover funds.

This webinar provides simple and inexpensive recommendations for corrective actions to improve processes using real-life examples.
