Online Event

10:00am to 11:00am


You can't have best practices in accounts payable without strong internal controls. They are an integral part. They are also very easy to overlook. While most executives are savvy enough to realize they need to be concerned about payment fraud, not everyone realizes they can also experience losses if they don't have the proper controls around all aspects of their AP function. Duplicate and erroneous payments, audit issues and lost vendor credits all have a deleterious bottom line impact.
