Welcome Message

Thank you for taking part in our Accounts Payable in 2020: How Do You and Your Company Compare? survey. The accounts payable function is evolving at an ever-increasing rate. We’re trying to determine the full impact (or not) of these changes. Compensation, reliance on paper (checks and invoices), and use of data analytics are some of the issues investigated. You’ll have an opportunity to share your thoughts on what you’d like to change at the end of the survey.

To thank you for sharing your insights, every participant will receive a copy of the Executive Summary of the survey results and an invitation to attend a one-hour webinar on August 14th, where the results will be discussed. Attendees at the live webinar will have the opportunity to earn 1 CPE. We will make the webcast available after the live event to those who couldn’t make the live event. Thank you for your time.
