The role of accounts payable (AP) is shifting to be more efficient, effective, and strategic. AP has the ability to help drive out costs, improve its scalability, and add revenue to the organization. The effective deployment of AP automation allows for better communication with trading partners and a reduction in costly defects while supporting a revenue/rebate model for payments. This session will review critical issues within the payables domain and explore methods and tactics to improve the overall value of AP and its positioning within finance, featuring a continual exchange between the two finance domains of AP and treasury in the context of a more comprehensive look at AP processes and value.

The entire pay-to-receive environment has become more complex over time as payment options increase. There are newer payment types, but the older ones are not going away. Companies must figure out how to get paid in this environment of “more and multiple” while gaining efficiencies and control. Automating receivables while adopting digital solutions more vigorously is vital. This session will also explore how closed loop networks work and how to navigate the range of changes. Closed loop networks like FedNow and Real-Time Payments (RTP) will be included in this practical and fast-paced discussion. Your hosts come from Deluxe, a payment fintech, and Strategic Treasurer, a research and advisory firm.
