Commercial Payments International Global Summit

Think Tank Session: Convergence between AP and AR platforms

Vice President & General Manager, Emerging Business Lines
The supplier is at the center of the AP and AR convergence trend. One of the most important elements of a successful end-to-end commercial payments solution is understanding the needs of all of the parties involved. This means understanding how to automate the invoicing process for the buyers (AP Automation), how to implement an effective integrated payables (IP) program, and finally, how to automate the billing process for suppliers (AR Automation). While there are various solutions on both ends, the Integrated Payment solution in the middle is critical for both the buyer and supplier. Yet, this is often overlooked, leaving a gap – a missing payments engine.
Learn why supplier activation is essential to a successful end-to-end commercial payments solution and how to evaluate a truly integrated, end-to-end solution.
