Add Value to Accounts Payable and Your Organization
In today’s compartmentalized corporate world, it is hard to look at a single department and understand how their function can affect the company on a big-picture level. This can be especially hard when looking at the accounts payable department. AP professionals are usually focused on one thing – getting the bills paid on time, so that materials and services keep rolling in. When new systems or changes are proposed, it is easy to only focus on how the proposed add value to accounts payable, rather than the company as a whole.
For companies to reach their full potential, every department needs to be looked at as a single link in a long chain – if even one link is weak, that could break the entire chain. By taking that next step in the evolution in accounts payable, the entire AP department will affect your company in ways you may have never considered.
