Now Is The Time To Optimize Accounts Payable (AP)
A year ago, the COVID lockdown caused organizations to cut spending. For many, cutting too deeply created a chain reaction that impacted relationships with customers and suppliers.
The good news is that companies are recovering faster when they focus not only on how much they pay suppliers, but how they pay them.
An Accounts Payable Spend Analysis can quickly show you how to close the gap between when you get paid by customers and when you have to pay suppliers. Maximizing cash flow and sustainably generating rebates on your AP will makes a big difference in your business during the recovery.
