CARMEL, IN – March 15, 2017 – Determine, Inc. (NASDAQ: DTRM), the pioneering leader in global Source-to-Pay and Enterprise Contract Lifecycle Management (ECLM) Cloud Platform solutions, will present a live webinar with PayStream Advisors on Thursday, March 23, 2017 at 2PM ET / 11AM PT.
Greg Lloyd, Senior Director at PayStream Advisors, and Constantine Limberakis, Vice President of Product Marketing at Determine, will explore in depth the need to closely link procurement and accounts payable. Developing a harmonized process – and technology – are requirements for sharing insights into suppliers and the complete purchase order-to-payment history. Without these, divisions between procurement and AP will continue to plague most organizations.
The incentive of close harmony between procurement and accounts payable has serious financial ramifications. From controlling maverick spend to streamlining payments, the upshot of alignment is all upside.”
— Constantine Limberakis, VP of Product Marketing, Determine
Recent research from Paystream Advisors shows that only 15% of respondents acknowledge being completely integrated; only 12% share leadership and metrics combined. Goods being obtained without purchase orders, maverick spend, unapproved suppliers and AP having to track down authorized purchases for payments are just a few of the ongoing issues.
During this one-hour webinar with Q&A, Determine and PayStream will share their advanced thinking and best practices for what procurement and AP can start doing immediately to harmonize links and get on the same page, including:
- Research that indicates where these problem areas persist
- Best practices for improving the communication
- Technology enablers to reduce cycle times and improve compliance
- Improving how Procurement and AP interact with supplier management as part of day-to-day functions
The webinar is of particular interest to professionals in Accounts Payable, Procurement, Finance, Purchasing Managers, CFOs and Controllers. Participants can earn 1 CPE credit in Management Services.
