Live Discussion Overview:  

The ubiquity of new technology has reset customer expectations, creating a new standard for speed of service and user experience. Thanks to Netflix, which was quick to adopt this new technology, customers expect an intuitive user interface and around-the-clock availability with zero tolerance for errors.

While many companies have incorporated automation into their businesses, accounts receivables has been lagging to catch up to the digital revolution. AR departments continue to print and mail invoices in-house, then process checks and apply cash manually. The truth is that AR teams are in dire need of a “Netflix Solution” – an electronic answer to manual mailings, inefficient remit processing and the lack of customer self-service.

On Wednesday, June 15, 2016 at 1:00 PM (EST) join Ed Jordan, CFO of Billtrust, and Karen Webster, CEO of MPD, for an interactive discussion on the new digital AR revolution. This is not your ordinary round table. We like to consider it our version of “Speed Dating,” covering all aspects of today’s strategic, digital invoice-to-cash landscape.

Key Takeaways:

– How digitizing and automating the entire invoice-to-cash process reduces costs and improves operational efficiency.

– B2B payment trends – how are businesses paying today, and what does this mean for AR?

– Network-based payment solutions.

– What are companies doing to battle cyber security and avoid fraud?

– Advances in cash application – the hybrid model.

– Automate and accelerate electronic adoption.

The pressure on banks to modernize their payments capabilities to support initiatives such as ISO 20022 and instant/real time payments has been exacerbated by the emergence of COVID-19 and the compelling need to quickly scale operations due to the rapid growth of contactless payments, and subsequent increase in digitization. Given this new normal, the need for agility and optimization across the payments processing value chain is imperative.
