The state of ePayables 2019


In 2019, businesses and consumers are now fully engulfed by technology and the data it both creates and captures.

Accounts payable’s Big Data has the potential to become the next major force and catalyst for the profession. In fact, over the next few years, it is predicted that a new type of intelligence will emerge from this data that enables AP teams and their key partners to view their operations differently and by doing so, will force these same groups to develop new strategies and approaches.

For the AP leaders everywhere, this is the dawning of the Age of Intelligence. This new age presents those willing to seize it with unprecedented potential to transform not only how AP operates but more importantly, the true value and intelligence it can offer to the business.
