Newark, DE, June 08, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Controllers and CFOs everywhere always look for ways to improve their bottom line. The search has intensified in recent months as the economy weakens. That’s why it is so surprising that many leave money on the table by ignoring parts of their accounts payable function. That’s why they have developed a number of resources to help organizations everywhere put some of those funds back in their pockets says Mary Schaeffer, a nationally recognized accounts payable expert and publisher of Accounts Payable Now & Tomorrow (www.ap-now.com).
Schaeffer, also the author of a dozen business books published by John Wiley & Sons, has put together a webinar entitled The Controller & CFO Crash Course: Simple Ways to Maximize Accounts Payable Productivity to be given on June 19th. CDs of this event will be available on July 1. Not only will she go through about a dozen strategies, she’ll show you how to figure out the bottom line hit your organization takes by not following the recommended practice.
When writing her book, Preventing Fraud in Accounts Payable (John Wiley & Sons August 2008) she interviewed Mark Evans, Principal, Bottaboom Consulting, a telecom auditing firm, and was both impressed and horrified at what she learned from him. He has agreed to join her webinar series and lecture on Are You Being Overcharged on Your Telecom Bills? How to Make Sure You're Not! on June 26th. The CD of that lecture will be available around July 10.
Accounts payable success, warns Schaeffer, is in the finer points. And, alas, it is not quite as easy as one might think. Recognizing the importance of understanding the details, Accounts Payable Now & Tomorrow has put together a packet of resources to provide Controllers & CFOs with the detailed information they need to run a first class accounts payable operation. The Accounts Payable Executive Set for Controllers & CFOs is comprised of CDs, a book and an annual subscription to the Accounts Payable Now & Tomorrow newsletter.
