THE INSTITUTE OF FINANCIAL OPERATIONS THE INSTITUTE OF FINANCIAL OPERATIONS

The Institute of Financial Operations is a non-profit, membership-based professional association serving the entire financial operations ecosystem, with a particular focus on the accounts payable discipline and the related fields of information management and data capture. The Institute grew out of the merger of four associations: International Accounts Payable Professionals (IAPP), International Accounts Receivable Professionals (IARP), the National Association of Purchasing and Payables (NAPP), and The Association for Work Process Improvement (TAWPI).

Based in Orlando, Fla., with affiliates in the U.S., Canada, and the UK, The Institute serves as a global voice, chief advocate, recognized authority, acknowledged leader, and principal educator for people in financial operations. The Institute has a community of nearly 70,000, which includes 9,000 members and customers, and an additional 61,000 financial operations professionals.

The Accounts Payable Quality Metric You Musn't Ignore Any Longer

Date: March 21, 2018; 2 - 3 p.m. EST  

Your transactions will not always match, and as a result, your invoices will not be 100% error-free and without defect. These mismatches are exceptions. It's imperative, therefore, for you to understand how exceptions occur, where they originate from, what options you have for identifying and correcting exceptions, and how, over time, your costs of processing transactions can be driven down significantly as you improve this very impactful Accounts Payable metric, your Percentage of Exceptions. This presentation will walk you through research and analysis, highlighting some key areas for your review, while also offering advice on where to start with respect to eradicating these defects from your organization.
