Fresh Ideas for Creating Winning Payment Strategies
Greg Ritch, National Solution Consultant, CommercePayments

Few organizations have developed and employed a structured payment strategy.  In this session, Greg will highlight areas for improvement within a “typical” payment process, share ideas you might consider for your organization, and discuss implementation methods to ensure a winning payment framework.

Speaker Biography: As part of his role at Commerce Bank, Greg works with clients to evaluate P2P processes and determine where AP Automation can increase efficiencies and deliver value to their bottom line.  Helping clients create effective payment strategies to optimize revenue and decrease costs is an area of emphasis.

After starting his career as a programmer with IBM, Greg transitioned to establish himself as a consultative partner to clients helping them evaluate, select and implement technology-based solutions to solve critical business challenges and achieve organizational goals.  He has worked with businesses across many industries ranging from small, “mom and pop” to Fortune 1000 companies.  Greg’s focus the past 20 plus years has been Document Management and Process Improvement solutions including Accounts Payable Invoice and Payment Automation.

Greg earned degrees in Computer Information Science from State University of New York (SUNY) campuses.   He has completed various professional certifications including APSC (Accredited Payables Solution Consultant) demonstrating his overall commitment to and understanding of AP processes.
