The Legacy of Covid-19 in Accounts Payable
Covid-19 caused AP teams to rapidly move to remote working, and for many, paying suppliers quickly via purchasing cards (P-Cards). With no time to put appropriate controls in place around P-Card spend, many duplicate and incorrect payments were made. For most organisations, these remain undetected. This webinar explores the legacy of P-Card and invoice spend errors and duplication and how to detect this and put preventative controls in place.
Continuous ESG Monitoring
Without daily checking of your Master Supplier File (MSF) against global ESG risk sources, you risk purchasing from a supplier that could damage your reputation or interrupt your supply chain. With legislation on the horizon and increasing prioritisation of ESG compliance with customers and investors, continuous ESG monitoring has become essential for public and private sector organisations.
The Specsavers Finance Shared Services Division supports over 2,000 stores in the UK, Ireland and the Netherlands. The AP team processes more than 100,000 invoices each month using one ERP system, Open Accounts V8, across multi-organisational entities.
