Maximize the Value of Your Bank Account Analysis Statements

Analyzing your banking spend is as important – and pesky – as ever. Statements stretch dozens, sometimes hundreds, of pages. The 2,000+ AFP codes sometimes defy comprehension. Yet this is how your company pays for banking services. We’ll discuss how taking control of your account analysis statements will help you:

• Examine account structure and services for strategic improvements

• Understand your wallet allocation – balances, services, credit

• Enhance bank relationships

• Respond to variances

• Incorporate best practices and benchmark pricing

• Untangle compensating balances, balance assessment fees, nominal and effective ECRs

“Accounts Payable: More than Making a Payment”

Accounts Payable (AP) is more than making a payment. Once considered a necessary support function, organizations are realizing a strategic approach to AP can enhance the bottom line and improve business results. At the core, a payment's most basic utility is to transfer value from one party to another. However, the impact of payments is broad, influencing numerous areas including operations, expenses, supplier relations, working capital management, sales performance and risk. To take advantage of this opportunity, progressive organizations are working to develop strategic plans, automate invoice processing and outsource routine AP operations. This informative session will review the key components to an AP strategy, explore the types of available AP solutions and examine their benefits. Regardless of an organization's current state of AP, a refreshed approach can help drive meaningful results.
