Description

THIS IS STRICTLY A B2B EVENT ONLY.

Due to the incredible response we received last year from this event, we are delighted to announce that our “Future Of Finance – AP Automation” event is back! Don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity to gain process-specific knowledge and technology insights to improve your business and fraud mitigation.

Processing both paper and electronic invoices typically requires manual effort that can be costly, error-prone and of course open to fraud. By automating your Accounts Payable Department you can streamline the invoicing process, eliminate potential human errors, significantly reduce the cost per invoice processed and improve fraud mitigation.

“By 2020, just 2 years from now…more than seven billion people and businesses, and at least 30 billion devices, will be connected to the internet. With people, businesses and things communicating, transacting and even negotiating with each other .”

Join us to learn how you can improve your AP Process with Control & Efficiency.


Why attend?

From setting up new suppliers, raising purchase orders and approving invoices, the AP workflow is ripe with fraud opportunities.

Kefron, in conjunction with BDO, are hosting an educational Lunch & Learn event to discuss these challenges and to learn through industry research and case studies how AP Automation can assist with Fraud Mitigation in your business.


Speakers

Our keynote speaker, David Devereux, Director of Risk & Advisory Services at BDO Ireland, will discuss the pitfalls and common control weaknesses that can increase the risk of fraud and will highlight the practices and control features that can be implemented to create a more robust AP control environment and reduce fraud risk to a minimum.

David has an in-depth understanding of internal control best practice across a number of sectors. He is an expert in delivering value-added Risk Advisory services including, Sarbanes Oxley Readiness, Enterprise-Wide Risk Assessments, and in developing ERM frameworks.

Alistair Thacker, our Head of Technology will demonstrate how to streamline the invoicing process, saving you money and time by helping to repurpose your team to more valuable tasks.
