At the same time, you may believe that such a transformation will take months or even years and you may foresee a lot of up front investment and pain in the process.
If you are a CFO, Controller, CIO or Accounts Payable Manager, you have a lot of great low and no cost options when choosing ways to sharpen your and your team’s skills. There are blogs, video blogs, podcasts, and webinars that are available to provide you and your team new ideas and approaches to your enhance your current processes to make them more streamlined and efficient.
Many corporate finance leaders want a more productive, streamlined, automated digital system that is paperless but know that budgetary restrictions would not allow for building a business case for accessing the capital required to improve their organizations. This is a common misconception based in these facts: ERP system upgrades are expensive and time consuming (7-9 months conservatively) and require outside consultants; onboarding to a new ERP system is more expensive and more time consuming (12-24 months) and also requires consultants as well.
Typically in our blog postings we don't toot our own horn. We usually talk about finance, accounting, accounts payable and accounts receivable and how they can be improved, what steps to take to improve them and at the end of each blog, we offer some related reading or videos to support someone who has taken the time to read our posting, knowing that they may have more questions or want more details thereafter.
In today's blog posting, however, we are going to take a moment to pat ourselves on the back for two awards received this month and tell you why they probably should matter to you:
First -- OnPay Solutions has been named to CFO Tech Outlook's Top 10 Accounts Payable Solution Providers - 2018.

If you're in Accounts Payable, you probably realize that things aren't quite as automated and streamlined as they are in some other departments in your organization. This is true for even the most progressive companies. It's for good reason, too. Controllers want to maintain control of cash going out the door. Cash is KING in any organization!
