Visit Website View Our Posts

Here are are five 2022 trends in payables to watch, inspired by a recent report from the Accounts Payable Association.

1. AP Integration for Collaboration

The more solutions that are integrated into a central business management solution, the better business leaders can improve collaboration between their various business units, including procurement, manufacturing, warehousing and overall accounting. When Accounts Payable software is integrated to central accounting software like ERP, month-end closings and other critical processes become substantially more efficient.

2. Teleworking Continues

In recent months, we have seen workers return to the office in large numbers. While much of the COVID strain has been eased lately, expect to see continued efforts to enable remote and hybrid work spaces, especially in back-office units like accounts payable.

3. Refocused Energy on Data Security

As pandemic strain eases, expect to see companies return to focusing on cybersecurity as a top concern. Payments fraud represents one of the most common types of cybercrime with email compromise as the primary method fraudsters use to attack businesses.
