One aspect of the conference was the open forum style where various users could discuss the different ways iPayables InvoiceWorks was used in their organizations. They discussed Change Management strategies and there was quite a wide array of ideas on how best to implement electronic invoicing in large organizations. Vendor Adoption strategies also varied widely, from contractually requiring it and withholding payment from non-compliant suppliers to much softer approaches.
A discussion of Ad-hoc reporting allowed users to discuss what reports other companies had created and how they were using the electronic invoicing data, from audit compliance to discount tracking to employee approval times. A discussion of Dynamic Discounting and Card Payments allowed users to compare the mix of payment options other users were using based on their organization’
The conference concluded with industry break-out sessions where users discussed functionality specific to their industry and added input on what might be beneficial future additions.
