Episode 10: This is What Can Happen When an AP Practioner Solves the Biggest AP Question

Today’s podcast is a conversation with Jason Widmann, a Director of Accounts Payable.  We will discuss how he developed a new tool to reduce both live calls and emails, to solve a pain point with the highest volume of AP inquiries - fielding questions on the status of invoices.  And since he is from AP, he developed the cloud-based software with three key elements in mind to make it easier for AP teams to implement: 

·         Adoption by Vendors

·         Implementation Timeline

·         Cost $$

Listen to the podcast to learn more about the AP reQuest cloud based solution.  Stick around to the end, because at the end of the interview, Jason gives an exclusive offer to listeners of this podcast.
