Episode 32: 4 Vendor Maintenance Fraud Prevention Tasks That Can Be Automated Using RPA

In my last two blog posts “Check Payment Method?  Still Needs to be Protected from Cybercriminals” and  “4 Steps to Protect Your Vendors Banking from Being Changed by a Cybercriminal Includes a Critical Step Most Companies Leave Out” I identified additional steps that will need to be done when making changes to existing vendor data.  In fact, many of the fraud prevention techniques I recommend to protect the vendor master file from fraud require additional steps.  And, since less than 30% of Accounts Payable (AP) Vendor Maintenance teams have a vendor self-registration portal, these additional tasks are manual and are added to an already manual or mostly manual Vendor Setup & Maintenance process.  RPA to the rescue.
