Using Controls and Segregation of Duties to Build a Bullet Proof AP Operation 2021

This training program will detail how to create a bullet-proof AP operation that is setup to detect and proactively prevent fraud from occurring. During this session, the webinar presenter will discuss real cases of AP fraud and the controls that organizations later realized needed to be added to their AP operation, unfortunately too late to prevent these costly incidents. In addition to discussing good controls, he will also discuss common controls that are ineffective, provide no value, or even leave AP departments with a false sense of security while they are in reality still very much exposed.

Why Should You Attend:

Controls are essential to a strong AP operation. Too many controls slow down AP operations, delaying payments. Too few controls leave the organization exposed to errors and fraud. Segregation of duties can conflict with customer service needs and the desire to get work done quickly and efficiently. How do you establish the proper balance?

In this webinar, attendees will learn how to use controls and segregation of duties to build a bullet-proof AP operation without compromising the efficiency of AP operations or the ability to deliver excellence in customer service. They will also learn common controls that are ineffective, and the not-so-common controls that are the best protection against those looking to take advantage of weaknesses in the AP process.
