Thursday 11th July, 2019 at 10:30 AM - 11:15 AM BST
Join this webinar to hear Andy Cay, Head of Procure to Pay at Reckitt Benckiser, talk about its latest process improvement project in Accounts Payable. RB is a global business, processing invoices from a high volume of vendors, across multiple ERP systems and a BPO Accounts Payable function. RB has also reorganised into two distinct business units, one for health and the other for hygiene and home products. Like all Accounts Payable functions, regardless of scale, RB always strives to pay its suppliers promptly and ensures its ledgers are accurate, which is a challenge for every business, but especially during a reorganisation and legal entity changes. RB recognised the need to improve its controls in order to be more proactive in identifying and resolving potential errors.
