Greg Bartels, IPS President and CEO, attended the IOFM AP & P2P Conference in Las Vegas, October 25-28, 2015.
Although the conference pretty much seemed the same as in years past, with no new revolutionary solutions being offered, there were plenty of solutions available to improve your accounts payable process. The solutions are there for the taking, AP professionals simply need to embrace and adopt them into their current process.
In a world that’s changing at such a rapid pace, it’s more critical than ever that we change right along with it and I’m not talking about simply improving your business processes. If you really want to improve your life, it’s time to step outside of the box.
Of particular interest was the opening keynote by Dan Lier, Human Behavior Expert and Best-selling Author, entitled Maximizing your True Potential. In his talk, Dan provides inspiration along with proven strategies for achievement that can increase performance in both business and life. The question is why do most people fail to achieve their goals? Why do people resist change? Is it FEAR (False Evidence Appearing Real) of losing control?
Whatever the reason is for you to not aggressively pursue automating your accounts payable process one thing is sure, as Dan Lier quotes "If you want to keep on getting what you're getting...Keep on doing what you're doing."
At IPS we are continually working to make it easier to embrace, adopt and integrate the best solutions into your accounts payable process, thereby improving your business, professional relationships and overall quality of life.
