Bridging the Gap - Confronting the Challenges of Decoupled Payments (I)

Session Description

As organizations continue to pursue converting checks to electronic payments in accounts payable, there has been an adverse effect in accounts receivable when it comes to dealing with decoupled remittance processing or incomplete and missing electronic remittance. This can represent a growing challenge for organizations that are receiving more and more electronic payments resulting in lower overall auto cash application rates. 


In this session, we will discuss the challenges faced by accounts receivable as the payment landscape changes and present strategies for integrating electronic payments and accounting systems.


Learning Objectives:


  • Learn innovative strategies of reconnecting the pieces and streamlining the straight through processing for accounts receivables
  • Insight into overcoming electronic payment challenges and enhancing the integrity of the remittance information.
