AP is so much more than invoice processing and sending money. There are various, substantial complexities involved to ensure that payments are made to the right party at the right time. Without a comprehensive network solution, you retain several inefficiencies and opportunities for fraud that will be difficult in this season of thin margins and light volumes but also inhibit your ability to grow and scale whenever the industry picks back up. In this session, you will learn how TriumphPay is evolving the Payments Network to use data, connection, and automation to create security and efficiency for our partners.
