Automating AP Benefits Your Entire Business—Not Just Accounting

Automating AP Benefits Your Entire Business—Not Just Accounting

If your accounting people, department managers, and CFO are bogged down in manual processes, it’s time to get rid your old accounts payable systems. Especially now when technology will allow such a vast improvement. Their time is valuable, and you should no longer be complacent to allow them to spend it on tasks that technology and automation can actually handle better than they can—in far less time!

Universal Work-From-Home: Will It Become the New Normal?

The definitive science is a long way from being in, but from the pictures alone, it definitely appears that when people with office jobs do those jobs from home instead of commuting—the environment wins. Not only in America, but all over the world 

Of course, we also have entire swaths of the economy that work in “non-essential” retail and service jobs that will hopefully be going back to work soon. But even with those folks getting back on the road, the impact would still be very significant if we were able to maintain universal work-from-home as the new normal.

Working From Home? Me Too. Here Are a Few Ways To Make It Better

Well, we all seem to be working at home now, and you either love it, or you hate it. Not much middle ground, and I suspect whether you love or hate it has a lot to do with how many things (and people) besides work you have going on at home.
