“By collaborating with the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce and Infintech, we are able to provide members of the business community with thought leadership and a better understanding on how to drive cost savings,” Sneed said. “Our goal is to help attendees learn the value of payment optimization so that they are able to utilize these strategies to drive margin improvement and streamline their business processes.”
During the luncheon, both Tom Dean and Tony Grayson will outline how they leverage electronic payments within their organization. They will also highlight how electronic payments have helped drive their supplier discount opportunities, maximize their overall procurement process and streamline their internal processes.
