Author of two books and more than 50 articles, Casher hold a B.S. from Cornell University and an S.M. in Management from M.I.T.’s Sloan School of Management, where he has completed coursework toward a Ph.D. in the very same discipline. Since 1996, Casher has worked with IOFM. As president of Casher Associates, he consults on project management, process management and information technology.

Casher’s presentation trains its focus on the strategic value of the vendor master file, mastery of which is often part and parcel of compliance. Many of the controls key to the procure-to-pay process demand accurate and complete information from the vendor master file. Getting and keeping the vendor master file clean can be an elusive goal, yet the resource must be clean in order to be manageable. Casher will share with attendees the many variables involved.
