The 12th Annual Accounts Payable 2013 Conference & Expo is an AP membership meeting focused strictly on education, automation, leadership and process improvements for the accounts payable function.

Tom Glassanos, president of Bavelos Group, will lead “Achieving Today's Accounts Payable Mandate: Get Profitable!,” one of several concurrent workshops on day one of the 12th Annual Accounts Payable 2013 Conference & Expo. Scheduled for Oct. 21-24, 2013, at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, NV, AP Expo 2013 is produced by the Institute of Finance & Management (IOFM), a division of Diversified Business Communications. Attendees, may register for AP Expo 2013 by clicking here, will have access to several professional education opportunities, including the Form 1099 Certification Bootcamp and AP Certification Workshop, as well as their related certification exams.

"Susie West comes from a leading, very well-respected shared services company, and we’re happy to have her presenting at AP Expo 2013," said RD Whitney, executive director of the IOFM. "Several world-renowned speakers will lead hard-hitting, information-packed sessions at this year’s event, in Las Vegas. AP Expo 2013 is a must-attend conference for any AP professional looking to stay ahead of the top trends in this profession."

A robust accounts payable agenda drives AP Expo 2013, the only AP membership meeting strictly focused on accounts payable education and practical approaches to automation, leadership and process improvements. AP Expo 2013 welcomes Platinum Sponsor Perceptive Software, as well as a long list of sponsors at the Gold and Silver levels, too. Information on how to sponsor the AP Expo 2013 is available.

For a number of reasons, e-invoicing projects fail. West’s workshop will afford attendees the opportunity to discuss their own situations, capabilities and limitations. Examining what an organization must do in order to succeed, she and others will explore how the 10 critical success factors can be worked into various organizations’ circumstances.

West, who sold e-invoicing technology for five years in Europe and the United States, began her career at a conference company where she established a division focused on shared services events. With 12 years of professional experience behind her, she later founded sharedserviceslink.com, the leading community and information provider in the shared services space, and speaks at several industry events annually.
