Digital transformation is happening throughout companies, but it is finance where it is making the biggest impact, by eliminating repetitive manual work and delivering predictive intelligence never before seen.

Over the years, many technologies have been deployed that have enhanced the finance function, including enterprise resource planning mainframes, client server automation, business intelligence and analytics, cloud collaboration and robotic process automation. But all of these developments have really been leading up to the age of finance artificial intelligence (AI), which is now bringing previously unimaginable benefits to finance.

Technologies, policies and practices have been combined in various ways but, fundamentally, the problems remain the same. AI brings new levels of understanding, tracking, process optimisation, fraud detection and compliance to the accounts payable (AP) process.

In this session, AppZen will explain how finance AI seamlessly integrates with existing and future finance technologies to achieve all this, and more.

AppZen, which has introduced Autonomous AP,  will demonstrate why you’ll want to know the difference between automation and autonomous when it comes to improving your finance operations.
