Many times, companies require business operations to use in-house ERP capabilities for their accounts payable automation and accounts receivable automation needs. Too often, though, these in-house ERP capabilities hinder performance because they take a long time to implement and fail to meet the unique needs of the business. It’s in situations like these that a company finds it valuable to build an automation solution outside of their ERP, like Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE) did when they built a DataServ AR automation solution that connects to their ERP.
At many companies, AR automation is so far down the priority list that it’s a challenge to get it off the ground, and in these instances companies often rely on the capabilities of their in-house ERP to achieve AR automation. There are times when an in-house ERP solution makes sense, but frequently a company is better off looking into a more robust quote to cash solution, such as the one DataServ provides, because it offers technology that complements your ERP, reduces the need for internal development resources, and has a faster start-up that can increase business competitiveness.
SPE Vice President of Finance Michael Schillo and RubinBrown LLP Partner and National Practice Leader Brandon Loeschner will discuss all aspects of building AR automation outside your ERP in an educational breakout session at this year’s Fusion conference. Fusion is conducted by The Institute of Financial Operations (IFO) and is the premier conference and training event for financial operations professionals. This year’s conference runs from May 5-8 in Dallas, Texas at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center. Michael, Brandon, and DataServ CEO/Managing Partner Jeff Haller will conduct a panel discussion session, Think Outside the ERP: Why Building Your AR Automation Solution Outside Your ERP is a Smart Move, on Wednesday May 7 at 4:30 pm.
