You don’t have to have all the answers when it comes to finding the right purchase-to-pay processes for your Accounts Payable department. That’s why you have us.
We pride ourselves on staying on the cutting edge of P2P advancements, and one of the ways we cultivate that at DataServ is to encourage our team members to become Certified Solution Consultants through the Institute of Finance and Management. IOFM’s P2P Certification for Solution Consultants is a rigorous program that is designed “to equip vendors with the understanding of what procurement and payables leaders and their staff consider when implementing procure-to-pay processes, including thinking end-to-end, analyzing and redesigning their current processes, and supporting their organization’s evolution towards P2P.”
The focus areas of study are comprehensive of the P2P process and include:
- Advantages and benefits of developing a coherent, integrated end-to-end process
- Process mapping from recognition of need through settlement
- Compliance issues and regulatory reporting
- Vendor management: ownership, vendor selection, relationship management, customer service, and the vendor master file
We think it’s important for our team to have this knowledge so our clients can fully trust that we have the answers and ability to provide guidance and support. Trust isn’t just something we think is “nice to have” – trust is vital to our culture and the way we do business. We study it, we practice it internally, and we live up to it with our clients.
“We often talk about ‘trusting the technology,’ but it’s just as important to trust the teams that bring the technology to your organization. AP automation affects processes and relationships both inside and outside of your organization. Through this certification, we want you to know – and trust – that our team is providing you with the solutions and support you need to improve your AP processes and keep your relationships strong.” – Jeff Haller, CEO and Co-founder
