22 July 2015


STAMFORD, Conn./ SAN JOSE, Calif.— Basware, the leading provider of e-invoicing and purchase-to-pay (P2P) solutions, together with Lavante, the leading provider of on-demand supplier management and profit recovery solutions, today announced that they will be re-booting their popular educational series with a five-city lunch and learn seminar program to present “The Future of AP: The Top Five Changes Coming to the Accounts Payable and Purchase-to-Pay Landscape.” The series begins in San Jose, CA on August 6th at Morton’s the Steakhouse from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm.

The seminars, which will feature a deep dive discussion about industry trends and new technologies led by Lavante and Basware, are focused on five critical trends that will reshape the AP landscape in coming years by making businesses more productive and their internal departments more integrated and cooperative. These five future shifts include:

  • The inevitable development of an end-to-end P2P solution
  • New levels of value coming from the master vendor file
  • The emergence of supplier self-service (portal)
  • The growing importance of commerce networks
  • Unlocking new financial value streams

Lavante and Basware have worked closely with major industry associations including The Institute of Financial Operations (IFO) on the series curriculum and will award CPE credits for attendance at these seminars.

“The joint seminars by Lavante & Basware have been consistently among the most highly rated and highly attended sessions at our annual Financial Industry conference,” explained Ken Brown, President of the Institute of Financial Operations. “The content is always timely and provides insights into how the constituents throughout the P2P process can leverage new technologies and strategies to become more productive.”

"As leading service providers, Lavante and Basware can provide real-world examples and lessons from over 1 million companies who are using our solutions and services," said Bob Cohen, Vice President, North America for Basware.
