This week’s #DMCollaborator article is from Jamie Radford, Founder and CEO of The Accounts Payable Association.

For Jamie, these are exciting times in the world of accounts payable and procure-to-pay, as technology assists people in their roles and in upskilling.

Jamie anticipates technology will have a huge impact, with the purchase ledger clerk and AP clerk roles evolving into more AP analytical roles, with a lot more AP analysts. Areas such as reporting, preventative reporting, will become more important. Then there are areas such as new payment methodologies, blockchain, that are coming down the road.
