Accounts receivable (AR) is no second-rate department. Not only is it usually the largest company asset, it deals directly with customers and cash flow — things businesses can’t do without. You'd think internal AR processes would be on the cutting edge of innovation, right? Yeahhh … not so much.
While departments like sales, marketing and payroll have embraced the use of software solutions, AR has been slow to catch up, with many still relying on sticky notes, calendar reminders and spreadsheets to manage post-sale collections activities.
Read this eBook to discover how automation can:
• Be a complementary tool that eliminates tedious tasks
• Be multi-dimensional, in that its usage can be extended into other areas of AR
• Drive repeat sales and allow you to get paid faster

Traditionally, rollout of a new software version has been a critical and painful process. In the past, new versions were implemented along with a maintenance period (i.e., service downtime),
resulting in loss of business for that period. This downtime was generally acceptable when there were only a few releases a year. But now—in a more fast-paced world of hosted software-as-aservice (SaaS) solutions, increased responsiveness and daily or even more frequent releases—down times are no longer acceptable or a?ordable.
Continuous Delivery is a practice used in the software industry to automate and improve the process of software delivery. It is all about adopting practices to release high-quality software fast through automation of the build, test and deployment processes.

Construction companies are meeting the challenge of ever-intensifying competition by refining their business operations with standardized operating practices and “visible” information that is shared among multiple departments.
“Before, only owners who wanted to grow a very large company would worry about transitioning from the informal business they started to formalized, standardized business processes,” says Jim Flynn, CEO of Maxwell Systems, a leading provider of construction management software solutions, expert services, and best practices. “But in the current environment, you also have to make that transition just to stay competitive and improve your profitability.”
If you’ve started to think your lumber and building materials (LBM) business could be getting more from your software, then it might be time for a change.

The management of financial data in an organization is of paramount importance. Reporting, evaluating ROI, making adjustments across the business, and increasing revenue depend on good, accessible financial data that can be updated and integrated across systems and software.
For these reasons, many organizations have turned to master data management (MDM) software in the effort to better store, access, search, retrieve, and analyze their financial data. These MDM solutions are able to collect data within a single unified, fully integrated, user-friendly platform. However, in order to be most effective, MDM applications must also have capabilities in data relationship management (DRM). DRM software is able to describe and enforce the relationships between data, no matter where it's located within an organization, to provide a holistic and consistent solution.

As more pressure is placed on the finance team to provide meaningful insights more frequently, it is becoming increasingly necessary to speed up business processes, as well as have immediate access to the most up-to-date information. The traditional expense reporting process is a drain from both perspectives.
Using software to manage employee expenses can provide a more efficient means of managing the process, however most solutions are simply a digital version of the traditional paper process. This can limit the amount of time savings you can gain.
This paper will demonstrate the time savings you can accomplish by implementing a real time expense reporting solution versus one that relies on employee generated expense reports.
