AP Thought Leader to Impart Knowledge during Oracle Advanced Controls OOW 2013 Session

Oracle OpenWorld (OOW) 2013 is shaping up to be a break-out year for Oracle Advanced Controls. Among other highly-anticipated events, we are very pleased to announce that Mary S. Schaeffer, publisher and editorial director for Accounts Payable Now & Tomorrow (AP Now), will be co-presenting with Cisco Systems at a session entitled “Top 10 Advanced Controls for Procure-to-Pay to Improve the Bottom Line” (session ID is CON8814).

Mary is a nationally recognized accounts payable expert. She is the author of over 15 business books, most focused on accounts payable issues, as well as a monthly newsletter and a free weekly e-zine. She speaks regularly at industry events, one-day seminars, conferences and online events.

In the OOW session Mary plans to talk about how automated control solutions such as Oracle Advanced Controls can stop cash leakage and contribute to the bottom line.

Organizations that have made the most progress in shifting away from manual controls are adopting advanced control solutions and showing what a difference those controls make, says Mary. "Controls are more critical than ever with regards to the accounts payable process. Luckily, technology can now play a larger role in helping organizations with these controls, helping reduce erroneous payments and preventing fraud," Mary says.

We expect a full-house at this session so be sure to register early!

Whether you were one of the 50,000 attendees in San Francisco or one of the million+ online attendees – we’d like to thank you for joining us at Oracle OpenWorld last week! With temperatures in the 80s and 90s, attendees traveled the overheated streets to join packed keynotes and general sessions – all to find the information they came in search of – Oracle solutions to address their business requirements and challenges.

The buzz of this year’s OpenWorld was all about ‘The Cloud’. And, the financial management team joined in the cloud buzz with Thomas Kurian’s keynote which highlighted our ERP Cloud Service as the most complete cloud service on the market. Offering the full breadth of business operations, including Financial Management, Risk and Control Management, Project Portfolio Management, Procurement, Sourcing, and Inventory Management, Oracle ERP Cloud Service transforms the back office into a collaborative, efficient, and intuitive hub.
