VIRTUAL EVENT

Preparing for What Comes Next After COVID-19

About the Series

Although it’s difficult to picture when the world will go back to “normal,” businesses need to start planning for what their operations will look like post-pandemic. The reality is, B2B buyer behavior will not revert back to what it was prior to the start of COVID-19, with most buyers continuing to prefer and expect digital experiences. Internal operations must change too, with the pandemic having exposed the flaws of traditional manual and paper-based processes dependent on staff being in office. This masterclass event will focus on how finance and accounting professionals can approach digitizing core business processes to set themselves and their organization on the best path for success now and in the future.

Session 1: 12 PM ET

Collaborative Commerce and the Post-Pandemic New Normal

COVID-19 has dramatically accelerated the rate at which B2B companies are embracing digitization. With some companies even choosing to close their offices and operate completely remote long-term, it’s clear that businesses’ ability to operate digitally will be a determining factor in their success even long after the pandemic. A critical aspect of this digital shift is how B2B businesses will manage the order-to-cash cycle in this new digital environment. In this webinar, you’ll learn what “collaborative commerce” is and how it will play a defining role in how businesses successfully navigate the new normal.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Understand the lasting impact COVID-19 has had on the way we work
  • Identify the challenges involved with digitizing B2B payments and how to solve them
  • Learn how companies have already started to digitize their AR operations
  • Recognize the business impact of adopting a collaborative approach to AR
