Webcast overview

In today’s business environment, automation is essential in order to manage expanding requirements around purchase transactions in the global business world. Today’s Procurement departments in many companies have centralized AP processing that need to comply with local country requirements, touchless invoice processing and fully integrated procurement solutions. Companies are finding it difficult to manage these requirements without the appropriate integrated systems in place. One of the growing compliance items that changes constantly and has local country specific requirements is indirect tax. Procurement teams need to be compliant with indirect tax but at the same time accomplish the main goal – process invoices efficiently and accurately as possible.

Together, Vertex and KPMG LLP (KPMG) professionals are helping clients navigate these changing requirements and be compliant with indirect tax and at the same time increase productivity and automation of invoice processing. During this discussion we will cover the following key discussion points:
