ReadSoft Releases Special Report Disclosing Best Practices For AP Shared Service Centers

The free report, Best Practices for Your AP Shared Services Model, is produced by The Accounts Payable Network (TAPN) and made available by ReadSoft at

The special report provides finance and information technology leaders operating accounts payable (AP) shared services with proven key process and automation practices for achieving the primary goals of the AP shared-services model: 

  • reduced costs
  • greater efficiency
  • leveraged economies of scale
  • better service

The newly released report also delivers best practices for invoice handling and AP automation that adds even further “bottom line” benefits beyond the profit gained by the primary goals of AP shared services.

“We see so many businesses that have gone through the pain of centralizing their AP department in a shared-services model, but have not realized the cost-savings and efficiencies that they aimed for by centralizing in the first place,” announced Bob Fresneda, ReadSoft North America President.  “By following the process recommendations in this report and automating those processes with the right data capture and workflow, organizations will not only realize these basic goals, but will also transition their AP shared services to value-added business partners in the organization.”
