Dwyer, Research Director for the Aberdeen Group’s spend management and financial management research practice and Kara Pritchett, Syncada from Visa’s Global Director of Marketing, for a webinar discussing the components of the contemporary financial ecosystem, best practices for managing this ecosystem to drive better visibility into corporate cash flow, and the technology solutions that leading organizations are currently leveraging to drive down costs.

What attendees will learn:

  • How a network connecting corporations, suppliers and banks can enable you to substantially reduce costs and operate more efficiently
