Conference Offers 200+ Sessions in Leading Technology and Best Practices for AP, AR, P2P, Document Management and More
February 9, 2012, Ashburn, VA, and Orlando, FL —The Institute of Financial Operations, the globally recognized authority on best practices in financial operations, has announced Brainware Inc. will be the title sponsor for Fusion 2012, The Institute’s premier event for peer-driven learning and networking opportunities covering the full spectrum of financial operations. Brainware is the market leader for intelligent data capture and the only software vendor to CAPA-certify its entire sales force.
Fusion takes place May 13-17, 2012, at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee. The program will include more than 200 breakout sessions, presenting attendees with the latest technology and best practices related to accounts payable, accounts receivable, purchase-to-pay, automation, document management, data capture, outsourcing, operational leadership and more. Brainware executives will be presenting on customer success stories and the strategic opportunities created by automating AP, AR and mailroom operations with intelligent data capture technology.
“Partnering with The Institute of Financial Operations has given Brainware an unparalleled ability to keep its hand on the pulse of financial departments that stand to gain the most from technologies that remove manual document sorting and data entry from the equation,” said Charles Kaplan, Vice President of Marketing at Brainware. “Fusion 2012 is an excellent opportunity to engage with the financial operations community and discuss IT-driven strategies that have helped large businesses eliminate paper from their AP process, boost AR productivity by 400 percent to 500 percent, instantly sort and capture actionable data directly from the mailroom and more. We are proud to return as Title Sponsor for this educational event.”
Kaplan’s session, “Managing the Long Tail: Automating AP Across Your Entire Supplier Base,” will present case studies detailing how intelligent data capture technology provides a holistic solution to the challenges of accounts payable automation, without the limitations inherent to adopting electronic data interchange (EDI), e-invoicing and other common applications.
“The annual Fusion conference is a genuine treasure trove of information for the financial operations professional, providing a vast landscape of success, productivity and profitability for every conceivable aspect of the enterprise,” said Thomas M. Bohn, President and CEO of The Institute of Financial Operations. “As an innovative collaborator and advocate for transforming these business processes with technology and practical insight, Brainware is a perfect fit to co-headline Fusion 2012. We’re looking forward to what The Institute believes will be its most successful and memorable conference to date.”
