Under pressure to address risk related to manual vendor management processes, the University of Tennessee used a small, focused team and had PaymentWorks up and running in 100 days. Once live, they culled and used real-time data from the new processes to chart a course for smooth integration with their ERP-SAP.
As the University of Tennessee transitions to a new ERP, Director of Accounts Payable Tisha Marshall will share lessons learned and highlight:
- How untangling 20 years’ worth of vendor data is aided and expedited by automating the collection of updates and changes
- How consolidating the ‘go live’ team brought the University value in record time
- How investing in technology for the tactical has paid off by freeing the team to be more strategic with their time
