From the rise of remote work to the inconveniences of paper checks, it’s no surprise that a recent survey indicated that 93% of CFOs are already digitizing accounting operations. But not all digitization efforts are created equal. This is especially true when integrating solutions with ERPs like Microsoft Dynamics.
In this episode, we speak with Versapay senior product manager Meredith Mitchell and national partner manager David Gersten about the state of AR in 2022, including their experiences building new and improved integrations to Dynamics ERPs, how improved maturity in AR technology aligns with broader goals of the CFO, and their view on evaluating AR solutions.
