Effective Vendor Communications in Today’s Hyper-Connected World

Vendor Self-Service Portals - Keys to Reducing Costs

Over the last several years, vendors’ interactions with AP have changed significantly. One of the results of this change is increasing vendor expectations of accounts payable departments. Among other things, vendors want the ability to receive and deliver information now. They don’t want to call or email AP departments for invoice inquiries to be put on hold or have their calls returned days later. They want answers immediately. They don’t want to fill out paper onboarding documents or fax back paper W-8s and W-9s.

In addition to wanting immediate service from AP, today’s vendor representatives do not hesitate to contact senior management or post on social media to complain about relatively minor issues, often caused by the vendors themselves.
