Why the Hospitality Industry Is Focused on Automating Their Payments Process

Speakers: Kara Koepsell, VP AP Automation, Corporate Spending Innovations, Bob Dunigan, SVP Finance Operations, Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts, and Chris Koepper, CFO, Kohanaiki Private Club Community

Many financial leaders have so many critical tasks to focus on from audits, to financial statements and optimizing cash, that payment automation has not been a priority, but costs the most time and money. Corporate Spending Innovations is taking a proactive approach to understand the payment industry trends. This educational webinar will concentrate on where the market is going, common pain points that other financial leaders are facing, and what is driving a change in the industry.

Speaker: Jonathon Goodman, CHAE, CPA, Director of Finance, Fairfield Glade Community Club

What data is important to gauge business fluctuations? In this session, learn how to draw from multiple sources of information (i.e. weather) to use as real-time data for up-to-the-minute financial results and trends. Post tailor-made dashboards to the cloud and deliver your targeted information to the right people in time to make important decisions. Target membership, determine spending patterns and declining use, and identify demographics for marketing purposes. All of the information is provided in real time for real decisions. Finally, go right to the data behind the scenes, instead of having to produce reports out of your POS system.
