PayCLT: Ernest Rolfson, CEO Finexio – Accounts Payables As A Service

Join us to learn about innovations within the accounts payables industry, where checks somehow remain the prevalent payment choice

Business to business payments remain a difficult proposition, with greater than 50% of payments still occurring with checks today. Efforts to create a smoother experience are underway with industry players like AvidXchange and Bill.com, but a lot of work still remains to bring B2B payments into the 21st century. Finexio is working to provide seamless embedded Accounts Payables solutions to businesses with a wide variety of suppliers and complex payments needs. Come hear about the payments industry pain points and innovative solutions in flight to make B2B payments better!

The event will be held in person at EY’s wavespace in South End, with a virtual zoom option.
