"Mary Schaeffer has combined her considerable knowledge of the accounts payable process with the learning and benchmark statistics from top companies to produce a world–class guide to the AP process. Without Mary Schaeffer, and IOMA, AP would still be a neglected financial process without any formal reading to explain the complexities of a process that most companies think is simply paying the bills. This book is a must–read for anyone working in, directing, or managing AP operations, both seasoned professionals and those new to the process."
Linda Sawyer Sisko, Programs Manager, Cisco Systems, Inc.
