AP Automation and Failsafe Supplier Engagement

Best Practices driving success in AP Automation at Schaeffler


In this webinar, we speak with a key change maker at Schaeffler Group, a leading global supplier to the automotive and industrial sectors, Tobias Kundmüller, Global E-Invoicing Project Lead.

How has Schaeffler managed to become the example for digital transformation when so many other organizations, organizations with much less complexity, have failed? According to Boston Consulting Group, 70% of digital transformation projects fail. Gartner put the number even higher only a few short years ago and in the face of that, Schaeffler has not only digitally transformed, but has brought over a mass of their suppliers with them.

In discussion with Tobias Kundmüller, we focus on the best practices Schaeffler (with Tradeshift) developed to rapidly digitize the supply chain.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear a real-world change maker outline what steps they took to ensure their AP Automation project was successful.
