The world of accounts payable is evolving, and with it comes a whole new set of opportunities for AP professionals. Gone are the days when AP was just about pushing paper and crunching numbers.

As the field transforms, so do the roles within it. From automating invoice processing to embracing AI and machine learning, the possibilities are endless. But where do you fit into this brave new world of AP? What gets you up in the morning and excited to head into work?

Understanding your AP personality can help you navigate your career path and make the most of the opportunities ahead.

What’s Your AP Type?

Let’s break down the four distinct AP personality types we’ve identified: the Dreamer, the Future CFO, the Warrior, and the Early Adopter. Each has its unique flair, motivations, and strengths. So, which one are you?

The Early Adopter

You’re first in the queue for the new iPhone, and you’ve got Sam Altman on speed dial. You’re excited by the possibilities that new technologies bring to the AP department and always look for ways to implement the latest innovations. For you, automation and digital transformation are not just buzzwords—they’re a way of life.

The Warrior

Ah, the Warrior. When you see hours saved, you see a chance to post a new high score for invoices processed. AI might beat you for sheer pace, but nothing beats your dedication to the task in front of you. Invoice processing might be a thankless task, but you’re not in this for gratitude.

The Dreamer

The Dreamer is the Zen master of the finance team. When you see time saved on manual processing, you see less time eating pizza at your desk at month’s end and more time doing the things you love, whether that’s spending time with family, indulging in hobbies, or just enjoying some much-needed R&R.

The Future CFO

Ambitious and career-driven, the Future CFO is frustrated by the mundane, transactional tasks that keep you from strategic work. You have your eyes set on the corner office and are eager to climb the career ladder. You want to focus on big-picture goals and make impactful decisions that drive the business forward. Routine invoice processing? You’d rather leave that to the robots.
