Lydia Rojas

Accounts Payable Manager at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute

Dedicated to defeating cancer, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute relies on its operations to support its mission.

But supply chain issues were creating problems. A match exception here, a credit hold there, and some suppliers weren’t paid on time.

In Dana-Farber’s case, the reasons for the late payments were a symptom of misalignment between AP and supply chain. Addressing the root causes required the team to take a holistic look at their operations and make large changes to the departments.

The tough questions needed to be answered: How do our operations compare to other leading organizations? How can AP and supply chain collaborate on issues to get better results? What technology is needed to support both departments?

Join the webinar to hear the transformation of Dana-Farber’s supply chain and AP.
• Aligning AP and supply chain together to ensure on-time payments
• Assessing talent gaps and staffing up during a tight labor market
• Leveraging a recovery audit to invest in human capital and tech resources
• Bringing automation to supplier onboarding and compliance documents
