Session: How Agios Pharmaceuticals Managed a Fast Month End Closing by Implementing Accounts Payable Invoice Automation

For nearly 15 years, Agios has been committed to furthering the science of cellular metabolism to identify therapies for patients with unmet needs.


This session is all about how Agios implemented accounts payable invoice automation and the results that came out of that. The Boston-based pharmaceutical set two main objectives prior to the selection of an invoicing solution: overall efficiency improvement and close accounts payable in time. To select the right solution, Agios had one huge criteria: a strong integration with Oracle Financials Cloud as they just implemented Financials. Learn in this session about the selection process, achieved objectives, the additional benefits of invoice automation and a return on investment less than 1 year.
