“I know Scott!”

Reflections: Back to the Future

Chasing the E-Invoicing Dream: New Glenbrook Research

Companies of all sizes have adopted accounts payable (AP) automation solutions, yet recent IAPP-TAWPI and Glenbrook research reveals that e-invoicing benefits remain elusive.

Payment Geek Meet Up at Menlo Park 7-Eleven

Yesterday Consult Hyperion’s Dave Birch paid a visit to Glenbrook World HQ here in Menlo Park. We talked payments, consulting, emerging markets, and blogging.
