CHARLOTTE, N.C., April 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AvidXchange is proud to announce their keynote speaker for their 2013 User Forum in Costa Mesa, California. Henry Ijams, Managing Director of PaySteam Advisors, will be leading a session entitled, "Metrics of High Performing AP". He will be discussing what lessons companies can learn from innovators in the Accounts Payable Industry, and how these innovators are using "payments" to revolutionize the traditional AP function. AvidXchange strives to create a high level educational experience for all of their attendees, and provide current and prospective clients with best practices in the Payment Automation Industry to take back to their organizations, which they ensure by selecting industry leading professionals to present at the conference, such as Henry Ijams.

"Our research consistently reveals that there is an information gap between the innovators in finance operations and everyone else. Finance is changing at such a rapid pace—yet many finance managers don't have the time to learn about the emerging best practices," commented Henry Ijams, Managing Director of PayStream Advisors. "The opportunity to speak at AvidXchange's User Forum is truly an honor, and I look forward to sharing my best practices with AvidXchange's clients to further their education on automation," added Ijams.

Henry Ijams has over 25 years of experience focusing on trends and technologies in financial operations automation, including strategies regarding the automating and benchmarking of purchasing and payables processes. Through PayStream Advisors, Mr. Ijams consults with domestic and international organizations that want to take advantage of leading practices and automation solutions. In his keynote session at the AvidXchange User Forum he will provide attendees with actionable insights into how they can: define Finance's role in starting the transformation effort, profit from payments, and drive change without resistance, fear and pain.

AvidXchange holds two conferences annually to connect with clients face-to-face, and continue to foster relationships and optimize the user experience. The first conference will be the AvidXchange User Forum held in Costa Mesa, California on May 7th and 8th to provide convenient travel for West Coast Users. The second conference will be held in Charlotte, NC in the fall for East Coast Users.
