Stephen spent most of his working career in or around Procure-to-Pay, as a supplier, buyer, and a software provider. This unique insight into the whole journey has been instrumental in shaping a new perspective on the solutions and how to deliver products that support the whole supply chain, from sourcing to payment. Over the years Stephen has been involved in a vast number of invoice automation and billing projects and has seen technology come and go; from OCR to the establishment of the e-Invoicing Network, to new self-service capabilities. This in depth knowledge is helping Ivalua leapfrog competitors to bring truly digital invoicing and payment capabilities to market. Away from Invoice-to-Pay, Stephen is a published author on 17th Century history.
