Published on 5 min read

Nashville, TN ; Toronto, ON – October 1, 2018 – Versapay Corporation (TSXV: VPY) ("Versapay"), a leading provider of cloud-based invoice-to-cash solutions including electronic invoice presentment and payment, automated accounts receivable, cash application and collections management, is pleased to announce that its chairman Art Mesher in an exclusive to Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP), is publishing “3V’s Part Two, Darwin’s Law and the X Factors”. In addition to publishing the paper Mr. Mesher will be participating in a fireside chat during the Edge 2018 Conference to discuss its contents.

“Art published the initial 3V’s paper 20 years ago which became an institutional framework for our industry. CSCMP recognized the work as one of the most influential writings of the organization’s 50 year history,” commented Rick Blasgen, President and CEO of CSCMP. “In an exclusive to CSCMP Art has released 3V’s Part Two and we are grateful for this contribution.”

“Today we have an ‘X’ exponential proliferation of the microprocessors, an ‘X’ exponential rate of speed and ubiquity of wireless networks along and an ‘X’ exponential increase of connected devices. Today’s ‘always on and always connected’ has created a ‘nowhere to run and nowhere to hide’ environment,” stated Arthur Mesher, Chairman of Versapay. “This Big data, Machine learning, AI, IOT, Blockchain enabled environment is creating an ‘X’ factorial increase in transparency and speed that is redefining business relationships and supporting systems. This collision, dubbed the ‘X factors’ is causing both enormous disruption and opportunity, as old business models are sunset and new business models dawn a new day. Using the 3V’s framework this session will identify the ‘X factors’ that will impact those that thrive or die as the exponential rate of change will have such velocity that the extinction threat of their processes, systems and companies will be real.”

The Fireside chat will be lead by renowned analyst Adrian Gonzalez. He will interview Arthur Mesher, Distinguished Service Award Winner and author of The 3V’s Part Two.
