Closing the P2P and Sourcing Divide

There is no doubt, the full value of a Purchase-to-Pay (P2P) transformation project is much more than just transaction efficiency. Sourcing through improvements in spend aggregation and focused category management can unlock significant value. 
However, Procurement spend a lot of time negotiating and relationship building (and they’re proud of the savings they have achieved), only for savings to be lost as staff circumvent processes and buy “off-contract”.
 
In this webinar recording, we detail how Procurement, Finance and the rest of the organisation can be aligned in P2P: turning sourcing events into an awarded contract and catalogue that can be purchased against, and also tracking spend against contracts – in other words, ensuring visibility of current compliance and a method for measuring improvements.
 
But it goes further than that. Organisations should also be managing contracts in central repository that automatically notifies relevant staff when a contractual renewal is due. This ensures they have sufficient time to review existing terms, evaluate supplier performance and pricing and prepare for further negotiations.
 
Having a solid and well-implemented Purchase-to-Pay system, fully integrated with Contract Management is essential to ensure the savings promised by procurement are fully ‘captured’ by the rest of the organisation.
