5 Ways to Maximize Value from Procure to Pay Implementations

Purchase-to-pay processes cover the activities supporting the acquisition of goods and services from the perspective of data, administration and payment - so “onboarding” suppliers, the requisitioning and ordering processes, delivery and receipt of goods and services, then finally invoicing and payment. This briefing paper looks at purchase-to-pay (P2P) implementations and key points to consider to maximize the value that can be obtained from such systems. Organizations implementing P2P for the first time and those looking to improve current tools share many of the same goals and issues, and both can see a range of benefits arising from appropriate and well-chosen technology.

LIVE WEBINAR | Customisation of B2B Purchasing

CIPS Knowledge partner Jaggear will discuss how the Amazon-effect becomes more ubiquitous every year, and B2B purchasing cannot avoid it forever. The expectations of procurement’s internal customers are driven (even if subconsciously) by the eCommerce experiences they have as individual consumers. Corporate procurement leaders can expect these expectations to be applied to the UX of our technology, the shopping experience, and the potential alignment barriers created by procurement’s well-intentioned efforts to ‘manage demand’ and ‘ensure compliance’.

LIVE WEBINAR |Becoming Client Centered – Putting Stakeholders at the Heart of your Procurement Activity

CIPS Knowledge partner Jaggear will discuss how although the average procurement practitioner today is more conscious of the value of their influencing skills, these abilities still lag behind technical procurement skills, and with stakeholders (procurement’s ‘clients’) expecting more from the function, there are opportunities to gain respect and recognition for those that can deliver a truly excellent client experience.

David Atkinson, Managing Director of consultants Four Pillars, will guide those looking to dramatically improve their stakeholder engagement practice, and cement their status as trusted advisor.

Key Topics of the Webinar:

  • A 7-step model for engaging stakeholder ‘clients’ – from ‘securing access’ to ‘making a good withdrawal’.
  • Diagnosing stakeholders’ readiness to be challenged (and be engaged by) procurement.
  • How to increase stakeholders’ readiness to work collaboratively with procurement.
  • Co-developing a joint improvement strategy that establishes procurement expertise as a key component of the stakeholder’s success.
