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.

ON DEMAND WEBINAR | Blockchain, Internet of Things, Tokenization, and More

ON DEMAND WEBINAR | Procurement Operation Model: Moving into the Next Generation

What do operating systems and procurement have in common? If you think about it in a broader context, operating systems make something work. Similarly, eProcurement is a system that enables users to deliver and maximize value—it doesn’t actually do the work, but it gives you a platform to get things done.

In our JAGGAER InsideSpend Thought leadership Series, we spoke with Alpar Kamber, EVP of Denali, a WNS company, who shared insights on how to leverage the procurement operating model to generate the greatest value for the department and the company as a whole. Should you integrate all your procurement functions for a more seamless operation? Which industries are ahead of the eProcurement curve and why? What are the things you can start doing right now to get your eProcurement system to start creating more value? Alpar answers these questions and more.

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.

Case studies

Understand how other organisations use eSourcing & eProcurement Technology

Case Study:  Germany | Deutsche Post DHL

DPDHL's Challenge: To build one integrated SaaS platform to support all eProcurement activity across a global enterprise, replacing fragmented toolsets and ironing out redundant activity.

While the world of procurement IT has some degree of process automation in place; automation as it relates to strategic sourcing has yet to follow suit. The problem lies in a series of scattered, siloed solutions that are not synced-up in one, joined-up approach.

Case Study: Germany | Deutsche Post DHL

Case Study:  Italy | McDonald’s

Following McDonald’s “global” strategy, more than 70% of the brand’s agro-food supplies are sourced locally. They needed to optimise their procurement process and make the move to managing the entire relationship online – from selection to negotiation.

The consumer goods market is a crowded place. While your product might be amazing, if you’re not innovating to optimize resources and processes to improve time-to-market, your new product or menu item may never reach the attention of consumers.

Case Study:  Germany | Rolls-Royce

Rolls-Royce Power Systems had a vision of a 360° view of each supplier without having to use several systems. The company wants clear supplier data and purchase globally at the same prices while taking into account local price components. Every change in price will be available to buyers in one place in real time, without having to enter it several times.
