Frequently Asked Questions

What is the procure-to-pay (P2P) process?

The P2P process encompasses all the steps of the purchasing process. Typically, the process starts with a request. After the purchase request has been approved, a purchase order will be generated and sent to the supplier, who will then deliver the product the organization is buying as well as an invoice. If the organization is satisfied that the product and the invoice align, they will approve and pay the invoice. The final, but very important step, is to accurately record the details of the transaction.

What are the key stages of the procure-to-pay process?

Procurement is a complex process, but it may help to think of it in two stages. The first stage involves raising a request and securing the necessary approvals. The second stage involves receiving the goods, matching POs, invoices, and receipts, paying the final bill, and maintaining compliant documentation and audit trails.

Who is involved in the procure-to-pay process?

A typical procure-to-pay process involves the requester, a procurement team, various approvers like finance, IT, security, or legal teams, and finally the accounts payable team, who processes and pays the supplier’s invoice.

What does procure-to-pay software do?

Procure-to-pay software optimizes the entire purchasing process from end to end by bringing all the steps into one user-friendly interface. It’s the fastest, easiest way to route a request through the necessary stages, purchase the items, and complete the payment process.
