A Procure to Pay (P2P) platform enables organizations to manage and streamline end-to-end procurement lifecycle processes, from requisitioning, purchasing, payment processing, and accounting for goods and services. A P2P system integrates with various cross-functional departments, including purchase, inventory, account payable, finance and others to provide a single source of truth and allow organizations to track end-to-end processes for improving operational efficiency, as well as supplier communication, and relationship management.
There is a growing focus on transforming manual processes to digital, automating P2P processes (such as requesting, purchasing, invoicing, and more), and providing a collaborative environment for supplier compliance validation and approvals, many organizations are increasingly investing in emerging technologies such as AI/ML, blockchain, NLP, and RPA. Many P2P vendors are focusing on addressing customer needs by offering various configurable workflow processes for approval workflow, invoice matching workflow, supplier & employee review workflow, and others. Vendors are also offering robust integration capabilities to provide real-time visibility into spend and procurement activities. Organizations are looking at P2P solutions that offer an AI-based guided buying user experience that will enable them to select the right solution or product and simplify the decision-making process through an intuitive interface.
