An Introduction About Procure To Pay Cycle

             Purchase-to-pay, often abbreviated to P2P and also called req to cheque, refers to the business processes that cover activities of requesting (requisitioning), purchasing, receiving, paying for and accounting for goods and services.

          Purchase-to-pay systems automate the full purchase-to-payment process, connecting procurement and invoicing operations through an intertwined business flow that automates the process from identification of a need, planning and budgeting, through to procurement and payment.

              Procure-to-pay is a term used in the software industry to designate a specific subdivision of the Procurement process.

              Procure-to-pay systems are designed to provide organizations with control and visibility over the entire life-cycle of a transaction – from the way an item is ordered to the way that the final invoice is processed – providing full insight into cash-flow and financial commitments. 

          Most of the companies using these systems look for a Centralization of their procurement department, or to set up a Shared Services organization for the same purpose.
