From purchase to payment

Control your flows (PtoP) from purchase to payment.

The flow from purchase to payment (PtoP) can be confusing, even for the most experienced companies, as it encompasses different families of activities, mainly supplies and purchasing, on the one hand, and finance on the other.

The challenge for companies is to understand the flow of PtoP in its entirety to:

  • Guarantee implementation of the purchasing policy
  • Control the commitments of the Finance Department.
  • Increase the fluidity of the payments to suppliers and guarantee them
  • Streamline the processes
  • Improve the quality of data
  • Increase productivity
  • Improve the quality of the service to internal customers and suppliers
  • Support change
