Procure-to-pay, sometimes referred to as P2P, is a term used in the software industry to designate a specific subdivision of the procurement process. The procure-to-pay systems enable the integration of the purchasing department with the accounts payable department.
The term is derived from the ordered sequence of procurement and financial processes, starting with the first steps of procuring a good or service to the final steps involved in paying for it.
To take full advantage of a procure-to-pay system, vendor self-service and process automation should be the focal point.
