Source-to-Pay (S2P)

End-to-end solution suites that manage integrated procurement/payment processes spanning spend/supply analysis, sourcing, contract management, supplier management and transactional procure-to-pay (P2P).

Why selecting the right S2P Technology can be difficult

Internal roadblocks

CIOs favoring ERP-centric S2P suites often clash with CPOs looking for balanced architectures with specialized vendors (and partners), resulting in poor decisions, alignment and joint value to the business.

Noise & opinions

Navigating overwhelming ‘vendor noise,’ non-objective counsel and high-level analyst reports that create delay (as do approaches ONLY considering peer networking) and blindness to viable market choices.

Been there, done that

Avoiding selection projects that end up with the same shortlisted players, but are ‘sub-optimized’ at best (or scrapped at worst) because of missing intelligence on granular vendor/product capabilities (e.g., major data model and platform-level gaps), ROI business case realities, vendor risks and commercial ‘gotchas.’
