What is Purchase to Pay?

Purchase to pay, often called Procure to Pay or abbreviated as P2P, is a process that encompasses the steps a company takes from purchasing goods or services to making payment for them.
It starts with requisitioning items, progresses through purchasing and receiving them, and concludes with processing and paying the invoice. The P2P process aims to streamline procurement and payment workflows, enhance financial oversight, and improve efficiency and control over expenses.
