Procure to Pay (P2P) ERP
Procure to Pay (P2P) ERP Efficient, autonomous, and fast P2P cycle management and tracking system
Every retailer, manufacturer or service provider has a well-defined procurement plan where goods and services are anticipated with respect to cost. The time of delivery is also decided so that the material arrives only when needed and not before. This is done to minimize the cost of storage and maintenance.
Procurement Lifecycle

The challenge

Moreover, businesses also have to deal with low-cost and regularly-used material that should be scheduled for auto-ordering whenever they reach the point of depletion. In addition, it is also important to ensure that businesses never overstock or become under-stock of that particular material. Besides, other material might need Purchase Requisition (PR) and management approval to initiate the process.

Considering how complicated the process of P2P is, various businesses are looking for an efficient ERP system that integrates and automates all the major stages of the P2P process. There is a need for end-to-end ERP suite that can include modules for order management, inventory management, and financial accounting. And, this is where our P2P ERP helps.

How our Procure to Pay (P2P) ERP helps?

PBOPlus believes in developing solutions that can value our customers with respect to cost, time, and quality. With extensive research and analysis, our consultants and developers have thoughtfully designed P2P ERP to help in streamlining the process with 100% visibility at every step.

Our ERP identifies the material needs based on JIT approach

Following the Just-In-Time (JIT) approach, our ERP plans the purchasing of materials (raw materials, machinery, spare parts, etc.) to take place only when the requirement arises and not before. This helps in eliminating the cost related to storage and maintenance of the materials which are not required at the moment.

Our ERP addresses maverick buying and other important issues

Our ERP solution also addresses off-contract and maverick buying that are the important issues afflicting large as well as small manufacturing businesses. Maverick buying occurs when an employee of the organization buys goods, materials or spare parts required for a project without any planning and authorization.

We want to eliminate all the bottlenecks in the process of P2P and maximize your buying power.

How our P2P ERP is different from other software?

Unlike the other open source solutions, our ERP identifies and categorizes the materials to be purchased based on the urgency of the requirement. The categories are as follows:

  • Random Unplanned (RM): All the ad hoc, unplanned, and urgent materials
  • Planned Static (PS): Unavoidable and day-to-day required materials
  • Planned Dynamic (PD): Material recurring over a stipulated interim

For Random Unplanned (RM) and Planned Dynamic (PD) materials, the Purchase Requisition (PR) notification is sent to the senior authorities in the organization for approval. The authorized body approves the PR based on the previous record and purchase history. For Planned Static (PS), our system automatically generates PR as the minimum stock value is fixed. So, whenever any PS material reaches the threshold, the system automatically generates the request for the order.

Why do you need our Procure to Pay (P2P) ERP?

According to our experts, more than 75% of organizations are still using open source software to manage their Procure to Pay (P2P) cycle. Besides, most of them are also using archaic procurement software integrated with their accounting software. This is similar to using a hammer to crack a nut. Although it ensures the work done, it is certainly not the right tool.

Misapplications of similar kinds as cited above can stir the problem further as the work done will not be truly productive. It can damage your bottom line and your chances to deliver desired goods and services on time to your customers.

Moreover, ad-hoc decisions taken by the senior management can often lead to an increase in the cost of procurement. Therefore, in order to gain a competitive edge, there is a need to let go of the traditional methods and adopt new and right procurement methods based on the latest technology.

Getting on time goods/services at a reasonable price following each step of the Procure to Pay (P2P) process is the need of the hour.

For your Procure to Pay (P2P) to be truly successful, it should enable buyers to get ‘what they want’ and exactly ‘when they want it’. The process should carry out on a seamless channel that connects requisitions to purchasing and payables and make buying as simple as possible. And, our Procure to Pay (P2P) ERP promises more than this.

Modules of Procure to Pay (P2P) ERP

Our ERP solution gives comprehensive Procure to Pay (P2P) functionality with seamless user experience. It can also be customized as per your business requirements and demands.

Requisition: Identifies the need for the material and creates the PR

As soon as the order for purchase is placed, this module identifies and categorizes the materials which are to be purchased as Random Unplanned, Planned Static, and Planned Dynamic. It also defines and develops the scope of the procurement plan, procedure, estimates, and budget.

Our ERP automatically creates Purchase Requisition (PR) of the material with respect to department, cost, and quantity required. It keeps track of the available budget and the used budget for the particular department to raise the PR. Next, the PR is sent to the manager for approval. The order is then processed based on the previous purchase record. All of this happens on a single module, where tracking of each activity is easy and traceable.

Purchase: Conducts vendor research and creates vendor quotations

After the PR is sent to the Purchase Department, this module sends a notification to the designated personnel to conduct vendor research. Our ERP consolidates the list of vendors with respect to a variety of products that fall under utilization or compliance of your organization. Our ERP makes it easy for the purchase department to filter and rank the vendors on the basis of cost, quality, payment terms, and past experience. The list with best quotations is then forwarded for the selection process to get approval from the purchase head.

Approval: Selects the vendor and creates the PO

The purchase head of the organization gets a notification to approve the order on the basis of cost, payment terms, and urgency of the material. The purchase head selects the best quotations that are cost-saving and creates the Purchase Order (PO). It is quick and easy to send the PO to the respective vendor and take follow-ups to ensure order fulfillment. Our ERP also tracks and record every step that gets matured to the final stage of Procure to Pay (P2P).

Gate Entry: Performs Quality Check (QC) and sends the material to the store

When the material reaches the gate, the ERP system will generate an entry form that needs to be filled with accurate date, time, and type of material received. The received material then undergoes Quality Check (QC). After a successful QC, the material is then sent to the store. Our ERP predefines the location of the material in the store. You can anytime view and track your material.

Request Store: Provides material to the user who generated the PR

The received material is then allocated from the store to the respective user upon a request. Through ERP, it is easy to send a request to the store in order to receive the material as soon as it reaches the organization.

Our ERP solution is easy to customize and build with user-friendly features

We can add, edit, or modify all the features of the ERP to suit your business needs. To know more about our ERP, reach us anytime and talk to our experts.
