FourPL Implements P2P and SIM with Accelerated Rollout to National Supplier Base

“One of the key success factors when implementing a new Procure to Pay (P2P) transformation is the need to connect electronically with suppliers and to deploy quickly. Numbers matter. The more suppliers you enable, the more transactions you can process and more paper you can eliminate.”

Keysi Maliwat

BACKGROUND

With increasing volume of the transactions and accumulation of data, our Customer was faced with a number of challenges with the current manual processes and disconnected systems, which could impact the company’s profitability, compliance, and operational efficiency. The Australian team recognised the importance of having an integrated P2P solution to enhance the company’s capabilities to establish financial risk controls and gain efficiencies. This initiative commenced focusing on the Australia local business and its requirements.

 

THE PROJECT

Coupa P2P & Coupa Supplier Information Management (SIM) modules were selected and implemented to manage the end-to- end P2P process encompassing Vendor Management, Purchase Requisitions, PO creation, Goods Receipting, Invoice Processing, Payment Processing and Reporting.
