During the first half of 2017, Purchase to Pay Network (PPN), in association with SAP Ariba, conducted a survey to investigate challenges and opportunities in the areas of accounts payable and procure-to-pay practices and processes. This report is derived from a January – June 2017 study incorporating the online results of 100 senior influencers and decision makers involved with accounts payable (AP), with many holding responsibility across purchase-to-pay (P2P).
The results are revealing. PPN found that among organizations surveyed:
- 29% work in a largely automated environment
- 28% utilize e-invoicing
- 29% measure their manual processing against their e-invoicing
- 40% do not or cannot calculate cost per invoice
There's more in this report that can help your organization explore the key areas that are directly affecting P2P professionals across the UK and to see how they might change in the year ahead.
