S2P is the end-to-end process that encompasses all the activities between an organization and its suppliers. It starts with identifying the right suppliers for a need, negotiating terms and contracting with them to receive goods and/or services. The last phase of the process includes invoicing and payment to suppliers.
Source to pay includes strategic procurement activities such as spend analysis, sourcing, contract management and supplier management (which includes supplier information, risk and performance management) as well as downstream activities such as e-procurement, purchase orders, invoice automation and accounts payable and payment processes.
Businesses use the Source-to-Pay process to reduce costs, monitor and lower risk, improve innovation, strengthen supplier relationships and much more. Ivalua’s source-to-pay platform digitizes the complete process across all spend categories and all suppliers.
