The CFO’s Ultimate Benchmarking Guide to the P2P Process by CFO.com

Raise Your P2P Performance to Peak Efficiency

Successful CFOs understand that accounts payable and procurement must work in sync in order to realize the greatest benefits, including increased savings, better efficiency, and improved relationships with vendors. A new Corcentric-sponsored, CFO white paper, “The CFO’s Ultimate Benchmarking Guide to the P2P Process,” recommends ways to measure your process improvement each step along the P2P continuum.

  • Supplier consolidation – Procurement should try to reduce the vendor pool as much as possible while maintaining quality.
  • Time to process invoices – Best-in-class companies take an average of 3.9 days to process an invoice through automation vs. 17.1 days for manual processing,
  • Number of on-time payments – Late payments translate into lost early payment discounts. Submitting payments electronically speeds up payment time and reduces cost vs. paper checks.
