Say goodbye to maverick spending.
Containing costs is one of the main priorities of procurement professionals. Automated P2P solutions, like e-purchasing, help to rein in maverick spending by providing visiblity on spend from start to finish, having purchases follow a predefined approval workflow and using pre-approved suppliers.
Esker is a cash-saver for those in or around procurement functions thanks to:
- Online purchase requisition and order forms — no more filling and delivering forms by hand for approval.
- Standardised approval workflow — purchase requisitions are auto-routed to the correct approvers with oversight and collaboration throughout.
- Pre-approved POs — AP staff no longer have to chase payment approvals to pay invoices on time and more early payment discounts can be captured.
Shore up the finance–procurement relationship.
Another priority of procurement professionals is increasing collaboration, both internally between departments and externally with suppliers. Automation helps to tighten the relationship between finance and procurement through beneficial workflow functions.
For example, all non-PO invoices can be automatically converted to PO-like invoices, allowing both purchasing and AP teams to save time and speed up financial closings. Additionally, Esker’s Purchasing solution offers a supplier self-service portal that optimises buyer–seller interactions in the P2P process.
