When it comes to the procure-to-pay way of life, there is an already set agenda that does not need to be planned out or facilitated any differently than the way it has already been established. The difference between source-to-pay and procure-to-pay is that the procure-to-pay strategy is one that has already been established and has sources to purchase from. A source-to-pay process, on the other hand, has yet to be sourced and needs to have vendors established.

Understand that you do not need an entire procurement department to handle the buying and paying for company necessities if you have the help of a smart system that can do it better.
In order to get the very most out of every penny that the company spends it is important to invest in sources that are going to be reliable and provide quality products and services. How does the procurement department find the right sources?
