PROCURE-TO-PAY OUTSOURCING

Long purchase cycles, delayed payments and poor cash flow visibility are all telltale signs of sluggish procure-to-pay (P2P) processes that need an immediate overhaul.

With streamlined procure-to-pay processes, procurement organizations can not only reduce paperwork and cut down cycle times, but also increase spend under management, boost compliance, reduce maverick spend and improve the overall purchasing experience — all this while delivering greater time and cost savings.

Revitalizing Your P2P Process

Our procure-to-pay services are designed to deliver breakthrough improvements in year-on-year savings, empower procurement teams to do more with their time, and drastically improve return on operating costs.

Our end-to-end procure-to-pay outsourcing services help you drive greater efficiency across all your P2P processes — from the point of order to the point of fulfillment and payment. We leverage cutting-edge transaction processing capabilities, state-of-the-art procurement software, and experience of optimizing procurement operations for Fortune 500 and Global 2000 enterprises worldwide to deliver value beyond savings.

PROCUREMENT SUPPORT SERVICES

Increased demand from internal customers is one very tangible indicator of procurement’s growing importance to the enterprise. On the other hand, this increased demand — if not resourced adequately — can overwhelm already lean internal teams, actually eroding their overall impact.

Support services from EP Tech are designed to help keep enterprise procurement teams firing on all cylinders, enabling your group to meet its targets, expand its reach and keep pace with rising expectations.

That’s why enterprise procurement teams at Fortune 500 and Global 2000 companies across Europe, the United Kingdom and the Americas ask EP Tech to support them across a wide range of procurement activities.

CATEGORY MANAGEMENT SERVICES

As procurement continues to evolve from a tactical to a strategic enterprise function, CPOs and other senior procurement leaders are being evaluated on their team’s strategic contributions to the success of the business.

Cost control and take-out remain as prime objectives, but procurement’s mission is increasingly seen as impacting both the top and bottom lines, with a direct connection to enterprise growth and competitiveness. How can you start meeting these intensified expectations — delivering impressive savings, yes, but also creating value that indicates progress toward organizational maturity?

Our category management services not only help procurement teams in market-leading enterprises worldwide save more money, but also contribute value in ways that include improving supplier performance, mitigating supply risks, and driving innovation and continuous improvement.

The Power of Proactive

Dependable suppliers, good contractual terms — that’s the general “punch list.”

Changing business needs, compliance gaps and below-par supplier performance can all erode identified savings.

Proactive management is integral to ensure that suppliers and contracts deliver real savings and value. That’s the EP Tech approach to category management consulting. It gets you:

Real-time market intelligence on suppliers and commodities
Best-practice category and industry methodologies
Precise category planning, encompassing forecasting and budgeting
Supplier performance tracking
Improved compliance
Proactive contract reviews and renewals
Decreased off-contract (maverick) purchasing and greater spend under management
Live savings measurement and tracking – identified vs. realized
Constant annual cost reductions
