Why Automate Procure-to-Pay?

Institutions throughout the University of Wisconsin System have numerous automated and paper-based processes that do not communicate with each other — making purchasing complex and inefficient. By streamlining business processes and supporting them with an integrated, cloud-based platform, P2P will improve the user experience for all UW staff by:

  • Creating greater visibility into order and vendor payment status
  • Automating processes and electronic workflows
  • Speeding up processing time
  • Allowing users to complete tasks within a single system
  • Adding more e-catalog suppliers and simplifying the process
