Making a Case for Procurement Automation

Transitioning from Manual to Automated Procurement Processes

Many technology leaders in 2019 are emphasizing the pivotal role of Artificial Intelligence and machine learning in enhancing business operations. According to Deloitte, organizations leveraging AI are likely to gain a competitive edge. To fully capitalize on AI, businesses must automate their procurement processes. This shift towards automation can be daunting, especially when justifying the investment to decision-makers.

Advocating for Procurement Automation

To advocate for procurement automation, organizations need to quantify the potential savings and advantages of streamlining Procure-to-Pay (P2P) processes. By leveraging automation, businesses can reduce manual tasks significantly, leading to streamlined invoice processing and enhanced accuracy in the P2P cycle.

Calculating Savings with Automation

A crucial first step is calculating current procurement costs and potential savings. Transitioning from manual to automated systems can yield substantial cost reductions, sometimes up to 70%. PairSoft, in collaboration with Levvel Research, has developed the Procure-to-Pay Calculator to help organizations assess their current procurement costs and estimate the savings achievable through automation.

Demonstrating the ROI of Procurement Automation

Using the Procure-to-Pay Calculator, organizations can visualize their estimated costs per purchase order and invoice, and project potential savings. PairSoft’s solution offers benefits such as multi-company purchasing, project-based requisitions, and eliminating maverick spend. These features contribute to considerable time and cost savings, making a compelling case for automation.

Stakeholder Involvement and Building a Business Case

Engaging various stakeholders, including purchasing managers and CFOs, is crucial in building a robust business case for procurement automation. By involving key decision-makers and end-users, organizations can effectively communicate the financial, operational, and strategic benefits of implementing an automated procurement tool.
