Many mid-market companies are interested in supply chain improvements, realizing that the supply chain is crucial to success of the business, but have concerns about the potential cost or disruption of implementing an automated P2P process. Many of these concerns are centered around having to spend a lot of time and money on switching over processes that have suited their needs in the past.
Something that leadership should consider, however, is that pushing for automation can present companies with many benefits. Moving from manual to automated supply chain processes increases P2P efficiency and also gives companies the ability to measure and improve supplier performance, something that is difficult to do manually.
TAKE Supply Chain Solution Consulting Director David Riffel discusses the realities of today’s lower costs and the benefits, both expected and unexpected, that can be achieved by moving to automation.
