When embarking on a Source to Pay transformation journey we always recommend having a Source to Pay blueprint.
The success of Source to Pay and Purchase to Pay projects, deeply depend on your organisation having:
The best way to achieve this is to build and invest in a Source to Pay Blueprint.
What is a Solution Blueprint?
A solution blueprint enables your organisation to frame your procurement vision and the purpose for your project, so your organisation can build an effective and complete RFP in preparation for the implementation.
What should a Solution Blueprint provide?
A Source to Pay blueprint should focus on technology but may include the impacts the procurement technology has on the organisation’s structure, function, processes, etc.
Over the years our procurement experts had encountered numerous situations where having a solution blueprint helped immensely the overall Source to Pay implementation project. Our client successfully used the Source to Pay blueprint to identify where difficult process changes would need to be implemented. These were dealt with at a steering group level pre-project so when the implementation started the focus was fully on the design, saving weeks of workshops and lengthy decision making. Also, preparing in advance for things like understanding how the delegation of authority can be mapped to the current ways or aligning commodity structure saves time and money.
