Source to Pay Cycle

eProcurement is a catch-all word that means different things to different people. Here at @UK PLC®, we use it to define the entire s2p process from Source to payment.

@UK Source 2 Pay

@UK PLC® aims to join up all the elements of s2p(Source to pay) into a a straightforward linked up process.

The result is significant savings to both buyers and suppliers through an easy to use efficient process.

Sourcing has the following stages

  • Spend Analysis - SpendInsight

  • Demand Management

  • Sourcing Strategy - e2class/GreenInsight

  • Supplier Qualification - @Directory

  • Contract Negotiation - @Tenders and @Auctions

  • Contract management - @Contracts, @Purchase2Pay, @Marketplace

  • Identify need @Marketplace, @Source, e2class
