Improving the procure-to-pay process can be challenging due to the fact that it spans different business units.

The procure-to-pay process is one that is critical to the business. Because the business units involved often operate as separate teams, there can be confusion regarding each unit’s roles and responsibilities. To address this, organizations should consider a change in process ownership.
