Blockchain for Procure to Pay - Fastened Monitoring and Disbursement
Procure-to-Pay (PTP) is a multi-step process that connects a client with one or more service/product providers.
Furthermore, it involves identification and authentication of stakeholders, budgeting, invoicing, and payment settlement.
Challenges in the Traditional PTP Process
Procure-to-pay is a complex business processes, spanning multiple systems and operations. It is vulnerable to fraud, money laundering, and process inefficiencies. Being a critical business process involving huge cash flows, it has to address various challenges in terms of operational processes, transactions, and visibility across the supply chain. The current procure-to-pay process is beset with inefficiencies, such as manual and time-consuming functions, duplicate data, and more issues in reconciliation.
Given below are the common PTP challenges that impair the ability
to effectively execute and manage the key activities.
- Reduced Accuracy A manual, paper-based data entry process escalates the risk of errors
- Lack of Visibility Delayed exchange and accessibility of information across the supply chain
- Forged Invoicing Inexistence of centralized history of transactions
- Delayed Transactions Manual routing and sign-off processes decelerate the payments
- High Costs per Invoice Resolution of human errors increases the cost per invoice

The exchange of invoices using the blockchain technology enables shared access to the database and eliminates the need for invoice scanning. The authorized parties can review transactions without reconciliation.
Complete transparency and real-time access to the shared database eliminates the need for reconciliations. This can potentially transform the business practices, like the standard D+30 days settlement time.
Greater Trust among Stakeholders
The shared public IDs, fair ratings assigned to market players based on the quality of products, reliability in delivering, and timely payment of invoices, and transaction history bring trust and transparency to the PTP process.
Reduced Money Laundering Risk
With real-time access to permanently retaining, tamper-free historical information about payments, it becomes easier to identify suspicious transactions and alleviate the risk of money laundering.
