Tips from the experts: faster implementation with right mindset
Automation is becoming a game changer in financial management and we see an increasing number of companies interested in making their procure-to-pay (P2P) processes more efficient. As with all investments and changes there are some uncertainties that companies need to address when starting a P2P transformation.
It can be challenging to draft the goals and the scope for a project and to get a realistic picture of the size of the investment without having a thorough understanding of the solutions that are available on the market. Optimal solution would be to study all the options out there and then to choose the best, but this approach is way too time consuming. So what to do in order to eliminate the uncertainties?

Having the right mindset
But according our experts it all boils down to one simple thing: Having the right mindset! Here are some practical tips for a successful IT implementation project.
- A P2P implementation doesn’t have to be a large and complex IT project. As a starting point, consider it as a regular project. You can always make changes and adjust the solution along the way. This way, the implementation runs smoother, and the time-span of a project can often be cut from months to only weeks.
- Make sure that the project team is informed well. It is important that everyone involved in the project contributes and knows the deadlines right from the beginning.
- Prepare well, and dare to challenge your current way of working. Companies often tend to tweak the solution to fit the old ways of working, rather than the other way around.
