This best-selling food manufacturing brand engaged ScottMadden to help develop and integrate an end-to-end procure-to-pay (P2P) model. Prior to this engagement, the company’s procurement and accounts payable processes were managed by two separate internal organizations and suffered from decreased efficiency and low stakeholder satisfaction. ScottMadden was asked to design a tiered service delivery model that would take advantage of cost savings and process efficiencies.

  • Collaborated with company stakeholders to design a new P2P delivery model, evaluate supporting technologies, determine steps for execution, and identify change implications
  • Provided a thoroughly documented analysis of the costs and benefits associated with the projected performance of the new model


  • Identified improvement opportunities in four key P2P areas: price reduction, compliance, invoice errors, and dynamic discounting
  • Expected internal rate of return for project of more than 200% and a payback period of two years
