Procure to pay efficiency: Managing the complexities of “from order management to payment” in order to lean out the process, increase automation and collaborate to reduce waiting times and wastes. In this age of technology, transactions should be easy. Most industries can get an order placed and a shipment tracked in real time. This rarely, exists in healthcare. Our industry continues to create waste and frustration, and it’s a huge pain point while dealing with large customers who transact everyday with manufacturers and suppliers. How can we fix this?
