What we can offer you
Procure-to-Pay (P2P) is the process of obtaining products or services and making payment for them. It’s an essential life-cycle process for every company, requiring mastery of cash flow and vendor relationships to efficiently and effectively manage. A successful P2P process focuses on:
- Supply management
- Vendor selection
- Purchase order creation
- Receiving and record-keeping
- Invoice reconciliation
- Accounts payable
CKH Group assists clients in establishing a sound P2P model, from sourcing to invoicing, payments to proper accounting. We streamline purchasing with digital technologies to gain visibility, preserve transparency and control over-spending, while implementing self-service procurement to minimize off-contract spending. Some of the unique areas of improvement we target include:
- Supplier relationships, contract terms and tax rates
- Automated, electronic capture of all relevant transactions
- Reduction of errors, fraud and risk through process visibility
- Compliance of pre-agreed pricing and budget limits
Through a robust, accountable P2P process, we’ll help you control cash flow, mitigate accounting errors and fraud, and foster healthy vendor partnerships.
Your business needs consistent, reliable cash flow to operate. Implementation of a flexible order-to-cash process is paramount, so you’re receiving and processing sales orders for goods or services, including payment, in a timely and accurate manner. The order-to-cash process breaks down into a more granular scope, including:
- Customer presence
- Order entry
- Order fulfillment
- Customer payments
- Cash application
CKH Group establishes order-to-cash processes for our clients that promote healthy cash flow and current record-keeping. We focus on the core entry, fulfillment, billing and payment facets of the process, centralizing and integrating invoicing/payments, transitioning to automated invoicing and creating real-time reporting mechanisms to settle delinquent accounts. Our abilities also include implementation of web portals for vendors, making invoice accessing and payments easier.

Travel and Expense (T/E) filings for medium-to-large organizations may cause complications for accounting departments. Processing T/E filings, coding them to the correct cost center and ensuring accounting compliance can be difficult. Without fundamental processes and formally-outlined terms for T/E management, your business could be at risk for tax liabilities.
CKH Group ensures a T/E filing process that encourages strict compliance, so your expenses are handled the right way, every time. We focus on establishing T/E criteria to assist your business in a variety of ways:
- Achieve more visibility and control over the expensing process
- Review and reconcile all purchase card and expense transactions
- Maintain policy control for travel and expense transactions
- Remove the hassle of individual employee reconciliation
Our formalized approach to process development includes eliminating ambiguities, reconciling misstated or misrepresented expenses, delineating clear expense guidelines and creating SOPs for proper T/E filing. We seek to help your accounting department dissuade reckless spending, prevent fraudulent expense claims and tighten the budget on unverified purchases.
We strive to simplify the way your business handles T/E purchases and how you processes these filings. Contact our team today and let us help you.
