think’s intuitive, secure and scalable P2P platform allows Australian businesses to automate their procurement processes on everyday purchases, with full control and visibility across the entire purchasing life-cycle. Through consolidation of ordering, workflow authorisation, receipting, invoicing and supplier payments businesses gain indirect cost savings. A single platform provides full visibility, workflow controls and real-time insights on their everyday spend, allowing businesses to further learn and adjust their indirect spend behaviours.

Once businesses have completed their ordering and payment of everyday purchases across multiple product categories and suppliers, it is essential to integrate think’s P2P platform with their Accounts Payable team to dramatically reduce the volume of paperwork and inefficiencies. think supports its customers with the integration into their accounting system and is currently developing standard API’s to integrate with Xero, MYOB and QuickBooks.
