After collaborating with various industry analysts and PayStream Advisors’, we determined a need for a tool that helps procurement professionals identify cost saving opportunities to increase efficiency, drive innovation and build a robust Procure-to-Pay platform to support growth.

Toward that end, we engaged PayStream Advisors to leverage their comprehensive market research data to create the calculator below. It’s designed to provide a quick estimate of those costs. Specifically, cost per purchase order (CPPO) and cost per invoice (CPI).
