What is P2P, R2R and Q2C

Whether you’re new to the financial operations space or just needed a little refresher, here are the different but critical processes that we know as P2P, R2R, and Q2C:

P2P Cycle

This process covers the supply management process from organizations that require procuring the goods and services to pay for them. The following steps are included in this process:

The opposite of P2P. The quote-to-cash process is one that covers the following steps:

  1. Product/Service Configuration
  2. Pricing
  3. Quote Creation/Negotiation
  4. Contract Lifecycle and Order Management
  5. Invoicing
  6. Payment Receipt

Quote-to-cash captures only the revenue generating cycle of organizations. This means that it includes the, quoting, and invoicing, but doesn’t include the prospecting customers, customer service, or any support beyond the initial payment.

  1. Appreciate the article on the common ERP processes and workflows. I am looking for a good work breakdown structure decomposition of all the processes. I thought I saw it in my Oracle ERP training class. Any chance you have a copy of such a WBS for these processes?
