The operations of requesting (requisitioning), acquiring, receiving, paying for, and accounting for products and services are included in the business processes that are referred to as "Req-to-Check" procedures. It is also known as procure-to-pay. It is a component of a wider process known as procurement management and is comprised of four essential steps: selection of goods and services, enforcement of compliance and order, receipt and reconciliation of products, and invoicing and payment of goods.
The req-to-check cycle refers to the repeated consecutive phases of the end-to-end purchasing process.
The req-to-check process encompasses three major components of the procurement entire life cycle: requisitioning, buying, and payments.
The procure-to-pay cycle is not intended to speed up the supplier's online payments because quicker clearing bills impact the timing of the company's money flow and prohibits them from hanging on to their cash as long as feasible.
