Procurement Digitalization with SAP Ariba
Dear Valued Partners,
As you may know, Solvay has engaged in a broad transformation and digitalization of its Source to Pay processes in order to optimize our collaboration with our suppliers. In this context, we are pleased to announce the deployment of our SAP Ariba® platform. This new platform will be used to exchange electronic purchase orders and invoices with our suppliers.
The new platform is live since Q1 2019. By the end of the year, you will be contacted to join this new way of working with Solvay. Once you have joined, all Solvay purchase orders will be sent to you via SAP Ariba®. At that time, all invoices will also have to be sent to us via this same platform.
Once you are signed up and active on the Ariba platform and we have confirmed communications in both directions, paper and PDF invoices will no longer be accepted.
Benefits for our suppliers :
- Increasing speed in sending/receiving orders and more efficient tracking.
- Standardized and optimized communication between Solvay and our suppliers.
- Reduced invoice processing time.
- Increased transparency and control over invoices and process.
- Reduced cost of treatment - use of the platform to conduct business with Solvay is free of charge.
