SAP Ariba to transform procurement

Written by Mark Evans

SAP Ariba has announced a partnership with CA Technologies to transform the company’s corporate procurement for end users in 35 countries.

Utilising SAP Ariba’s cloud-based applications and business network, the company has created a simplified and unified process for managing purchases from end to end, making several advances including cutting the PO cycle times from six days to 2.5 days.

“The fact that the solution is integrated from end to end, was a key differentiator,” said Stan Brown, vice president, global procurement, CA. “We knew that to achieve our goals, we needed a single platform from which we could manage all of our spend in a simple, intuitive way.”
