Procurement

SAP Ariba - our new Source to Settle management platform

In October 2020 we’ll switch to our procurement platform to SAP Ariba. This is a digital Source to Settle process which will allow you to manage your procurement activities online.

We’ll start with our upstream modules such as Sourcing, followed by our downstream module – buying and invoicing – in early Summer 2021.
