During Ariba Live in Rome, there was an interesting presentation from SSAB ‘E-Procurement: From Dream to Delivery for Buyers and Suppliers’.
Moving to fully paperless, compliant, green processes is easy in concept, but offers many challenges in execution. Once the internal barriers and blocks are removed, there still is the dependency on suppliers to make the entire transaction a reality. While many suppliers may conceptually support such initiatives, they often don’t understand the reality that they will face.
In this insightful session SSAB is presenting the journey, initiatives and pitfalls they have faced, and how their supplier management and coordination has become a lynchpin to continued success.
