Is your company set up on Ariba?

1. BHP Billiton Limited

BHP will expect all new suppliers to use the Ariba platform commencing in 2021. As a requirement of doing business with us all suppliers engaging with BHP will be onboarded to the Ariba Network, as part of their registration. 

SAP Ariba provides a simple, transparent and fast way to manage purchase orders, send invoices and to receive payment. This will streamline how we do business in the future.

2. Rio Tinto Limited

“Our preference is to buy local products and engage local services. In 2018, we spent $12.3 billion with more than 37,000 suppliers in more than 120 locations. In areas where the skills, goods and standards we need are not available, we invest in developing that capacity, and in turn, to establish and support local economic development.”

Rio Tinto moved to SAP’s Ariba Network in 2017 and are establishing Ariba Network as their primary transactional platform for purchase orders, as well as follow-on transactions like confirmation of purchase order receipt and submission of invoices.
