Etihad Airways implements new SAP procurement solution

7/09/2015 by Sharon Shahzad


Etihad Airways’ Procurement and Supply Management (P&SM) department has implemented SAP’s cloud-based Ariba solutions in order to support its future expansion, the airline announced on Sunday.

The Sourcing and Supplier Information Management solutions will deliver state-of-the-art technology enabling the airline to automate and streamline its source-to-contract processes, and efficiently integrate new suppliers.

The new processes and capabilities will give Etihad Airways clear visibility into its spend and contracts, and provide up-to-date information on all supplier activity.

Other significant workflow improvements include a virtual tender board and contract approval procedures to speed up procurement decisions; automated purchase orders to reduce manual and paper-based activities; and access to global suppliers through the SAP Ariba portal.

Through a self-service portal, suppliers will be able to collaborate electronically and participate in online bidding for available opportunities at Etihad Airways and across its partner airlines. Invoices will be digitised to reduce errors and inefficiency, while improving controls and compliance. 

Adil Al Mulla, Etihad Airways’ vice president procurement and supply management, said: “SAP Ariba will support Etihad Airways’ extraordinary growth by more effectively tapping into the global business network and standardising our processes for purchasing goods and services. It will offer enormous value to our suppliers and our guests, while allowing us to control spending, collaborate with suppliers at the right time, and minimise risks.
