Our move to SAP Ariba will:

  • Simplify, automate and digitise the purchase-to-pay cycle in Shell
  • Allow us and our suppliers to transact electronically making the process simpler, more accurate, transparent, and efficient
  • Allow suppliers to attend online sourcing/tender events
  • Enable Shell employees to order from supplier-provided web catalogs

Supplier Collaboration

We are linking some of our Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems to the SAP Ariba Business Network. This will allow us to move to a business collaborating model; transacting electronically (e.g. Purchase Orders & Invoices) will soon be a standard part of doing business with Shell.

As well as a simplified, automated, and digitised purchase-to-pay cycle, Shell’s suppliers who move to the Ariba network will benefit from:

  • A more efficient, simpler and quicker pay cycle with less administrative tasks
  • Improved payment visibility and timing
  • Business growth opportunities via the Ariba Network

The below short video provides the suppliers' perspective; what it has meant to them to join the SAP Ariba Network to be able to transact electronically with Shell.
