Digital Collaboration tools – SAP Ariba

At Essity we have decided to further digitalize our business interactions with our suppliers. As part of this we are using a solution from the provider SAP Ariba. This solution will help us handle the end-to-end “Source to Order” process including Supplier-, Sourcing-, Contract-, and Purchase Order Management all in one place.

All new supplier to Essity will complete a verification process that includes, for example, compliance to our Global Supplier Standards. For some supplier’s further qualification is required. 

Participation in tenders (RFI and RFQ) as well as registration and qualification with Essity will be free of charge for all the suppliers.
