Stage Stores had been using a manual and lengthy supplier identification process which made it difficult to qualify vendors and manage RFPs. With Ariba Discovery, they are able to quickly identify qualified suppliers, apply powerful search capabilities, and improve efficiency via paperless communication through Ariba technology.
