When we talk to many of our customers what we find is that the procurement organization is hearing a lot of negativity from their suppliers and they simply dump it off on management, etc., without rectifying the issue.
The core issue is -- your company is moving forward with your eCommerce program and compliance around eCommerce readiness by your suppliers will need to become more stringent over time. You know this will cut costs on both sides and the Ariba network is uniquely positioned to help you cut those costs and drive your revenue.
A strong Compliance Policy will result in more suppliers transacting electronically!
Do you currently have an eCommerce Compliance Program?
A successful program should have the following:
- The foundation for Collaborative Commerce communication is the Compliance Policy
- The Compliance Policy has a direct effect on the effectiveness of supplier enablement efforts
- All internal buyer stakeholders should be aware of and able to communicate the Compliance Policy
