    Discovery, Do you have experience of finding suppliers in Europe?

    laurae Newbie

      I'm in a process of finding suppliers for hardware in Europe, LA and Asia. I posted it in Dicovery and most part of the suppliers are based in the US. I would like to kno how easy is to get feedback from Europe based suppliers.

          Hi Laura,


          Thanks for posting your buying needs on Ariba Discovery. There are over 700,000 suppliers  on Ariba Discovery, and a large portion of them are outside of the United States. The number of responses you will get to your posting depends on a couple of factors, such as the items or countries you're looking for. Sometimes, it's easier to find matching suppliers if you don't expect a single supplier to cover all territories or products. That way, you might be able to find multiple suppliers who can cover part of what you're looking for.


          Here's a case study that covers how US-based Abercrombie & Fitch discovered Germany-based EASI on Ariba Discovery: http://exchange.ariba.com/docs/DOC-1967 . And this one gives you more insights on how Jotun Paints (a Norwegian company) discovered packaging suppliers for its UK business: http://exchange.ariba.com/docs/DOC-2312
