CWS-boco picks Ariba software to transform procurement

In their first phase, business networks were all about automating processes. Today, leading organizations are using them as a platform for innovation to drive competitive advantage.
 
Take CWS-boco. Like many of the companies gathered this week at Ariba LIVE Rome, the international provider of washroom hygiene solutions and textile services has signed on with Ariba, an SAP company. 
 
And it is using the Ariba Network and the cloud-based applications delivered on it to transform procurement into a state-of-the-art process that can deliver game changing results.
 
In order to effectively manage spend, you must be able to see it. With operations across Germany and seventeen other countries in Europe as well as China, such visibility was difficult for CWS-boco to gain.
 
“There was no standardization,” recalls Marcin Chramega, Head of International Procurement, CWS-boco. “And while many of the units thrived, we had little view into what they were doing. So we were unable to be strategic in managing either our spend or trading relationships.”
 
Rather than simply automate the procurement process, Chramega and his team went bigger. “We wanted to completely renew the function and put in place a system that would provide us with an integrated view into our spend and sourcing processes as well as our suppliers so that we could move from merely transacting business to driving strategic value for the company,” Chramega said.
 
Staying true to its innovative roots, CWS-boco turned to the cloud, recognizing it as a new model for business that would enable the company to achieve these goals – and more.
 
Using Ariba Sourcing and Ariba Spend Visibility, powered by SAP HANA, CWS-boco has been able to quickly identify opportunities for savings and ensure they reach the bottom line. And through the Ariba Network, it is able to discover, connect and collaborate with a global base of suppliers more efficiently and effectively than ever before.
 
“Networks have changed the very nature of business and engagement,” said Rachel Spasser, CMO, Ariba. “And in harnessing their connectivity and insights, companies like CWS-boco can not only find the right partners and optimize their spend and supply chain, but drive innovation across their operations and fundamentally reshape the way that business is done.”
 
Used by more than 1.5 million companies to transact over half a trillion in commerce on an annual basis, the Ariba Network is the world’s largest and most global business-to-business trading platform.
