Ariba Inc announced that Abercrombie & Fitch has selected its offerings as the platform for a strategic sourcing initiative aimed at increasing competitive advantage and strategically reducing costs. Under the terms of a newly signed agreement, Abercrombie will leverage Ariba Sourcing On-Demand to streamline its sourcing and procurement process in order to generate greater business efficiencies that improve its bottom-line results.

In addition to targeting key areas of spend using Ariba Sourcing On-Demand, Abercrombie & Fitch will be employing this tool to better enable its Global Procurement Project Management process. Abercrombie will use Ariba Sourcing On-Demand to streamline and enhance its sourcing process and generate savings across a wide range of non-merchandise goods and services spend, including: store theming items, construction and owner-supplied materials, IT, print, human resources, and facilities.

A flexible, hosted solution that can be quickly and easily deployed, Ariba Sourcing On-Demand combines the technology, expertise and services needed to create effective markets for direct materials and indirect goods and services with best practice processes that companies can implement to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their operations.

“As the economy continues to tighten, the costs of many goods and services can't be controlled, but there are plenty of categories in which savings can be had,” said Kris Colby, Director Spend Management Services and Retail Sector Lead, Ariba. “In embracing our solutions, Abercrombie can find these opportunities and quickly drive them to the bottom-line.”
