6 October - Atos wins Gold SAP Quality Award for small innovation
Atos has won the highest award in the category “small innovation” for the implementation of Ariba’s e-sourcing module, which is one of many that combined a suite of Ariba’s e-procurement tools enabled by Atos.
The successful implementation of e-sourcing was completed in partnership between SAP/Ariba and Atos procurement and IT teams. The roll out to 40 countries and 160 users was completed with just 60 days of combined effort and was due to the excellent project management and a joint partnership approach.
Atos’ procurement teams across all countries now operate on a single ERP platform with fully integrated e-procurement tools including SRM, e-Sourcing, e-Catalogues, e-PO/e-invoice, contract and supplier management tools. This has enabled procurement to minimise risks and delivered significant savings and substantial process improvements to the Atos Group.
Atos SVP & Chief Procurement Officer, Enguerrand de Pontevès says “I am extremely proud. This Gold award from SAP is our third industry award of the year. It is public recognition of our professionalism and commitment to delivering excellent procurement services to the Atos Group, through excellent collaboration and partnership between our internal functions and external partners.”
