Digitalizing MOL Group’s procurement processes
MOL Group’s declared strategic plan is to digitalize its operations with the help of new generation technologies and to automate its core business processes. Digitalizing procurement with SAP Ariba solutions is the next phase in MOL Group’s digitalization plan.
With the implementation of SAP Ariba solutions MOL’s procurement operation will be standardized on a single platform in the cloud. They can improve collaboration and communication among purchasing colleagues and suppliers.
Reflecting to the current situation Péter Labancz, the Chief Procurement Officer of MOL stated: “All the benefits we realized from digitalizing with the SAP Ariba solutions during the pilot project were even more apparent after we witnessed the fragility of supply chains in this industry in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic.“.
The company hopes that with Ariba they can make their supplier collaborations even more efficiently by managing our subcontractors’ database centrally. This will reduce procurement lead times, improve data and process transparency and reliability. Other benefits will include reducing manual data entry and enabling the group’s cultural and procurement transformation journey.
SAP Ariba offers MOL Group a modern digital solution to maximize its procurement efficiency and enhance collaboration with suppliers. The company will also use the Ariba Network, widening its procurement reach and making it even more transparent.
