Supplier Integration – eCatalog
After the discussion with the responsible Oerlikon procurement manager, the Supplier may be requested to conduct transactions using eCatalog. An electronic catalog adds value by providing options for enhanced product, content, and comparisons, thus improving end-user visibility.
Moreover, they increase compliance and guide requesters to preferred supplier commodities and pricing.
Suppliers can provide their catalog content using the Ariba CIF standard and/or can use Ariba PunchOut (cXML) to connect their e-Business Web site.
Guidelines and templates are available at the Ariba Supplier Network portal: https://supplier.ariba.com
