Monday 7th September, 2020

ERG a leading European independent power producer in the renewables sector has implemented SAP® Ariba® solutions to digitalise and unify its procurement operations. Having been in business for more than 80 years, ERG shifted from oil to green energy in 2008 by producing electricity from renewable sources such as wind, solar, hydroelectric and high-efficiency, low environmental impact cogenerative thermoelectric power plants.

ERG is adopting cloud-based technologies for a more flexible infrastructure with greater integration, better process efficiency, faster updating and lower management costs. ERG chose SAP Ariba solutions as part of a strategy to consolidate purchasing on a single platform, bringing the needs of various business functions together to share universal and timely information.

The SAP Ariba Sourcing and SAP Ariba Supplier Lifecycle and Performance solutions will enable ERG to collaborate with suppliers to help ensure alignment with its organisational principles and code of conduct. In particular, it will help ERG with its regular compliance assessments of strategic suppliers, which represent about 80 percent of the company’s purchases. By collaborating in real time, ERG can work to improve operating margins and reward strategic suppliers for compliance. The company said.

"Collaboration with suppliers could not be more important than it is right now as companies focus on business continuity,” said Chad Crook, senior vice president and global head of Customer Engagement and Adoption, SAP Procurement Solutions. “With SAP Ariba solutions, ERG has a digitalised and simplified process for end-to-end spend management on a single platform and the ability to more effectively connect and collaborate with suppliers to achieve compliance and maintain a smooth flow of operations among its trading partners.”
