SAP How to achieve global digital collaboration in the supply chain by using Peppol

  • Equinor’s ambition within business to business (B2B), is to achieve a touchless digital interaction between Equinor and the suppliers with exchange of structured business transactions. The value proposition of B2B is linked to both compliance and increased efficiency for all participants in the supply chain. 
  • Equinor uses the Peppol infrastructure and eDelivery network to digitally exchange business documents with suppliers. They have had great success with eInvoices, ePurchase orders, Variation orders (and more) and are now in the process of also enabling logistic messages as Advance shipping notification and Peppol logistics. 
  • Equinor will present their B2B journey/strategy and why Peppol is beneficial for all companies across industries.

’’SAP Digital Supplier Network - Your digital shopping window’’

  • ARIBA overview
  • Supplier Network overview
  • Integration
  • 5 min Q&A

Today, companies are trying to meet the requirements of rapid response to technological changes, the effects of natural disasters or changes in the balance of power on the natural resources markets. One of the approaches is a universal approach to changing the perception of the business environment from the old - linear to modern, i.e., networked.
A natural consequence of the modern perception of the supply chain as a network are partnerships and cooperation between companies, which are gradually evolving from individual deviation correction to the strategic / systemic level – establishing long-term business relationships with qualified suppliers, based on mutual benefits, development, and growth. This type of partnership allows companies to optimize resources and focus on their strengths and redirect energy and resources to work on strategic activities.
As part of the optimization of procurement processes, companies strive to reduce the number of sources of their origin and thus to unify data that can later be easily and quickly processed. Fewer sources provide lower costs, greater flexibility, and speed of information acquisition. All this makes reporting difficult and yet we cannot effectively manage something that we cannot measure. The use of networks that connect customers with suppliers and third-party networks enables companies to maximize the benefits while minimizing costs, risks, and complexity. Using the ability of business networks to improve the speed and quality of information flows between organizations allows businesses to achieve benefits in all areas of their business, and perhaps more importantly, these benefits are not one-off.
A proposal to address the above trends is SAP Business Network, as a part of Rise with SAP, whose elements are Logistics Business Network, Asset Intelligence Network, and the most advanced supplier network [SN] from the point of view of embedding in the market.
AS a dynamic, digital marketplace where millions of buyers and suppliers, operating in more than 190 countries, transact trillions of dollars in business commerce every year. Using it streamlines the course of the purchase process by ensuring its predictability, transparency and access to data related to it.  Buyers can manage the entire procurement process from source to settle, while controlling spending, finding new sources of savings, and building a healthy, ethical supply chain.  Suppliers can help buyers achieve their procurement transformation goals, while boosting customer satisfaction, simplifying the sales cycle, and improving cash flow.
