Sasol fuels supply chain efficiency with SAP Ariba deployment

Sasol fuels supply chain efficiency with SAP Ariba deployment

Successfully navigating a business through uncertain times requires that decision-makers have full visibility over every aspect of the business in order to make accurate, informed decisions.

For one of South Africa’s largest global organisations, decentralised and siloed procurement systems and processes across multiple business units left it blind and lacking the visibility it needed to better serve the business.

“We had, at the time (2012), 15 business units within the Southern Africa region, each using different procurement processes and different systems,” says Hendrik Steynberg, Vice President of Supply Chain Operations and Systems at Sasol. “This left us with disparate master data and no end-to-end visibility over our supply chain. We wanted a single integrated procure-to-pay platform that provided us with a clear view into spend and the ability to quickly onboard, engage and manage suppliers.”

Sasol is a global integrated chemicals and energy company that sources, produces and markets a range of high-value product streams in 31 countries. The company employs more than 30 000 people and generates revenue of more than $21.7-billion. Sasol manages more than R50-billion in spend across 12 000 global suppliers.

To centralise and standardise its procure to-pay processes, Sasol chose SAP Ariba, the world’s largest procurement platform that facilitates $3.2-trillion in commerce transacted annually across 190 countries.
