CCP Global has completed two successful SAP Ariba projects for an electronics solutions corporation, including acting as the principal architect in the implementation of an SAP ECC-integrated SAP Ariba Contracts solution with training and change management on behalf of users in North America, Europe, and Asia. In addition to supporting downstream S&OP programs in the ERP, the scope of the project included configuration of advanced aspects of Ariba Contracts functionality (such as Contract Authoring) and release to the international team of contract specialists.

A multi-billion-dollar chemical company was struggling with slow, inefficient processes due to multiple systems and outdated procedures. CCP Global was chosen to configure, design and deploy Ariba Buying and Invoicing. That included Guided Buying, Procurement Operations Desk, Tactical Sourcing, and all associated workflows. Because of the complexity of the project, it was deployed in two phases. Go Live was an outstanding success with limited issues and overwhelmingly positive feedback from users. The company eventually contracted with CCP Global’s Ariba Managed Services (AMS) for extended support and administration.

For over 15 years, CCP Global has provided support for a major media and entertainment corporation’s strategic SAP Ariba projects. Most recently, CCP has been supporting Source-to-Pay (S2P) business transformation. The current deployment phase is focused directly on SAP Ariba Buying and Invoicing. This is a holistic approach to transforming the Global S2P processes being driven by the business, in partnership with their Organizational Change Management (OCM) and their technology partners. From the technology perspective, this entails sunsetting SAP Ariba On-Premise and standing-up their SAP Ariba On-Demand applications. In addition, as the suppliers are on-boarded, they will transact within the Buying and Invoicing feature of AOD.

CCP Global has served as the leading SAP Ariba service partner for a major commercial airline supporting a suite-integrated SAP Ariba solution consisting of SAP Ariba Buying, SAP Ariba Contracts, SAP Ariba Sourcing, and SAP Ariba SIPM with integrations to SAP ECC and ServiceNow. CCP Global designed the solution and provided outsourced administration and enhancement services over an 18-month project duration. After implementation, CCP Global partnered with the client to drive user adoption of the system, rolling out comprehensive training and change management platforms to standardize business processes utilizing SAP Ariba among end users.

Winning a competitive RFP, CCP Global was chosen by a global leader in housing and building to implement a suite-integrated SAP Ariba solution consisting of SAP Ariba Buying and Invoicing and SAP Ariba Strategic Sourcing suite. Experiencing rapid growth through merger and acquisition, the client was faced with the technical and organizational challenges that accompany the move to a centralized model of spend management. This was completed while maintaining compliance with the laws and regulations of the various areas of the world in which the company conducts operations.
