The digitization of business interactions is an essential step on the way towards Industry 4.0. We want to take this step together with our suppliers. Therefore, we are now using the Strategic Procurement Suite (SPS) by SAP Ariba to handle the sourcing, supplier management and contracting process.
BASF now exclusively uses the online platform SPS by SAP Ariba for tenders. An exception is made for the following processes: civil construction (GAEB only) and transport management. In this case it is still required to participate via myFutura (see FAQ section).
For you as a supplier, the registration for SAP Ariba as well as the participation in tenders and contracting will be free of Charge.
