Goods not for resale

Our suppliers matter

For goods not for resale, collaboration on all sourcing and contracting activity is conducted via the Ariba Network, an online marketplace for buyers and sellers. This includes requests for information, proposals, quotes, participation in online auctions and contract negotiations.

Going forward, Coles will also collaborate with suppliers on core Purchase-to-Pay activity (ordering, fulfillment and invoicing) via the Ariba Network, providing a seamless, efficient interaction.

Our move to SAP Ariba will:

  • Simplify, automate and digitise the Source-to-Pay processes
  • Allow Coles and our suppliers to collaborate and transact electronically making the process simpler, more accurate, transparent and efficient
  • Facilitate process integrity as it provides visibility through the entire process
  • Provide security as all submissions are protected by visibility restrictions in the system, allowing only approved personnel to view responses at the appropriate time in the tendering process
