For prospective and current suppliers, AB Agri is in the process of transitioning to a new purchase-to- pay system.
Purchase-to-pay is an integrated system that fully automates the goods and services purchasing process. The system manages all aspects of the purchase requisition from the purchase of goods or services to customers’ payments of the vendor. The process will streamline our process for both AB Agri and its suppliers.
The purchase-to-pay system is a cloud-based purchasing and payment tool that will make it simpler for suppliers to work with AB Agri. This new way of working will facilitate all purchase orders, invoices, and communications.
Our rollout will take a phased approach, starting in the UK in Q2 2021. Our supplier enablement team will be in contact to provide all the necessary information that suppliers need and to start the transition process several months before any change is made. The rollout will be phased across AB Agri business units, so it is possible that if you supply multiple businesses, you will be asked to transition at a different rate. After the UK rollout it is anticipated that the system will then be rolled out across our remaining global businesses from 2022 onwards.
