WALLDORF, Germany — February 10, 2020 — SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announced the latest slate of companies across the globe who in the fourth quarter of 2019 chose SAP® Ariba® and SAP Fieldglass® solutions for intelligent spend management to help maximize efficiency in procurement operations and flexible workforce management by controlling costs, managing risks and discovering new opportunities to innovate and grow.
