Australian Paper is a manufacturer of pulp, paper, envelopes, and stationery. They are the country’s sole manufacturer of office and printing papers; bag, sack, and lightweight packaging; and industrial papers. They are also a major supplier of kraft linerboard for the cardboard carton industry.
With hundreds of sourcing projects and events each year, Australian Paper needed a source-to-contract solution to manage contracts and provide increased visibility on sourcing spend. In less than six months after implementing SAP Ariba solutions, Australian Paper averaged 18% savings on sourcing projects and increased efficiency by reducing sourcing cycle times from more than 15 hours to less than five.
