Allan Caballero leads Accenture’s Philippines-based team of professionals dedicated to implementing SAP solutions – including S/4HANA, SAP Ariba, SAP Fieldglass, SAP Concur, SAP SuccessFactors, and SAP Customer Experience – for hundreds of the professional services company’s clients. Accenture is not only a trusted SAP Ariba partner, but it’s also a prized customer.
“Here in Accenture, we are using SAP Ariba to support our procurement activities,” says Caballero. “A large part of the team that implemented SAP Ariba is actually based out of the Philippines. We started the journey back in 2016, and we’re now live in 65 countries.” Accenture wrapped up its own implementation in only 13 months.
Caballero also points out that a growing proportion of Accenture clients are implementing SAP Ariba and SAP Fieldglass jointly. “If you look at our SAP portfolio today, of the clients that we support, 80 of those 200 clients are Ariba and Fieldglass clients,” he says.
