Intel is transitioning to the Ariba Network* to provide a more efficient, easy-to-use collaboration platform for its inbound supply chain. Transacting electronically on the Ariba Network will soon be a standard part of doing business with Intel.
This new platform will allow many of our suppliers to move away from paper-based and manually transmitted purchase orders and invoices currently associated with our Intel system, WebSuite.
Intel will be migrating suppliers to the Ariba Network over the next year. Intel will begin the onboarding process for each supplier, by sending a Project Notification Letter (see a sample PNL) with instructions about how to register on the Ariba Network and connect to Intel. Until you receive that Project Notification Letter, continue to use WebSuite on https://supplier.intel.com.
Benefits of the Ariba Network
Below are some of the benefits your company will experience with the Ariba Network:
- Receive electronic purchase order (PO) notifications and other documents
- View your Intel transactions online 24x7
- Submit invoices electronically (paperless) in more geographies
- Set up catalogs for your products and services
- Reduce administrative overhead for collaborating online
The Ariba Network consolidates transactions from multiple customers so that you can support your business through one system. Many of your existing customers may already be using the Ariba Network.
The Ariba Network platform allows you to move away from paper-based invoicing or manually transmitted transactions. The Ariba Network supports electronic invoicing in a much larger number of countries than is presently supported in Intel's WebInvoice application.
How Onboarding Works
Intel started working with suppliers to transition to the Ariba Network beginning in 2017.
