Enjoy Casinos Bets Big on SAP Ariba to Drive Efficiency and Innovation
In the fast-paced, dynamic business of tourism and gaming, procurement and supplier management can be a complex process. Enjoy Casinos SA requires a diverse array of products from some 3,000-plus suppliers to run ten of the biggest gaming, entertainment and business complexes in Chile, Argentina and Uruguay. And when the company decided to digitize and streamline procurement to drive greater efficiency and cost savings, they chose SAP Ariba.
“We needed more efficiency and speed in procurement to drive bottom line results,” said Gonzalo Ugarte, Head of Corporative Services & Innovation for Enjoy Casinos. “With SAP Ariba, not only have we been able to centralize and accelerate our purchasing processes – we have been able to improve communication and collaboration with our suppliers to bring even more benefits to the business.”
Enjoy Casinos chose SAP Ariba to digitize procurement in part because the company had already been successfully running its back-end operations on SAP ERP. Aside from the ease of integration with existing systems, Enjoy said the solution’s broad market coverage and connections to more than 3.6 million companies on the Ariba® Network convinced management to make the move.
Since connecting to the Ariba Network and implementing a variety of SAP Ariba’s cloud-based applications, including SAP Ariba Strategic Sourcing Suite™ less than one year ago, Enjoy Casinos has transformed its procurement operation and achieved results including:
- 10 to 20 percent savings on overall purchases
- shorter bidding cycles for commodities and services
- greater transparency in the bidding process
- improved supplier relationships and ability to negotiate agreements
