Access to Ariba supplier network

In line with Western Power’s objectives of providing Safe, Reliable and Affordable services to our customers, we are streamlining our purchasing processes to take advantage of the many benefits of Business to Business electronic document exchange.

We are seeking your support as we transition to a paperless ordering and invoicing environment via the Ariba Supplier Network.

The Ariba Supplier Network, accessible online, provides a comprehensive shared eBusiness solution that automates and streamlines business processes from order through to payment. By transacting in this way we will both realise benefits such as:

  • improved business collaboration
  • shorter ordering cycles
  • improved payment times
  • improved invoice matching accuracy
  • Greater visibility throughout the order cycle (e.g. knowing if an invoice is processed and approved for payment).

As a result of this transition the following business processes will occur electronically via the Ariba Supplier Network:

  • Purchase Order transmission to your business
  • Purchase Order invoicing by your business to Western Power
  • General Transaction Status Reporting
