Like many legacy companies, Mary Kay Inc. was struggling with its indirect spend management. While the cosmetics giant was known for its innovative beauty products, its indirect spend management was stuck in spreadsheets and emails.
Innovative spend management it was not. That is until it implemented the SAP Ariba Buying and Invoicing solution from SAP.
“We needed a solution that could measure our spending and where we spend. SAP Business Network and SAP Ariba solutions offered the best global solution and proven track record to suit our business transformation agenda,” Keith Learn, vice president of procurement and supplier development for Mary Kay, says.
