Atlas Air Fuels Savings and Compliance with Ariba

SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ariba, Inc. (Nasdaq: ARBA), the leading spend management solutions provider, today announced that it has signed a new agreement with Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, Inc. (AAWW) (Nasdaq: AAWW), a leading provider of global air cargo assets and services. Under the terms of the agreement, Atlas Air will leverage Ariba’s SaaS offerings to drive savings across its operations and ensure that they make their way to the bottom line.

“At Atlas Air, we are committed to delivering game-changing solutions that enable our customers to drive business growth, and in order to do this, we must diligently manage our costs and operate at the highest levels of efficiency,” said Larry Gibbons, Vice President, Procurement, Atlas Air. “Ariba’s SaaS solutions provide us with flexible technology and best-practice processes that we can use to negotiate best-value contracts. But perhaps more important, they enable us to drive compliance with these agreements across our operations to ensure that the value we negotiate actually materializes.”

As part of its Continuous Improvement initiatives, Atlas Air will implement Ariba® Sourcing On-Demand, Ariba Contract Management On Demand and Ariba Procure-to-Pay.

Using Ariba Contract Management, organizations can move beyond basic authoring and document archiving to manage terms and risks and drive compliance with agreements on an enterprise-wide basis.

The heart of Ariba’s Procurement solution, Ariba Procure-To-Pay combines the functionality of Ariba Buyer, Ariba Invoice, Ariba Settlement and Ariba Analysis in a single, integrated solution to help companies automate, improve, control and monitor procurement to realize immediate process efficiencies and cost savings.

“In order to keep pace in today’s volatile and fiercely competitive market for global cargo services, Atlas Air must operate more efficiently and cost effectively than ever before,” said Daryl Rolley, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, North America and Asia Pacific Operations, Ariba. “In implementing Ariba’s SaaS solutions, Atlas Air can enable this agility by dialing up the technology, expertise and services it needs as it needs them to control its costs, minimize risk, improve profits and optimize cash flow and operations.”
