In Brisa Bridgestone Sabancı Lastik A.Ş. we’re using eBA Workflow Management System actively since 2004. With over 70 developed business process, approvals are given online, helping to speed up the processes and contributing to paper-free office environment.

It is especially preferable due to its easy integration to SAP and new forms are added to eBA system continuously. All reporting about the created forms can be done on the system and with the efficient documentation archive it provides any requested form can be quickly accessed.

Info

Indirect procurement

Challenge

To place orders for indirect materials requires multiple levels of approval based on the value of the order. This process was manual and heavily paper-based, leading to delays in orders, lost documents and limited process oversight from start to finish. It also required the end-users to interact with an inhouse-built purchasing platform integrated into SAP which was perceived by end-users as too complex or difficult to use.

Solution

An indirect PO approval form with approval process steps was created in eBA workflow management and integrated with the inhouse-built procurement platform.

Time to Implement

40-160 hours

Result

The indirect procurement process was dramatically approved both from a time and end-user experience perspective making it the biggest use-case of eBA at Bridgestone.
