Supplier and partner resources

Welcome to our online resources for approved suppliers and partners. We recognize the value that comes from working closely with our suppliers, and are constantly developing ways of working that will simplify and make the cooperation more efficient, both for us and for our suppliers.

Online tools

In order to streamline co-operation with our approved suppliers and partners, we offer the following online services:

Ericsson Buyer
For Authorized Service Providers: Login to Ericsson Buyer, access online training, and access our support documents.

SAP Ariba (SAP Business Network)
SAP Ariba is a web-based application streamlining catalog-based ordering, PO collaboration and e-invoicing, serving as a replacement for Supply Network Collaboration (SNC) and Taulia.

Strategic Sourcing Suite (SSS)
If you have been invited to take part in one of our sourcing events, you can log on here.

Sourcing Contract Lifecycle Management (SCLM)
For use by Ericsson Sourcing during contract management to support eSignature through DocuSign.

Invoice and Procurement Collaboration Portal (IPCP)
Ericsson IPC portal allows suppliers to have full visibility of the invoices and PO status via the self service capabilities 24/7 and e-invoicing capabilities, free of charge. The portal is supplied by Taulia.

 

Important Note: IPCP will be decommissioned October 16th 2024. The solution is replaced by SAP Ariba.

 

SAP Fieldglass tool
Only suppliers that have been onboarded will have access to the tool.

PIS – Product Information Server
In PIS Ericsson shares product data and documents. Suppliers can get temporarily access connected to RFQs or a dedicated supplier area. The latter is setup in agreement with the Ericsson supplier responsible at Ericsson sourcing.
