For the registration and approval of its suppliers, Abertis uses the external system Docuplus S&I, an online directory of suppliers of goods and services that serves the main companies in the Services and Industry sector.

Depending on the supplier's annual turnover level and the categories of products and services to which it dedicates its main activity, Abertis establishes whether the supplier must be registered at the basic or premium level.

It will be Abertis who will determine the premium registration which implies the provision of additional documentation and the payment of an annual fee to Achilles South Europe by the supplier.

What is SAP Ariba or Ariba Business Network?

It is a source-to-pay solution, which is part of a trading community with more than 2 million organisations (the largest e-commerce community in the world). Its main objective is to improve and energise business relationships. Ariba will offer you a multitude of solutions such as digitisation of orders, invoices and payments. You will also have better management of data including bank accounts, contacts, updates and new orders and invoices. 

What are the benefits for the supplier?

It reduces administrative costs related to invoice management, allows real-time order tracking, invoice entry and payment dates, error detection and immediate notification of errors.

Is it a secure network?

Ariba Business Network, communicates using HTTP over SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). SSL is the industry standard method used to secure Web communications. The SSL security protocol provides RSA data encryption, server authentication, message integrity and optional client authentication for TCP/IP connections.

Ariba Business Network servers use a Verisign Class 3 digital server certificate to enable SSL connections. Ariba Business Network is secured with at least 128-bit encryption and 256-bit encryption if supported by the customer's browser.

What happens to my old account (Supplier Portal)?

This portal is no longer active as of 15 September 2020.  From this date onwards, all orders and invoices will be processed via the SAP Ariba Business Network

Is SAP Ariba Business Network mandatory, is it not possible to continue using paper invoicing?

This system allows real-time invoice tracking, with the advantage of immediate notification of any discrepancies in the invoice. It also helps to reduce the use of paper and avoids delays in payment due to misplaced or lost documentation and other issues. By working together, we will achieve a more efficient and environmentally sustainable payment cycle.

How do I create my Ariba Business Network user? How do I link my Ariba Business Network account to Abertis/Autopistas?

This process is done automatically by us and you will receive the connection instructions with your first order via interactive email.

Is Ariba a free platform?

Yes, the Ariba Business Network is free for our suppliers. However, there are two types of accounts depending on several factors which are reflected in the table below:

•Standard: at no additional cost regardless of the volume of transactions. Access to orders and the creation of invoices is managed via links sent by email. It is recommended to save and archive these links for future reference. 

•Enterprisefree: of charge as long as the following two thresholds are not exceeded for at least one customer per year: 1) A maximum of 5 transactions or documents (orders, invoices, etc.) and 2) Not exceeding a certain financial volume, which can be found in the following table:

Will Abertis/Autopistas bear the possible costs arising from Enterprise accounts?

No, Abertis only asks the supplier to register for at least a free Standard account.

If I already work with an account for other clients, is there any additional cost?

In this case Ariba will make a new assignment that groups all your business relationships in the Ariba Business Network
