How to transact via Purchase Order
Once you are an awarded vendor, you will be fully onboarded to receive Purchase Orders.
Schlumberger is in the process of implementing a single SAP solution across the entire organization. Ariba Network will become the primary channel for the interactions throughout the Procure to Pay process. Exceptions and deployment information will be communicated by your Supply Chain point of contact.
Once your account is set up, you will be able to receive Purchase Orders from the Ariba Network.
When a PO is issued, you will receive an email with a link to the system. For non-SAP deployed regions, other purchasing systems are used in a similar manner.
It is very important to acknowledge the Purchase Order in the system to confirm that the services and/or goods can be provided as per required dates, quantities and description. Incoterms and Point of Delivery shall also be very clear to determine buyer and seller responsibilities.
