Cummins uses a global procurement system called Ariba Cloud from Ariba Inc., to handle indirect purchases and many locations around the world currently use this system.
An important piece of the Ariba Cloud system is the catalog provided by our suppliers. Catalogs provide efficiency in the procurement process so that users can efficiently select items and place orders swiftly with suppliers. Compared with having to manually create a purchase requisition in detail to order the same items. Catalogs are managed and updated by our Suppliers through Ariba Network. You will be required to have an Ariba Network account. For more information on registering for an Ariba Network account click here.
As a supplier, it is recommended that you review the catalog content at least once a year to ensure the information is current. This will ensure your invoices match the purchase order and get paid on time.
Cummins supports two types of catalogs:
The choice of catalog type will depend on your sourcing agreement with Cummins. Consult with your Cummins Sourcing Manager for direction on the type of catalog to set up for Cummins. Quality content for the catalogs ensures that our buyers are able to efficiently locate and swiftly purchase items that are available through the catalogs.
To provide quality catalog content, please adhere to the following guidelines.
