Dollar Tree utilizes Ariba® Sourcing™ for many sourcing and information projects.
To improve our ability to research suppliers for opportunities, Dollar Tree is utilizing the supplier database within Dollar Tree’s Ariba site as its primary resource for identifying suppliers for opportunities. The site will also serve as the repository to maintain required documentation such as Nondisclosure Agreements and Insurance Certifications. It will be the supplier’s responsibility to maintain this data and keep documentation current. Expired or inaccurate data could preclude the ability of a supplier to participate in an event.
Create/Maintain Your Supplier Profile
Dollar Tree requires that you create, update, and maintain a supplier profile:
Once you have created your profile, please keep it current. You may update it any time you are logged into the system by clicking “Preferences” and then “Update My Profile”. When finished making changes to your profile, click “OK” and then “Done”.
Dollar Tree Procure to Pay (P2P)
Our vision is to make the procurement-to-pay process as paperless as possible. Dollar Tree utilizes Ariba’s Spend Management Solution Procure-to-Pay (P2P) as the technology platform to enable these processes. All suppliers, except ones that ship directly to our distribution centers, are required to use the Ariba Network (AN). The Ariba Network is used by Dollar Tree to send purchase orders and to receive invoices from suppliers. A few of the benefits that suppliers see are:
- Higher control over order processing
- Ability for all suppliers to create electronic invoices
- Better communication and visibility with Dollar Tree
- Quicker invoice-to-pay process
- Greater standardization
- Low-cost trading network
- Opportunities to take part in greater discount management & sourcing programs
Suppliers that ship directly to Dollar Tree Distribution Centers or work directly with the Dollar Tree Expense department must continue to maintain updated information with the Dollar Tree Expense department via your direct contact. For suppliers working with the Dollar Tree Merchandising group, this profile does not supersede or replace any requirements from the Merchandising unit and you must continue to maintain your records with your direct contact (example: insurance certification).
