In optimizing the Philips Request-to-Pay process, Philips has started to send Requests for Quote (RFQ) digitally, via the Philips Sourcing system ‘Ariba’. Selected suppliers receive invitations to participate in an ‘event’, for which we request you to provide your offer to the products or services Philips intends to purchase.
To respond to such event, you are advised to register and logon to the Ariba Network via https://service.ariba.com/Supplier.aw , in which you can provide your RFQ response online. When providing your quotation via the Ariba Network, you enjoy the benefits of a user interface containing many features, detailed information about the Philips request, and easy access to online help via https://uex.ariba.com/ and https://support.ariba.com/help
As alternative, suppliers can provide their response to our sourcing event via email as well.
However, submitting your response via email only supports providing basic data like price and delivery date; so in all cases suppliers are advised to register onto Ariba Network and submit your offer online. This document is intended to support you on how to provide Philips with your response via email to our sourcing event.
