Elanco SAP Ariba® Implementation

Elanco has streamlined our procurement and accounts payable processes by partnering with SAP Ariba to fulfill our vision of moving away from paper and manually transmitted documents. The transition to SAP Ariba accompanied the deployment of Elanco’s new SAP enterprise resource planning (ERP) platform in 2021. Since our acquisition of Bayer Animal Health in August 2020, Elanco has been operating on two separate systems and processes while we aligned our back-office systems to fully integrate both companies. We’ve made significant progress and the activity is nearing completion. We expect our shift to One Integrated Elanco to be complete in April 2023. The integration will enable Elanco, and our vendors to engage with one another through a single set of tools and processes.

Please read this update on the stabilization of our new systems, including important reminders regarding invoice processing and contact information.

A primary rationale in our choice of SAP Ariba is the range of benefits the Ariba Network brings to our suppliers. Transacting purchase orders and invoices through the Ariba Network improves speed with real-time purchase order delivery, use of online catalogs and invoice automation which improves compliance. Suppliers seeking to grow their reach can also leverage the tools and connections on the Ariba Network to seek out potential new business opportunities.

It should also be noted that due to postal processes and manual interventions, invoices submitted by post/paper can take 5-15 days longer to process (from supplier mailing) than invoices submitted through the Ariba network where we usually begin processing within 24 hours of receipt.  This can result in a delay in suppliers receiving payment.

SAP Ariba is Elanco’s preferred method of transacting with suppliers, sending purchase orders and receiving invoices. However, suppliers in some countries may not be able to send invoices via the Ariba network due to government regulations or other local requirements. You can find a listing of invoicing methods by country here.

Further information and support will be available and posted here shortly. For immediate inquiries, please contact the Elanco Ariba Supplier Enablement Team at

Supplier Information on the Acquisition of Bayer Animal Health

Elanco completed the acquisition of Bayer Animal Health on August 1, 2020. These two complementary animal health-focused organizations are now unbound from human pharma, creating one company solely focused on animal health, dedicated to innovating and delivering for farmers, veterinarians and pet owners. Together, we are committed to providing a more comprehensive portfolio of products along with unparalleled service and support to our customers and the animals in their care, because making their lives better, makes life better.

We are in the process of integrating our business operations and will keep our combined suppliers informed on aspects that might impact the way we work together. Alignment of Elanco’s two SAP Ariba systems (heritage-Elanco and heritage-Bayer Animal Health) will occur at a later date, in the meantime, suppliers should use one of both of the respective SAP and SAP Ariba systems relevant to the contracting part of Elanco.
