Dole processes 48,000 purchase orders each year from farmers across several countries and regions. In order to shorten the PO process, Dole needed to centralize all data and standardize and automate the tools, information, and practices used to manage procurement processes across the region, to save precious time and money. The company looked to SAP to streamline the entire procure-to-pay process.
