3M will soon begin using the Ariba Network to exchange Purchase Orders and related documents with their trading partners. This go-live date for this change is August 2, 2018, although it could begin as early as July 28. Trading partners might still receive documents from 3M through other systems as well. Therefore, it’s important to be able to support multiple tools from 3M.

Does your company do business with 3M? If so, it’s important to be prepared for the go-live date. Steps to take include keeping your company profile information up to date on your Ariba Network account and reviewing your order routing settings for Purchase Orders. 3M also recommends that its trading partners attend a functional training web conference on either July 12 or July 19.
