Cargill goes Ariba route

Published on .

Mountain View, Calif.--Cargill, Minneapolis, said Thursday that it plans to implement an Internet purchasing service that makes use of software from J.D. Edwards, Denver, and Ariba, Mountain View, Calif. The announcement is another boost to Ariba, which was one of the first companies to provide Internet purchasing software to corporations. Cargill, a dominant player in the food processing industry, said it purchases about $3 billion of goods and services in the U.S. annually. J.D. Edwards provides software that runs Cargill's financial operations and forecasting efforts on a worldwide basis. It will work with Ariba to make sure purchases made on the Internet can be automatically requisitioned and paid for by Cargill.
