  • It’s Easy to Register as an Indirect Supplier

    We use the Ariba E-Sourcing platform to register indirect suppliers. Click here to register.

    Your company will be directed to the Ariba commerce site to create a username and password in order to access the Ariba commerce site in the future. After completing the username and password information, your company will be required to fill out the company profile questionnaire. Once you complete your registration, your information will be stored with Winn-Dixie and the appropriate Sourcing Manager will be notified.

    For questions or technical issues, please contact the Ariba help desk at 866-218-2155.

    What to Expect Next

    After your company registers in Ariba and is approved, you will receive an email to confirm that you have been approved as a new vendor. The next time Winn-Dixie sources a category that your company supports, your company may be notified and invited to participate. Selection will be based on how closely your services match up with our needs.

    Advantages of the Ariba E-Sourcing Platform

    Ariba facilitates Winn-Dixie’s registration and approval process and allows us to conduct sourcing events in a centralized place. We can compare registered suppliers based on the categories they support and conduct RFXs as needed. The biggest benefit is better communication throughout the sourcing process.

    How to Become EDI Compliant

    If you anticipate processing 12 or more invoices a year, Winn Dixie requires that you become EDI compliant. Achieving EDI compliancy is easy, and the advantages for both parties are significant.

    Please contact SPS Commerce by email or phone to initiate the process for becoming EDI compliant.
