ENTERPRISE software provider SAP announced the implementation of its cloud-based business network and source-to-settle solution called SAP Ariba Snap for LapuLapu Leisure Inc., a member of the PH Resorts Group Holdings Inc. under the Udenna Group.

This system helps digitally transform the developer’s purchasing process as it gears up to open the Emerald Bay Resort and Casino on time and within the budget.

“Efficiency and excellence in procurement are critical to business growth no matter the size or location of the organization,” said Jason Wolf, senior vice president and general manager of SAP Ariba Asia-Pacific Japan.

“With SAP Ariba Snap, fast-growing enterprises like LapuLapu Leisure can move to a digital procurement process and start realizing the benefits quickly to help power further investment and innovation,” he added.

Deployed in less than 12 weeks, LapuLapu Leisure has replaced tedious manual processes with more efficient digital ones that help increase the accuracy and speed of approvals, payments and delivery.

“SAP Ariba Snap has met the requirements for the procurement system we have in mind,” said Mean Bernal, procurement manager at Udenna Corp. “It will help us ease the process by automating the system so we can concentrate on doing what we do best—building world-class resorts.”

According to LapuLapu Leisure Information Technology Director Elvie Bantug, their partnership with the global cloud business software firm for the Emerald Bay digitalization project has also enabled them not to redo the integration development processes when they rolled out the system to other departments.

Because the solution is pre-loaded with content from SAP Ariba’s supplier marketplace, LapuLapu Leisure is now connected to the 4.6 million companies on the digital network worldwide.

“SAP Ariba Snap provides us with access to the same powerful solutions that Fortune 500 companies use for simpler, smarter sourcing. We look forward to realizing the savings, efficiencies and innovation we’ve seen so many others achieve with SAP Ariba,” she said.

LapuLapu Leisure is the first adopter of SAP Ariba Snap in the Philippines. In partnership with Deloitte, it implemented such solution to support the “pre-operational” phase of the Emerald Bay project.

Designed to be one of the biggest business and leisure destinations in the Philippines, it will house 838 hotel rooms, 146 gaming tables, 1,186 electronic gaming machines, 35 high-fashion boutiques, 18 specialty restaurants, a 3,000-capacity ballroom, and more.

Construction of the five-star hotel and casino is now ongoing. It is scheduled to open this year in Mactan Island.

Seeing the initial success of the solution, SAP Ariba said the system will be used for future projects of the PH Resorts Group, per Bernal.

“With the recent go-live, we believe that our procurement processes, which were done manually previously, will be easier and more intuitive. The success of this implementation project will benefit us with an easy-to-use interface and attractive catalogs that will entice our suppliers to adapt to the system seamlessly,” she stressed.
