We partner with suppliers who share our commitment to creating medicines and solutions that put impact first.

To ensure AbbVie’s success in the long term, we work with suppliers that operate with the future in mind.

Registration and approval as a supplier are required to do business with AbbVie. To make registration as straightforward as possible, we’ve partnered with SAP Ariba to provide a portal for would-be suppliers. The link to the Ariba Network portal is included in the email from your AbbVie business or procurement partner, inviting you to register.
To start the registration process, you’ll first need to create an Ariba Network account. This account provides access to the portal. Control over who has access to the portal is yours – you can add users and create roles to allow different users different access. If you are approved to be an AbbVie supplier, you will also use the portal to keep your information—including addresses, points of contact, and bank accounts—up-to-date.
Registration with AbbVie does not guarantee business; however, it does increase the chances of your business being reviewed by the appropriate persons on our procurement team.
Both our Quick Start Guide and Ariba Portal User Guide for Suppliers provide instruction on how to create your Ariba Network account and complete your AbbVie registration. Refer to the Ariba Portal User Guide for Suppliers for additional instruction on adding users, creating roles and assigning roles to your Ariba Network users.
