Supplier Portal UKI Decommissioning

Supplier Portal UKI Decommissioning

Sky has partnered with SAP Ariba, to provide a single solution to transmit purchase orders and receive invoices electronically.

If you have used Supplier Portal UKI, please be aware this will be decommissioned by March 2023.

To continue working with us, you will need to log into the SAP Business Network to receive POs and send invoices electronically.

Action required from UKI Supplier Portal Suppliers

  • Please watch the Standard Account Summit recording below, explaining why this change is necessary and what you should do next.
  • If you are interested in becoming an Enterprise supplier ( fees applicable) please click on the Enterprise Account Summit tile, to view the Summit briefing. This will explain what you should do next to be set up as an Enterprise account supplier.
  • Once your account on the UKI Supplier portal has been disabled,  you will receive an interactive email from SAP.
  • From the email, follow the instructions to either:
    (a) sign up to create a new account with the SAP Business Network and complete the new supplier registration process, or 
    (b) log in if you have an existing SAP Business Network account, using your SAP Business Network username and password, and update your details where appropriate. 

Registration to the Standard account is quick, free and necessary for you to be able to receive PO’s and issue invoices to us.  

Benefits of this change

  • SAP Business Network allows immediate delivery of purchase orders and facilitates the change order process.
  • Suppliers get immediate acknowledgment when invoices are submitted and delivered into Sky’s payment systems.
  • Suppliers can view invoice payment status directly from the SAP Business Network or can choose to receive email notification on invoice status.
  • By removing paper from the invoicing process, Sky and its suppliers jointly contribute to a more sustainable environment and a reduced carbon footprint.
