Emerald Bay Resort and Casino is gearing up to open on time and on budget. Its developer LapuLapu Leisure, Inc. is ensuring it keeps to this goal by maximizing the efficiency of its procurement function.
LapuLapu Leisure is a member of the PH Resorts Group Holdings, Inc., the gaming and hospitality arm of the Udenna Group. The Emerald Bay Resort and Casino will be one of the largest business and leisure destinations in the Philippines with 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. The five-star hotel and casino is currently under construction and scheduled to open in 2020 on Mactan Island near the city of Cebu.
LapuLapu Leisure needed to eliminate its manual, paper-based procurement practices to support its aggressive growth plans, and the company decided SAP Ariba Snap was the solution to get a digitalized end-to-end source-to-settle process up and running quickly to support the “pre-operational” phase of the Emerald Bay project.
LapuLapu Leisure is now connected to the Ariba® Network and the 4.6 million companies on the digital network worldwide. The SAP Ariba solutions have helped LapuLapu Leisure optimize its procurement process, better manage its supplier relationships and achieve higher cost efficiencies.
