Founded in July 1802, by the French Eleuthère Irénée du Pont, in Wilmington, Delaware, United States, DuPont stands out for scientific discoveries and the development of products aimed at improving the lives of people around the world. Among its best-known innovations are products such as nylon, LYCRA®, Teflon® fluorocarbon, Nomex® and Kevlar® aramid fibers and Tyvek® high-density braided polyethylene fibers, in addition to several other discoveries that add more than 30 thousand items with cutting-edge technology.


Continuing the tradition of more than 200 years of innovation, DuPont maintains a community of scientists, engineers and collaborators who work every day to transform possibilities into answers for the real world, always pursuing the ultimate goal of promoting prosperity for society. Its activities in Brazil are focused on the areas of electronics and industrial, mobility and materials, water and protection and sustainability.


Between 2002 and 2003, DuPont global acquired the AribaBuyer solution to modernize and increase the efficiency of its outsourcing and logistics processes. DuPont do Brasil needed a technology provider partner to implement the tool and integrate it with its legacy systems. The main objectives of the project are listed below:

  • Install AribaBuyer 7.1 pilot;
  • Customize the solution to meet DuPont's functional and integration needs;
  • Carry out a supplier integration plan;


Due to the international success achieved by the implementation of the Aquanima project in Spain, Ariba recommended Hexacta Brasil as a local partner to implement the Ariba Buyer solution for DuPont in Brazil. Hexacta Brasil was responsible for the implementation and customization of Ariba Buyer to meet the operational needs of the Brazilian branch. The project involved the integration of the solution with legacy systems from DuPont Brasil and also with the corporate systems Tibco, RSA Security and SAP. There was also the elaboration and pilot project aimed at the Mexican market. The main requirements addressed by the project were:

  • Automated e-procurement processes for approved suppliers through the Ariba Customer Service Network.
  • Suppliers payment through P-Card.
  • Integration with legacy accountability and payment systems.



  • Custom Ariba Buyer in production in the US DuPont environment.
  • Automation and optimization of buying and payment processes from approved suppliers.
  • Greater control over internal e-procurement processes.

The implementation of Ariba Buyer in Brasil became a successful case within DuPont globally, with wide dissemination to the other branches.
