US retailer Abercrombie & Fitch has signed up with spend management software firm Ariba to streamline its procurement processes.

Abercrombie will use Ariba's Sourcing On-Demand tool to reduce costs and support its global sourcing.

"As the economy continues to tighten, the costs of many goods and services can't be controlled, but there are plenty of categories in which savings can be had," said Kris Colby, director of spend management services and retail sector lead at Ariba.
