What is SAP Ariba?

SAP Ariba is a cloud-based application for controlling as well as managing purchasing and procurement processes. SAP Ariba supports the digitalization of procurement departments, both in terms of operational and strategic processes. Ariba offers customers a wide range of different customizing-options that they can map in this system.

Starting with a classic catalog platform, which end users can use to enter their requirements and trigger orders from suppliers, right through to the invoice processing process. The entire process is digital and is mapped via the SAP Businessnetwork for Procuremenet.

Ariba also offers comprehensive supplier management, which can be used to register, qualify and evaluate suppliers. Risk management is also provided.

SAP Ariba also provides an attractive solution for sourcing. Tenders and auctions are carried out here. The results from these events can then be converted into contracts in the contract management area. There is also the possibility to map contracts completely digitally, including the integration of an eSignature solution, and to negotiate the contract completely online with the supplier with the help of SAP Businessnetwork.

Finally, Ariba also offers a module for supply chain collaboration to provide customers with a simple solution for managing their supply chains.

By opting for SAP Ariba, you save considerable costs in the long term. The solution reduces manual effort to a minimum and replaces it with automated processes. This significantly streamlines and standardizes processes. This reduces project lead times and creates employee capacity for value-added projects and processes.

Through its innovative power, SAP Ariba also creates a high level of acceptance and identification among employees. Good communication enables you to inform your colleagues at an early stage about the benefits and opportunities the transformation offers for the company and its staff. In addition, the new, attractive environment immediately ensures greater transparency and traceability for all those involved. Processes, orders, suppliers and contracts are clearly recorded and presented in an understandable way.

SAP Ariba gives you access to the “SAP Businessnetwork for Procurement” with over five million suppliers.

Of course, the solution is fully integrated into your SAP environment. You benefit from quarterly release cycles in which new features and enhancements are made available to you. There are no additional maintenance costs.

SAP Ariba is particularly convincing due to its simple and intuitive operation for the end user. It relieves your employees and simplifies your administration.
