SAP Ariba is an innovative cloud-based platform that enables suppliers, producers, and enterprises to find and conduct business with one another in a single location.
From the cloud, SAP Ariba gives its customers a variety of modules in the Ariba Network for procuring goods and services in B2B transactions. The platform is open to all systems and all types of goods and services. It improves companies' supplier management activities across the board by offering less expensive procurement options and simplifying business transactions. SAP Ariba also meets all the requirements that companies normally demand of such platforms, including negotiation options, integrated customer management, catalog management, and invoice overviews.
SAP Ariba consists of several different solutions that each represent a specific area and combine to form a comprehensive cloud platform.
The most important areas include:
Representing the main function of SAP Ariba, this user-friendly solution makes it possible to procure specific goods and manage invoices. It enables highly efficient catalog maintenance and offers a configurable user interface. Buying and Invoicing normally simplifies the procurement process by offering step-by-step instructions and taking the standards of each specific company into account.
This solution consists of an internal web shop with a modern, user-friendly interface. In addition, user-defined forms make it possible to configure flexible entry screens and adapt them to specific needs.
SAP Ariba Guided Buying can even guide employees without any buying experience through the procurement process efficiently and reliably, which helps avoid things like long onboarding times and potential errors.
This solution enables enterprises and suppliers to interact and exchange information in a central location. Companies receive comprehensive details on suppliers, including on their life cycles, performance, and qualifications. This makes it possible to drive spending toward preferred suppliers and reduce related risks – from supplier onboarding and qualification to segmentation and performance management.
The transparent tools provided by the SAP Ariba cloud platform enable you to control and manage your strategic procurement, contract, and billing processes in a centralized manner. Here, SAP Ariba Strategic Sourcing helps enterprises identify savings opportunities by offering clear overviews of spending and overall costs. This in turn makes it possible to analyze, assess, and consistently optimize all areas of the purchasing and procurement process from a strategic perspective.
The SAP Ariba Snap solution integrates all the features a midsize company needs to manage its purchasing processes.
By digitalizing and automating each step of your buying process, you can eliminate most of the manual, paper-intensive activities that prevent you from monitoring company-wide spending.
Role-based dashboards provide real-time information, enabling you to derive actionable insights that will help you control and reduce costs.
