SAP Ariba: Digital Procurement and Supplier Management & Cloud-Based B2B Marketplace

In todays globalized, digitalized economy, cost pressure is ramping up exponentially – especially for SMEs. Procurement is increasingly becoming the determining factor in generating higher margins and boosting companies’ competitiveness. What used to be simply a matter of procuring the right components is increasingly turning into a need to cultivate lasting business relationships.

Manage All Your Procurement Process End-to-End in the Cloud

SAP Ariba, acquired by SAP in 2012, is a cloud-based platform where all procurement and sourcing processes can be managed end-to-end. The solution provides businesses of all sizes with a structure where they can connect with their trade partners any time they need and monitor all processes from sourcing to payment with the help of this connection.

Become Part of the World’s Largest Supplier Marketplace

Over 2.5 million participating companies make SAP Ariba the largest digital marketplace for contacting suppliers. It allows users to manage their procurement processes in a fully digitalized and centralized way. The solution is geared toward companies that want to make their procurement processes – from purchasing through to invoicing – more efficient.

SAP Ariba, operating in more than 190 countries, combines industry-leading cloud-based practices with the Ariba Network, the world’s largest internet-based commercial community, to help over 2.5 million  companies connect via a global network. A supplier in the Ariba Network is included in the world’s largest B2B marketplace, which has more than double the volume of millions of companies and even Amazon, Alibaba and eBay.

SAP Ariba Solutions

Supplier Management

SAP Ariba Supplier Management offers functions to enable businesses to evaluate the performance of their existing suppliers and also engage with new suppliers depending on new procurement needs. SAP Ariba analyzes articles, news stories, reports and third-party content on the Internet, allowing companies to segment suppliers with up-to-date information. Thanks to SAP Ariba Supplier Risk, which is part of the solution range, risk views and alerts can be configured for each supplier relationship and role prior to procurement.

Strategic Sourcing

With the SAP Ariba Strategic Sourcing solution portfolio, you can manage your entire sourcing, contracting, and spend analysis processes for all types of spend – direct and indirect materials as well as services – all in one place. Contract processes, which usually progress quite slowly after supplier selection and require commercial cooperation, can be managed with Ariba Contracts, a part of the solution portfolio. The solution offers a platform where companies can easily manage multiple templates, access a rich pool of contracts and compliance can be monitored with easy workflows.

Procurement

With SAP Ariba Procurement, you can manage all operational procurement processes from request to invoicing, access more options through catalog enablement and gain more control over costs and potential risks. As your buying processes run with maximum efficiency, your invoicing and payment transactions are seamlessly integrated into the ERP systems.

Financial Supply Chain

With SAP Ariba Financial Supply Chain, you can automate the manual, paper-based processes in the procurement cycle. Intelligent invoicing functions alert the suppliers about mistakes. The solution enables cash and liquidity management by assessing your current payment terms and cash position according to industry.

Spend Analysis

Spend Analysis offers insightful analyses of not only procurement transactions on SAP Ariba but also the procurement processes on SAP ERP as well as non-SAP ERP systems with its own Big Data analytics tools and grouping algorithms. This allows the spend analysis to provide insights into the next procurement activity.

Buying

SAP Ariba Buying solution allows buying to be managed with or without catalog. With catalogued buying management, requests can be opened through the catalogs of suppliers in the Ariba Network and catalogs of approved suppliers can be created on the system. This allows users to access the item to be purchased via the SAP Ariba platform without the need for any additional information.

Contracts

SAP Ariba Contracts solution allows systematic tracking and management of all contracts related to specific procurement. The contracts can be monitored not only in terms of prices and quantities but also their legal aspects. When contracts are managed on the SAP Ariba platform, you can monitor the expiration dates of specific contracts with the ready reports available in the system and design alerting mechanisms.
