Likelihood to Recommend

Ariba Procurement

Ariba Procurement is an end to end product cloud-based product. With this tool, we can collaborate and share internally, collaborate and share with suppliers on a single platform, track events and get alerts – this feature is useful for risk management. On the other hand, there is no hesitation to recommend this product.

Emptoris

If you have a highly bureaucratic organization that is heavily focused on procurement, Emptoris can provide some value. It seemed to be very good at linking the contract information to procurement for better spend control. If you are trying to implement a standalone contract management solution that allows you to easily create contracts and store them in a central location, this isn't the tool for you. There doesn't appear to be a simplified implementation. In general, when a SaaS solution has a complicated and expensive implementation, I am very skeptical. This does not show that the vendor is trying to move customers forward on a single code base. If that many things need to be done during implementation, you are starting to customize the solution for every customer. This hurts the vendor's ability to scale and make improvements in the future.

Emptoris

  • Maintaining contracts as Templates, This feature has helped business to simplify the contract language maintenance and also helped simplify the maintenance of clause related elements that will be used across the product.
  • Easy way to create the contracts, Emptoris has provided the easy ways to create the contracts. We dont need any expertise for creating a contract , with interview module any one can do so by answering a simple set of questions.
  • Monitoring, This is the best feature I can really count on. The monitoring of the contract is made very easy with the simple configurations and can be monitored in different ways like workflows, email etc.
  • MS word as a plugin for editing the language, this is another best feature. Editng of contract language can be done by opening the contract language in a word document . It is a simple process - open, edit, save and close. This saves to Emptoris templates.

Cons

Ariba Procurement

  • While using the tool, we also have the need for client support or supporting our end users. I personally believe the customer support experience should be better.
  • Should have more features like working on all different browsers like Firefox and IE more efficiently.
  • Reporting functionality should be increased and have easy access.
  • Access to the system after getting approval.

The support team is responsive. On a few cases, issues take longer than usual to get resolved but mostly support is pretty good.

Emptoris

I think Emptoris stands up better against peers in terms of point A to Z solution: Better storage of all components related to the contract (contract management) in terms of all legal requirements, all compliance requirements, proper communication trail, various attachments, and other such related documents etc.
