Ariba Procurement

Well suited for meeting deadlines, if you chose to participate. Suitable for negotiating better pricing using by comparing average pricing from suppliers for a particular product. It also ensures supplier compliance to company preferred terms reconciling PO, invoice, PO, receipt & contract. It also reduces supply chain operation costs. Rather than spend resources in putting together the suppliers' needs everything can be controlled online.

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

Alternatives Considered

Ariba is a cloud-based sourcing and procurement system. It supports strategic solutions such as a request for information (RFI), request for proposal (RFP), and request for quotation (RFQ) as well as e-auction services. A cloud-based spend management software solution designed to help companies control spending and achieve goals. Precoro is a customization and simple spend and supplier relationship management software which provides purchase-to-pay and spend analytics for SMBs. It helps in selection and ordering, purchase order approval and delivery and billing.

Emptoris is very similar in functionality but more simple than the other tools I have used in the past. Some of its modules have been upgraded very well recently which helps it compete better with its rivals. We recently conducted an exercise to see if we need to move to some other tool for efficiency or cost reasons but in the end we ended up staying with Emptoris, for now. It is little better than other procurement and contracts management suites but not by a big factor.

  • Positive: It controls unnecessary spending and improve transparency. Now suppliers who cannot meet up with demands are easily disqualified from the process. Also helping to stick with just your preferred specs.
