Cons

  • Ariba Procurement could be more user-friendly. Currently, it requires at least 1-hour to train external users to enter their own invoices in the system.
  • Ariba Procurement could improve on the eSourcing module, making it simpler for suppliers to gain access and participate in the events.
  • Ariba Procurement could improve the SAP > Ariba communication. Certain actions done in SAP are not communicated back to Ariba.
  • The Credit Memo process could improve. When credits are created (CM-CWT) they are reflected in Ariba, but SAP does not fund the actual order.

  • Implementation timeline
  • Seemingly having to customize every customer

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.

Return on Investment

  • It's helped in reducing supply chain operational costs.
  • Positive: It's cut down on unintended cash flows having a better and formalized payment terms.
  • 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.

  • We won the 2005 Baseline Magazine Award for best ROI related to a technology implementation with an ROI 5544% (see 2005 Baseline ROI Awards, GlaxoSmithkline).
  • We always felt we could do "two times the work, with half the people and deliver double the savings".
