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.

PeopleSoft eProcurement

PeopleSoft ePro is well suited for large organizations with specialized purchasing needs with a significant item catalog and multiple punchout vendors. If sole sourced or specialized vendors are the standard for purchasing, ePro may not be suitable for the organization. Smaller organizations with fewer buyers and requisitioners may not benefit enough from the module to make it worthwhile versus licensing costs.

Pros

  • It supports strategic solutions such as 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.
  • It helps in selection and ordering, purchase order approval and delivery and billing.

  • Punching out to vendors' websites - this is a significant strength as it allows users to have the shopping experience within the ordering process while remaining "in" PeopleSoft
  • Approval Process - the approval process for ePro is robust and configurable enough to meet our organization's approval requirements
  • Options - the ePro options are many and the ability to configure those options allows for the requisitioning process to fit the needs of our organization instead of the other way around

Cons

  • 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.

  • Once the initial approval is granted the current system is not setup to send any follow-up notification around additional approvals or order completion. This creates somewhat of a surprise effect on when an order will actually be made or delivered.
  • Due to the volume of accounts that can be entered, there are limited restrictions for someone to entered an incorrect cost center or even one they do not own.
  • Is not mobile friendly and must be logged into the organization's network to access the internal PeopleSoft platform.

I am aware of better systems, but this is what the employer I work for has to offer. Overall, there are fewer negatives than positives so I would support the usability. New staff members can quickly obtain access and go through a 5-10 minute training video that we build in house. The speed at which someone can become a proficient user speaks to the usability of ePro.

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.

PeopleSoft is a straight forward system that allows greater customization and communicates better with the rest of the organization's business tools. Concur is a "newer" system with a better user interface, but has proven to provide an even slower processing speed due to the numerous hierarchical approval settings. For this reason, Concur is only used for travel and expense purposes rather than invoicing or purchasing.

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.

  • PeopleSoft ePro has signficantly reduced the amount of purchasing department effort in coordinating special orders, placing orders directly with vendors through punchout and allowing a quality front end to the business units for submission of requisitions
  • The Approval framework is robust and has allowed for a streamlined and consistent approval process across the entire organization
  • The significant investment in the implementation of ePro has paid off over time by vastly improved user experience, however this is due to the long timeframe that we have had ePro implemented. If we had a lesser length of time this may not have been worthwhile but for our organization it has been.
