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.

SAP Business One

SAP is well suited for businesses with a large amount of inventory to track, businesses with a massive customer/vendor database, etc. However, SAP Business One can be a little pricy, and for very small companies I would not recommend it. Potential buyers should ask questions about importing information from a prior system because this process can take a long-time to switch from an older system.

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.
Adriana Paez profile photo
  • At times, the on-premise deployment can be a tad slow
  • Not the cheapest price option
  • Maybe too much software for true small business

Our institution is a member of the SAP University Alliance. We have chosen to use SAP Business One in our Management Information Systems and Accounting Information Systems classes for seven years, because the students can use the product quickly and come to understand the functionality and integration that an ERP system has to offer.

Being a high profile tool, a user level with specific experience and skills is required to use the program. Which deserves special attention in the junior staff, requires a good management of the administrative part to develop all the benefits of the program. For young and inexperienced people the interface is not flashy. Although it is a very complete program.

Over the past two years SAP has added a great deal of new SAP Business One on-line training for version 9.0 and 9.1. Most of the training is very strong, but some is difficult to understand and follow. Additionally, SAP still has a few holes in their on-line training around Production, Bill-of-Materials, MRP and Service.

Conduct interviews with the administrative and accounting areas, ask about the experience with the tool, make free test modules to detect the possibilities of use, as well as, validate the necessary investment for the implementation of the program with the system area, to determine if it is the most viable option

SAP B1 does not have the same functionality that SAP ERP has, which would be more beneficial for the type of business we are in, but because we are not large enough, it would not be cost effective. Upgrading to SAP All in One would eventually be a better functional solution for our company in the future because of our size, and the various types of oilfield services we provide.

For most small businesses, the only way you outgrow SAP Business One is if the nature of your business changes radically. Going from 1 to 50 users is quite easy with SAP B1. Going beyond 50 may require moving to the Hana SAP B1 platform to maintain or improve performance, but the path is there.
Add-ons to SAP B1 can also be added as specific needs are encountered that are not closely met by the standard product. These may be required early in the product life because of the nature of your business, or as you expand the use of SAP B1.

Return on Investment

  • Ariba Procurement had a very positive impact on spend visibility and reporting capabilities.
  • Ariba Procurement helps the business stay in compliance because it can track its users' release monetary authority and roles.
  • Ariba Procurement had a positive impact on audit capability, as all supporting documents, contracts, approvals, comments, invoices, etc., can be found within the system.
Adriana Paez profile photo
  • SAP Business One dramatically reduces the time of communication between the departments in the company.
  • The possibilities for the users to make their own reports (at least the simple ones), reduces the cost of the consulting you will need, although some consulting will always be needed at the start of the project if you don't have an in-house team.
  • All the processes in sales and purchase departments are greatly improved in our company, so users can spend more time analyzing information and scenarios, and less time doing routinary work and data input.
