Ariba

I would like to highlight that by using this Ariba Contract lifecycle management tool. It is easy to use this software due to its excellent customer support. Drafting, negotiation and electronic signatures never been so easy to use in one system.

Coupa

My use of Coupa revolves around submitting invoices from different vendors I work with. Once submitting an invoice, Coupa will go through an approval chain that gets to the right people. Everything is logged in Coupa and it keeps track of the budget and spend well for our organization.

Cons

  • The expense reporting feature could be improved, specifically relating to itemizing portions of expenses.
  • The ability to batch download invoices would be great

Alternatives Considered

Ariba Contract Management is more user friendly than SAP. It does not have all the interative functionalities that Ariba has, such as the approval flows, etc. It is easier to train users to use Ariba Contract Management than it is to use SAP. Ariba is more affordable than the SAP licenses.

Coupa does well compared to its competitors. Coupa has an easy to use interface. It's an all cloud based, SaaS. Reporting in Coupa is also above the competition. Coupa also requires less maintenance, upgrades are automatic and we don't need to worry about being on the latest version. Coupa is one of the top vendors in the space!
