  • Maintaining contracts as Templates, This feature has helped business to simplify the contract language maintenance and also helped simplify the maintenance of clause related elements that will be used across the product.
  • Easy way to create the contracts, Emptoris has provided the easy ways to create the contracts. We dont need any expertise for creating a contract , with interview module any one can do so by answering a simple set of questions.
  • Monitoring, This is the best feature I can really count on. The monitoring of the contract is made very easy with the simple configurations and can be monitored in different ways like workflows, email etc.
  • MS word as a plugin for editing the language, this is another best feature. Editng of contract language can be done by opening the contract language in a word document . It is a simple process - open, edit, save and close. This saves to Emptoris templates.

Cons

  • The only point I can think that Ariba can improve is the performance issue. Sometimes it is getting very slow. Other than that Ariba functions very well.
  • In Ariba, assigning facilitators and monitors needs to be simplified.
  • The customer support team should have more admin rights.

  • Sometimes the software can be a little slow.
  • Possibly create a short cut when certain addresses/name don't have be inputted so many times. Create an auto-entry.

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 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.
