Ariba

Ariba Contract Management is one of the best solution available and if you SAP ERP then I think there is no second thought.

Emptoris

Emptoris is more useful if multiple modules are used simultaneously. For example, we can connect spend analysis and contracts management to generate smart reports and business insights. RFXs can be tied back to contract management and notifications sent out accordingly which helps in efficient vendor management

  • The only thing I would like to see is that is can hold mutiple attachments under the language tab.
  • I would like to see a function that allows all credentialing materials to be attached to Emptoris and sent to the next step as one complete package.

I gave it a 6 because it is not a terrible product. It's just missing some key components to have more acceptance in the sourcing world. Some other issues are the view the vendor sees is not the same view a user would see. However, with a good support team, you can make Emptoris usable and proficient in the sourcing discipline.

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

We do work with other Products in procurement solutions like Coupa, Oracle Procurement Cloud etc.

I would say there are positives and negatives to all. Emptoris seemed to be more advanced in progression of their tool. Others seem to have created a tool to meet a customers need and was not part of their core business model or competency.
