Ariba

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

Icertis

Good for standard contracting processes that involve your forms and a set approach.Not as flexible for situations involving customer paper and processes that are less strict.Not good for proposals and RFP projects, which often do not result in a contract at that stage.

Icertis

  • A good way to organize your contracts by type/business line/etc.
  • Contract provision library is useful for reviewers of contracts - helps standardize language and approach.

Cons

Ariba

  • Not very intuitive. User has to dig for information throughout the tabs.
  • Documents should have a preview button instead of us having to open each one of them each time.
  • Contracts cannot be added to existing requisitions.

Icertis

  • Some features are unnecessarily limiting. For example, the inability to delete records or change fields later if it turns out there has been a mistake in how the contract was entered or the term was described. The Icertis form fields are NOT the contract record that is required to be kept. If someone makes an error, they should be able to fix it. The contract itself doesn't change, and that is the business record.
  • Too much is built on the assumption that the person requesting the contract is the one with the control or ownership of the contract. It would be better if the person to whom the contract is submitted for review was the owner in the system.
  • Not all requests will in fact end with a contract. Sometimes requests are started and the project is abandoned or put on hold for a period of time. More status fields that reflect the reality of contracting would be helpful.

Alternatives Considered

Ariba

We looked at other sourcing systems but none suited our global presence and moreso being a SAP customer with several modules this made perfect sense.

Icertis

I think that all three of these platforms are solid products. I was not the decision maker in choosing Icertis over the other two products - that was handled by our IT department.

Return on Investment

Ariba

  • Better compliancy
  • The best business case for using Ariba is the savings you could archive after doing a Spend Analysis
  • Bids more competitives

Icertis

  • Too new to product to have ROI estimates. Less than 1 year of implementation. But, I would say we have better ways to track our existing agreements with this tool.
