Ariba

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

Oracle E-Business Suite

Oracle E-Business Suite Procurement Contracts is well suited for creating various contract templates based on whether or not you are doing construction work, non-construction work, lease and rentals, engineering services or I.T. services.You can build a set of questions to help guide your users to select the appropriate template or clause but we elected not to go that route.

Pros

  • SAP Ariba has Ariba Supply Chain Network that makes Suppliers/Vendors/Buyers onboarding very easy. Ariba Contract Management is very well integrated with Ariba network and hence sharing contractual documents and information are very easy.
  • SAP Ariba provide integration with SAP ERP which takes out the effort needed to integrate Ariba with SAP.
  • Ariba exposes API and ITK to do integration if your ERP is none SAP.

  • Each document goes out the door with a specific set of terms and conditions
  • All of our service work which we do a lot of has its own unique set of terms and conditions
  • Material purchases have their own set of terms and conditions

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.

  • Our lawyer has had trouble editing the clauses through WORD
  • We have not utilized all of the functionality within the product
  • We didn't want our buyers picking and choosing from a library of clauses to build a set of terms and conditions. Instead our lawyer has already done the heavy lifting by including everything in one contract template

Oracle E-Business Suite Procurement Contracts has served us well. I don't see us changing anything.

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.

The product was selected before I came into this position. I am not sure what else was looked at.

Return on Investment

  • Don't use it for Contract Management - only for proposals and invoicing.
Katherine McGookey profile photo
  • Increased employee efficiency
  • Ensuring we have reduced our risk by having the correct set of terms and conditions on every PO we create
