Conga Composer

There are so many opportunities to use Conga, and that's what I love about it. We use it for a few of our documents, but now I've become aware of how many more of our processes we can move from manual entry to automative processes. It's probably well suited for organizations that use word documents, write ups, and other items- probably wouldn't be well suited for organizations just needing to see the numbers

SAP Ariba Contract Management

If you have or work for a company that needs to manage lots of contracts at once, keeping track of each of them, it's the perfect tool needed in your business. Ariba Contract Management allows you to have a complete control over all your procurement contracts in an easy going, friendly platform. Would totally recommend it for small or large business that manage lots of procurement or sales contracts

Pros

Conga Composer

  • We use Conga primarily for document generation.
  • An example is Generation of Proposals
  • Another example is generation of quotes
  • We have also used Conga to generate invoices
  • At times we have used Conga to generate formal documents for Govt purposes. Essentially any type of document that is based on Salesforce data is a good use case for Conga.

SAP Ariba Contract Management

  • 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.

Cons

Conga Composer

  • While it is a much easier experience than using code to arrive at a document solution, it can still get VERY technical. Beyond the click and drag style of document that you see in the demonstrations.
  • When it goes wrong, finding out WHERE it has gone wrong can be maddening. There is a lot of support out there but that sometimes translates to a vast amount of options to investigate when troubleshooting.
Simon Whight | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Ariba Contract Management

  • 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.

It's a big part of what we do internally, so would renew as it saves us time and is part of our process. In order to switch we'd need a good price break with same functions available

Alternatives Considered

Conga Composer

We chose Conga due to the price point (cost for licenses). It was among the more affordable options but we did not have to sacrifice quality. In addition, the integration with Salesforce is key for us. We are able to connect student interactions and actions with our mailings. We also like how it is user friendly
Wendy Hamstra-Smith | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Ariba Contract Management

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.

Return on Investment

Conga Composer

  • It provided a consistent quote template...everyone's quotes looked like we wanted them to.
  • It protected data integrity by controlling the output formats (i.e. PDF vs. Word).
  • It worked seamlessly behind the scenes making it easy for the team to be self sufficient generating documents.
Rick Scouffas | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Ariba Contract Management

  • ROI is spread over a longer term than we originally expected
  • Implementation cost is high
  • Certainly improved efficiency overall and better vendor management and digital enablement
  • Eco system is growing and scalable
