SAP Ariba Contract Management

SAP Ariba Contract Management is suited for big organizations that manage probably a zillion contracts a lot number of suppliers and need the system to be accessed by folks who range both from a diverse variety of functions as well as roles in terms of need for looking up, editing or executing contracts. It would be less suitable for smaller companies or one off applications or use for contract management as its somewhat tedious to use.

Scout RFP

Scout RP is wonderful to help keep an RFP very organized. It is excellent to have a single version, so that all team members helping compile an RFP response have a single place to know that they are on the current version. If a company doesn't want to respond within Scout RFP, it's my understanding that the RFP information can be exported from Scout RFP, compiled in a different tool (like XLS), and then pulled back into Scout RFP for submission.From a collaboration standpoint, there's not an easy way to "assign" questions or items. Sometimes at my company, we need different experts to answer different questions. We have to use another tool, like email or Slack, to let that person know he/she needs to answer. However, in other tools, a certain block can be assigned to the person internally within the tool.

Cons

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.
Prabhjyot Singh | TrustRadius Reviewer

Scout RFP

  • No way to flag where I need an internal colleague to review or add to an answer
  • No way to assign items to an internal team member for that person to answer a question
  • No status bar of the remaining items not yet answered

Overall, I would say that for large organizations that have their ERP based on SAP, ARIBA is indispensable to maintain as the plan of record system to store, manage and ensure legal and controls compliance of the contracts of the company with suppliers and customers. It is relatively very powerful in terms of the different tasks that can be executed through it, though it is not very user friendly and can be difficult to use if you are new.

I would say overall support is just OK as it's mainly through the SAP account team and I am not aware of any specific or special support for this particular application. Also, the help features are more or less non-existent.

Alternatives Considered

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.
Adriana Paez | TrustRadius Reviewer

Scout RFP

I have only used RFPIO to facilitate searching for RFP answers. I have used Scout RFP only to respond to customer RFPs. I assume they have functional overlap, but my interactions with each have not included this functional overlap. For each tool's respective use, I have found them very simple, intuitive, and helpful.

Return on Investment

SAP Ariba Contract Management

  • ARIBA has a positive impact on business continuity, maintaining legal and controls compliance, and helps us identify opportunities for savings and cost reductions.
  • It also helps lower the headcount that would have otherwise been needed to maintain similar compliance.
  • It is available across departments and functions that boost coordination and thus saves time and provides velocity.
Abhinav Gupta, CSCP | TrustRadius Reviewer

Scout RFP

  • Ease of responding to RFPs and winning business
  • I don't have visibility into whether we have an actual $$$ of deals closed where we responded to the RFP within Scout RFP
  • Other departments of my company may use Scout RFP for sending out RFPs and collecting RFP responses, thus reducing costs to issue RFPs
