SAP Ariba Contract Management contract management is well suited for complex service engagements as it can adapt to any level of complexity, and it provides flexibility to incorporate different milestones and pricing terms For simple and low-value contracts, it is too advanced as few of the elements cannot be skipped, making it more complex.

Cons
SAP
  • the numbering is limited to contract workspace or CW#, if it is used to RFP, numbers can be RFP# and not CW#
  • for extension, it is nice to have a alphanumeric than numeric only
  • contract term attributes does not need to have an email recipient , the budget owner & issuer are the email recipients

Overall support has been reasonable with SAP Ariba Contract Management, however, I would have preferred localized support as it will have a better connection in the EMEA region.

This was the program that our vendors selected so we have used this one. I had a client that used Beeline but that felt clunky compared to SAP Ariba Contract Management. You had a lot more hoops to jump through with Beeline. SAP Ariba Contract Management definitely is easier to use
