It is well suited for bigger companies that have many sources for invoices. It is good to automate repetitive tasks/purchases and ensure proper business workflow. It is not very welcoming for the younger generation as they expect much modern interfaces and layouts. It may be not very straightforward for the first time users, which can be avoided by proper training. But wouldn't it be best if the system was intuitive and easier to learn?

  • Pros : Enterprise-wide visibility to contingent
    worker headcount. Automated
    process improves cycle times, reduces manual processes. It's best for customers who already have SAP Ecosystem. Provides a seamless integration to the Clients backend SAP system. Provides advance notification of solution upgrades, patches, and revisions, especially as it relates to cloud hosted solutions. An environment secured against security violations and threats.
  • Cons : Need a good technical and integration with right skillset. The challenge of having a good clean source of Master data. Invoice processing integration and mapping with ERP/SAP needs more improvement. Needs more improvement on cloud based help from user training point of vie.

  • Contingent labor process, starting from the job posting to final candidate onboarding
  • Supplier and Customer collaboration options in the system
  • Configuration options for customers
  • Management of service delivery and service contract setups
  • Option to establish a true end-to-end process (from source2contract to final payment)

Cons

SAP

  • Integration with other tools is not very good. The APIs provided are not scheduled within the Ariba process and must use a middleware to send information back and forth between tools
  • Customer support for configuration questions. The response time can be weeks or months waiting time and the response back is often unhelpful.
  • Flexibility with company entities. With a large company with so many entities it is hard to structure and customize your suppliers into many entities. You often have to duplicate.

  • The simple display and way you navigate the jobs page is not very intuitive. There could be better information displayed than what is there, and it doesn't always make sense in how you move from one page to another.
  • I really don't like the requirement of the last 5 digits of a candidate's social security number for the "Security ID." Some candidates are reluctant to give that out, when paired with their birth day (also required). I'm not sure why this couldn't be a different piece of information - last 5 of the primary phone number, for example.
  • Some of the field are not well-defined. For example. there is a Resume field, then an Attachments field. And the rate section isn't 100% clear, especially when entering overtime rates or discounted rates.

      Again, Fieldglass is a strong contender but Fieldglass can be difficult at times to work with and not as supportive as I'd like. As so, I'd be willing to try Beeline or other top competitors

      Usability

      SAP

      1. We found that SAP Ariba Procurement User Interface is intuitive in nature. For administrators and superuser, the managed area gives access to more contextual information.
      2. End users also have an option to use Guided Buying whose user experience is like end-user applications.
      3. The product also has a rich set of notifications for workflows.
      4. Mobile App further improves the usability of the overall platform from supplier and buyer perspectives.
      5. For handling strategic documents such as contracts, electronic signatures can be done with one click sing DocuSign or Adobe eSign from Ariba screens.

From small configuration changes to overall process changes, support has the teammates in place with excellent knowledge and is able to provide solutions based on business challenges quickly. Their customer support through their Account teams continues to be hands on and very responsive to needs in a timely fashion.

      I have and still use Coupa. Coupa is much less robust in comparison to Ariba. SAP Ariba Procurement has the ability to see what transactions have been sent, the ability to resend cXML Purchase Orders, see a history of what has happened with transactions, much more robust reporting capabilities, etc. SAP Ariba Procurement is 5-10 times better than Coupa in my opinion.

      Great SAP system to use on multiple project data protection and preparation of clear reports and financial analytics gathering the SAP solution is effective. Through the platform, all our project documents are easy to access and upload, and to manage activities and project assets allocated via the platform are excellent.

      Return on Investment

      SAP

      • Improving Broadspectrum's PIFOT for suppliers who have migrated to invoicing through Ariba.
      • Provided a simple end-user interface to support PO creation, which has improved internal business process. This has led to good quality PO's being created upfront, which has reduced unnecessary re-work to ensure invoices are paid on time, and improved the businesses capability to report on real time commitment.
