SAP Ariba Procurement

Although SAP Ariba supplier platform has its faults, the overall process and management of the documents and notifications on the platform make it an absolute essential tool to a supplier. Added to that the Discovery option where suppliers have the ability to build their revenue by responding to RFPs that are published matching their organisations capabilities seems like a winner. Tapping into a vast network can only bring good things to any supplier.

I would recommend it in the case that you have an SAP system with SAP BW, and you have straightforward needs of planning. SAP Integrated Business Planning is quite hard to make it flexible, so the more you get stuck to standard and avoid FOX language programming, the better. That is why I recommend it in simple scenarios, rather than in complex ones.

Cons

SAP Ariba Procurement

  • Ariba Connect Support - with the exception of the few, the general responses from a Support Request has the engineer repeat the issue at hand with the first response, request for additional examples on the second, then attempt to close the ticket with the third, citing that the system behaviour is OOTB or 'as designed'. No real investigation is undertaken until there has been multiple responses, or the SR has been escalated to an specialist engineer.
  • Ariba should have better functionality for a supplier to route PO's to specific branches (different email addresses) within their organisation without the need for a full integration or through the use of email routing rules.
  • Provide a more thorough process when a supplier upgrades from a Standard to Enterprise account. Currently suppliers are misled into upgrading to an enterprise account without any formal confirmation from Ariba to ensure that the supplier understands why, or even that they upgrading. This, coupled with the only option to pay outstanding invoices to downgrade, discredits Ariba and the Buyers reputation in the marketplace, and introduces significant P2P implications if re-enabling the supplier through a new account is undertaken as a work round.

  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.

Customer support has always been top notch. 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.

Alternatives Considered

SAP Ariba Procurement

I will recommend ARIBA however some good points related with ContractWorks (which I do not have such a big experience with)
  • it has powerful automation features that reduce the administrative load of users.
  • its entire storage system is searchable so users can find the data they need with ease.
  • administrators can set unique access permissions for each user.

The system was in place before I start in the company, so I do not have visibility on alternatives
