SAP

The configuration for Ariba is very manual so I wouldn’t recommend it for a large company with a large web of approval flows. Setting it up and testing is extremely manual and has plenty of room for error while transferring it over into a production realm. Nothing is inherent with the tool and the documentation can be helpful when you find what you need. Searching for the answers may take a while because the customer support does not respond quickly, SAP connect does not have a great search engine to find documentation, and the answers received from support are not in depth. This is a learn on your own tool.

Zip

Zip can be used for routing all vendor-level approvals for new vendors and all renewals across our organization. It can also be helpful for managing all purchases from existing vendors. For non-spend related approvals, it’s not as well suited. Zip was definitely designed for procurement workflows. They also have a vendor management portal that links up directly to something like NetSuite for management and visibility.

Cons

SAP

  • Service POs would be ideal so that we can address Fieldglass Work Orders.
  • Multiple Company codes allowed on a single PO would allow our company to function better.
  • Allowing updates to a Fieldglass PO directly in the UI versus forcing a user to go back to Fieldglass.

Zip

  • Zip [Intake-to-Procure] could use better commenting capabilities, more flexibility in its dashboard, and could integrate more broadly into our GRC systems.

      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.

      Support Rating

      SAP

      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

      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.

      Truth be told, we haven’t seen any other similar products. The alternative was manually tracking in Google Sheets, ticketing systems, and in NetSuite. Coupa was probably the closest in terms of what we were looking for but they were not willing to fit it to our needs like Zip was able to.

      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.
