I would like to highlight that by using this Ariba Contract lifecycle management tool. It is easy to use this software due to its excellent customer support. Drafting, negotiation and electronic signatures never been so easy to use in one system.

With Ariba it was possible to consolidate all suppliers in one network.
  • User friendly
  • Good Support
  • Well Known
  • Expensive
  • Not so responsive in mobile devices
  • Hard to customize
Ariba is well suited for large companies. But for smaller companies, I recommend another software, one not so complex like Ariba because there will be a lot of Ariba's features that a small company won't use

"Ariba Contract Manager reviewed by an Ariba SME"

It's used by the entire organization. The direct spend managers use it as a repository. Indirect spend managers use it linked to other Ariba transactions. It ensures all documentation resides within the same environment and becomes available to users. It also creates visibility to the contracts so other users can leverage existing agreements.
  • It notifies of contract expirations
  • It monitors the spend if the contract is transactable
  • It houses all documents within the same environment
  • Not very intuitive. User has to dig for information throughout the tabs.
  • Documents should have a preview button instead of us having to open each one of them each time.
  • Contracts cannot be added to existing requisitions.

Well suited: when there is an executed agreement with supportind documentation, even if the spend won't be monitored through Ariba, having the contract housed in ACW will allow for auditors to easily find all required documents.

Less appropriate: if there is not a need for an executed agreement and a simple PO/SO can be used as a contract.

I use it only to make financial transactions with a big business entity easier. I only use it for this. I don't market with it because I don't have the kind of business that lends to this kind of marketing. But, it works great for what I need it for.
  • It informs me of when my proposals are approved.
  • It lets me electronically invoice my client.
  • It keeps me up to date on the status of my invoices and when they will be paid.
  • I don't like that they anticipate an annual revenue based on one quarter. Our business is cyclic in nature. This costs us more money in fees than necessary.
  • I never know exactly who to talk to. I've had to figure it out.
  • Set up was a mess. I had several employees that each tried and only one is necessary and when they leave, I have a problem.
If you have a marketing strategy that work well with this forum, Ariba is a good fit. If you have a client that prefers to use this for proposals, invoices, payments, it's a good fit. If you are just starting out and trying to find the right thing - get organized first and maybe this will be a good fit. It may be too robust for really small businesses.

Review: "Ariba Contract Management - Very useful if implementation managed properly"

Score 6 out of 10

It was used to manage all of our contracts across three business units. It was used to digitally house all of our contracts and any pertinent documents.
  • Digitally storing contracts
  • Tying together related documents
  • Users have a lot of flexibility when inputting information. This can cause for confusion when two co-workers file related documents under two different companies: ie. Acme and ACME
Works great to tie related documents together, so that anything related to one master contract can be easily accessed.
