Overall Satisfaction with Deem

Deem is being used across the organization to build catalogs for vendors. These catalogs are used when vendors enter invoices, through Ariba. Deem communicates with Ariba.
  • Deem communicates with Ariba
  • Deem template is easy to complete and upload
  • Deem allows/requests that the catalogs are reviewed/approved prior to being uploaded into the system
  • Deem could be more user-friendly as far as the flow/sequence of required actions between creating a workflow and publishing the catalog.
  • When refreshing a catalog, I wish we didn't have to save the template in the computer and re-upload it. It would be better if we could edit the spreadsheet and save the subsequent versions directly into Deem, without having to save the file first.
  • It would be a plus if Deem supported pictures in their catalogs.
  • Deem catalog allows for commercial contract terms adherence
  • Deem Catalog provides great spend visibility
  • Deem catalog provides consistency on item descriptions, material codes and prices

Ariba Contract Management

  • Deem catalog has to be created directly into Deem and cannot be created off of Ariba Contract, which would be a nice feature if available


  • Deem catalog feeds into Ariba for invoice creation; Ariba exports the information into SAP ERP and the items description, prices and general ledgers keep their consistency, which is a great feature

Ariba Procurement

  • Deem works well with Ariba and reports ran off Ariba will show catalog spend; the visibility, consistency, and compliance are great benefits.

Well Suited:

  • to use with Ariba
  • to create a consistent catalog list
  • Manage expenses

Less appropriate:

  • as a reporting tool, very limited;
  • cannot change report formatting
  • mobile application
