Drive Compliant Purchasing and Take Control of Costs and Risks

Here’s a puzzler: How can your purchasing system control more costs and risks when you’re juggling different processes on several ERPs, struggling to connect with suppliers near and far, and wrangling with users who want to do things their own way?

Answer: Make procurement as easy as shopping on Amazon.com.

With Ariba’s procurement software, worldwide supplier network, and global support you can automate all or part of your procure-to-pay process, regardless of your backend ERP, purchasing, or spend-generating system. Users get a fast, consumer-like shopping experience, while you get:

  • Control over all goods and services purchasing
  • Better collaboration with your suppliers
  • Negotiated savings reaching the bottom line
  • Time to engage in more strategic activities

 

Optimize the Entire P2P Cycle or Just Part of It

You can improve the speed, performance, reach, and usability of any or all steps in your buying process. That is, the entire procure-to-pay cycle for goods and services, or just procure-to-order, or just content—seamlessly integrated with any ERP.
