The Ariba Network

More than just a supplier network, it’s the world’s business commerce network. Now you can collaborate with any company, anytime, anywhere.

Discover, Connect, and Collaborate in the World’s Largest Trading Partner Community

Every two minutes, a business joins the Ariba Network. That’s one more potential buying or selling opportunity just waiting to be discovered — a trading partner with whom you could connect and collaborate through a single platform in the cloud to lower costs or risks, boost revenue, or manage cash and working capital.

Right now, there are more than 1. 6 million to discover, doing business in 190 countries around the world. Over the next 24 hours they’ll:

  • Transact nearly $1.64 billion in business commerce
  • Exchange nearly 110,000 purchase orders and more than 178,000 invoices
  • Collaborate on early-payment discounts involving $30 million worth of invoices
