What is SAP Ariba?

Your organization needs more from procurement. As business moves faster and faster, more spending is happening across more channels using more payment methods than ever before. And your customers are demanding more from the organizations they buy from and work with. They want more speed, better quality, the best experience, and full transparency into the impact you and your suppliers are making on the world.

It’s up to procurement and supply chain managers to continue to control all the costs, manage the risks buried in your transactions, and do it all while making sure process doesn’t slow down progress. Using SAP Ariba solutions and SAP Business Network – market leaders in spend management software – you can equip your company to be responsive and responsible, both today and in the future:

  • Buyers can manage the entire purchasing process as they control spending, find new sources of savings on both direct and indirect goods, and build healthy, ethical supply chains
  • Suppliers can connect with profitable customers and efficiently scale existing relationships, simplifying sales cycles and improving cash control along the way.
