Choose between the standard account and the enterprise account

As an Ariba Network supplier, you have two choices in Ariba Network accounts. The right one for you is based on your business model and how you think you can best achieve your e-commerce and sales goals.

1. Standard account: Basic functionality, completely free for suppliers

Use familiar e-mail tools to transact with customers digitally while reducing costs. Plus, gain visibility into when you can expect payment from your customers. With the standard account, you can:

  • Collaborate on contracts
  • Receive orders and send invoices
  • Track invoice and payment status
  • Transact an unlimited number of documents
  • Use a centralized portal for all Ariba Network transactions

2. Enterprise account: Advanced capabilities to transform your business

An enterprise account provides everything the standard account offers, plus ways to grow and strengthen your business through Ariba Network. With the enterprise account, you can transform your operations with full ERP integration, leading to automated workflows, faster sales and fulfillment cycles, and reduced errors. Additional advantages include:

  • Supplier-managed catalogs
  • Unlimited RFP responses through SAP Ariba Discovery
  • Supply chain collaboration
  • Priority customer support

Enterprise Account Subscriptions and Fees

Enterprise account subscription levels and fees are determined by the number of documents and volume of transactions your business runs through Ariba Network. As your transaction level on Ariba Network increases, the value your business receives will also rise, and your fees will adjust accordingly. The value you receive from being an Ariba Network supplier will always be greater than the fees you incur. To learn more, download a datasheet for your region:
