Fulfill orders faster and strengthen customer relationships

As a supplier on Ariba Network – now SAP Business Network – you can receive purchase orders from your customers digitally and take immediate actions right from your account to:

  • Process, change, confirm, and cancel orders
  • Create ship notices
  • Create full or partial invoices from the order

Managing your orders through SAP Business Network can strengthen your customer relationships and streamline collaboration. Your customers can receive immediate, real-time notifications whenever you respond to an order. These automated order updates can save you time and reduce errors from manual data entry. Both you and your customers can use intuitive dashboards on the network to get better visibility into order status and details.
