Eliminate siloed, manual processes with the leading business network

SAP Business Network, formerly known to millions of companies around the world as Ariba Network, makes it easy for buyers and suppliers to collaborate on transactions, strengthen their relationships, and discover new business opportunities.

  • Buyers can automate the entire procurement process from source to settle, while controlling spending, finding new sources of savings, and building a healthy, ethical supply chain.
  • Suppliers can help buyers achieve their procurement transformation goals, collaborating in the cloud to boost customer satisfaction, simplify the sales cycle, and improve cash flow.

Now, with access to more solutions and services from SAP, businesses that have long benefited from the power and reach of Ariba Network can go further to facilitate collaboration with even more trading partners – including direct materials suppliers, logistics and services providers, asset operators, and maintenance contractors – for unparalleled supply chain visibility, agility, and resiliency.

Additional capabilities provide suppliers greater value

If you need more advanced capabilities like enhanced order and invoice experiences, priority and expert support, or the efficiencies afforded by integration with your ERP, an enterprise account would be the better choice. It offers everything the standard account does, plus additional ways to grow and strengthen your business. You can:

  • Manage all your orders and invoices directly on SAP Business Network
  • Submit unlimited RFP responses through SAP Business Network Discovery
  • Stay updated with supply chain collaboration
  • Receive priority customer support
  • Publish supplier-managed catalogs with assistance

Enterprise account subscription levels and fees are determined by the number of documents and volume of transactions your business runs through the network. As your transaction level on SAP Business Network increases, the value your business receives will also rise, and your fees will adjust accordingly.
