The SAP Ariba Difference

SAP Ariba provides buyers, such as this smiling executive, with a dynamic, guided experience

Achieve full transparency into spending

Capture data and classify it according to your company and industry standards, then enrich it with market intelligence for insights into company-wide spending. Uncover buying trends with integrated solutions, linked data sources, and augmented analytics. Run what-if scenarios to improve planning and create leaner, flexible, and compliance-boosting processes. Increase both the quality and speed of decisions across your organization by giving buyers – and suppliers – near-real-time visibility into the purchase process from end to end.

Provide a dynamic, guided experience

Improve adoption and compliance with a simple, guided-buying solution that employees will use. Serve up customized suppliers, commodities, and processes for each user. They can find in one place everything they need – including unsourced goods – and save time with an automated approval process. You can even employ machine learning to avoid purchasing items from a bill of materials that aren’t on contract: SAP Ariba automatically finds sourced materials that are similar and suggests the best alternatives to buyers.
