A consistent user interface and shared master data are just the beginning

With SAP Ariba intelligent spend management solutions, you can tie together more than 30 processes and incorporate comprehensive transaction data to deliver greater efficiency, accuracy, and control every step of the way, from source to pay.

When we work with you to create and integrate your supplier management, strategic sourcing, procurement, and financial supply chain management processes, you can:

  1. Ensure negotiated savings reach your bottom line
  2. Guide employees to buy from the right suppliers at the right prices
  3. Effectively and efficiently manage cost accounting and payments

What's more, when you choose SAP Ariba you can take advantage of business process integrations with SAP S/4 HANA. This enables you to effectively and efficiently manage cost accounting and payments, plus do in-depth spend analysis, because all of your spending data is integrated with all of your other spending and financial information, all in one place.

Integrate your direct spend processes

Seamlessly integrate your direct spend procurements processes with your Product Lifecycle Management, ERP, and SAP Integrated Business Planning systems. You’ll have greater supplier collaboration capability to bring to market what customers want, faster and more efficiently. Source multi-level BOMs on a single platform. Integrate production steps to progress simultaneously. And collaborate with multiple tiers of suppliers to manage your non-linear and external supply chains to increase fill rates and ensure you can satisfy customers when they’re ready to buy.

Provide buyers 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.

Learn about guided buying

Achieve full transparency into spending

Capture data and classify it according to your company and industry standards, then enrich it with market intelligence and machine learning for insights into company-wide spending. Uncover buying trends with integrated solutions, linked data sources, and augmented analytics. Stay ahead of spending, running 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.
