SAP Ariba’s sourcing solution provides efficient sourcing of services, indirect materials, and direct materials.
To negotiate best-value sourcing agreements – the kind that provide sustainable savings – a strategic sourcing environment is needed.
Procurement challenges pose a number of tasks for companies in many industries: starting with the procurement project, working with suppliers, comparing offers, and integrating auctions of various types.
By initiating a collaborative RFP project and utilizing the Ariba Network’s software, customers can engage with thousands of suppliers and submit their bids. Customers can compare the offers transparently and, if necessary, integrate auctions into the procurement process, for example.
With tight integration in the Ariba Network and connections to more than 4.6 million companies, the SAP Ariba Sourcing and SAP Ariba Strategic Sourcing Suite provide features to start a sourcing project, collaborate with vendors, compare offers and integrate auctions of different kinds.
The sourcing processes can be simplified by using a single solution for all of your expense categories – services, indirect materials and direct materials. The integration in contracts and operational P2P procurement allows the user to transfer the sourcing offer into a contract and a related purchase order within one solution.
