Order Confirmation Workflow

An SAP Qualified Partner-Packaged Solution

In SAP Ariba Network, suppliers can create order confirmations that differ from the purchase order. The order confirmation is transferred to the buyer's ERP system, but no one is actively informed about potential differences between the order and the order confirmation. This can lead to a lack of transparency and cause manual effort in identifying discrepancies.
