SAP Ariba Buying
The lean solution for indirect procurement
SAP Ariba Buying is based on the SAP Ariba Buying & Invoicing solution, although, does not include the invoicing module. Like "the big sister", the solution has an appealing user interface, an integrated search via internal and external catalogs and the option of accessing the Mercateo Unite marketplace via Spot Buy. The transparent approval workflow for the procurement of goods and services can be defined in accordance with company-specific procurement guidelines.
In addition, purchase orders, order confirmations and invoices can be exchanged paperless via the SAP Ariba Network. Integration with an existing SAP ECC or SAP S/4HANA system is realised via standardised interfaces, such as Cloud Integration Gateway (CIG), or a native integration to automatically synchronise master and transaction data.
A special highlight is the Guided Buying user interface, which enables purchasing departments to guide end users through the procurement process, including predefined forms and guidelines. Guided Buying thus increases user-friendliness and contributes to cost savings.
