SAP Ariba Buying & Invoicing
The complete solution for indirect procurement
SAP Ariba Buying & Invoicing is the module of the SAP Ariba solution portfolio with the focus on indirect procurement. The solution features an appealing user interface, that offers an integrated search via internal and external catalogs and the possibility to access the Mercateo Unite marketplace via the functionality called Spot Buy and a transparent release workflow for the procurement of goods and services in accordance with company-specific procurement guidelines.
Native integration into the Ariba Network, the world's largest and fastest growing business network, enables the digital exchange of orders, order confirmations and invoices. You can also use the invoicing function for invoice verification. The no-touch rate is constantly increased by predefined deviation rules and workflow definitions.
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.
The Guided Buying user interface is a particular highlight. It 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.
