How to drive business value through SAP Ariba’s direct procurement collaboration
Learn How Ariba Supply Chain Collaboration for Direct Procurement Brings Value Through Automation, Visibility, and Scalability
We discussed previously how SAP solutions enable value and resolve pain points in the supply chain planning process. Join the experts from HCL and SAP Ariba in the second webinar in the Ariba series to understand the value which SAP can bring for direct procurement collaboration with your suppliers.
In this session, we’ll focus on the pain points which tend to exist for direct procurement within enterprises today and show you how SAP Ariba can release value to your business by walking through a system demonstration.
Starting from the need to source a material we will show you how the system automatically sends the purchase order to the supplier and how this appears to a supplier on the Ariba Network. We will then show how your organization can then see that the supplier has confirmed the order, when and how they will send the materials to you and how the payment process is carried out. We will then be able to demonstrate the business value this brings to your business.
