Ariba Sourcing Solutions

Source Indirect and Direct Materials

In today’s globalized world, enterprises recognize the value of well-run and efficient supply chains. However, organizations struggle to have up-to-date information about their suppliers, which can prevent them from achieving their full potential. Unfortunately, there have not been many solutions available for sourcing indirect and direct materials that also manage the source-to-contract process. Separate processes can drive up IT costs and increase contract leakage. It can also limit a business’s savings and lead to missed communication between internal teams. SAP Ariba’s Strategic Sourcing Suite provides companies the tools to lower costs, improve quality, and enhance performance across their entire supply chains.
