Ariba Spend Management Review

Overall my experience using Ariba has been positive and I enjoy using it. It is only the transaction search option that needs to be improved

Pros

Ariba is very easy to use for managing and approving transactions. The software is somehow integrated with our financial institution making easy to track company expenses.

Cons

The system is not "search friendly" and I find it hard to find certain credit card purchases. This is especially hard when the transaction is already approved or expired.

Ariba

I have been using this software with invoices to create Purchase Orders. It’s very easy to keep track of all of the invoices and their statuses. Depending on your company’s finance team, it takes a while for your pending invoices to be approved but are able to see who you need approval from to be able to follow up.

Pros

Submitting an invoice is fairly easy to learn and quite repetitive so a lot of copy and paste. You are able to keep track of everything

Cons

Learning curve from different softwares. You have to learn the language of the system compared of others that are easier to understand but easy to use once you learn

Interesting Product

Pros

I like the ease of use amongst modules. The Ariba Spend Management Suite makes the managing of spend easy and allows you to have a robust procurement offering for your organization if configured properly. It can be a pretty awesome application when everything is in sync.

Cons

The customer support and sometimes the way that modules had to be configured didn't make sense. If you were an organization that wanted to use a particular feature sometimes you had to buy modules like P2P and Contract Management together to use feature even though you needed nothing else in the contract management module. The customer support was laughable when issues arise and talking with the front end support is usually futile. I'm also not a fan of their release procedures.
