Are you a supplier that has recently been asked by your customer to start transacting business through the Ariba Network? If so, you’re not alone. In the past month or so CCP Global has received several emails from suppliers who have been asked to integrate on the Ariba Network and have no idea where to start. Some aren’t even sure what the Ariba Network is or why supplier integration is important. Here is what you need to know.
Anyone who has every called customer support for their phone or cable company knows how frustrating it is for your support to be outsourced. At CCP Global we have a lot of AMS clients that have come to us after their original AMS partner didn’t work out. This is after they’d already put a lot of time and money into that support system, with less than positive results. Here are three tales from the trenches.
One of the most useful aspects of Ariba procurement solutions is the insight it gives companies in the procurement process and their spending. However, full transparency relies on getting your suppliers enabled on the Ariba Network and that is one of the biggest challenges we find that companies face when trying to fully implement their Ariba solutions.
SAP is a powerful tool for optimizing your business practices, but some companies spend millions to purchase and implement these solutions, without ever fully realizing their value. That’s just one area where application management services (AMS) can help you reap the maximum benefits from your expensive SAP Ariba solutions.
SAP Application Management Services are a common offering by consulting firms that provide SAP and SAP Ariba consulting and support. Traditionally, it has been used as an adjunct to internal staff, but as enterprise applications become more complex, AMS is becoming less of an option and more of a necessity.
As one of SAP Ariba’s original service partners, CCP Global has over 20 years of experience offering SAP Ariba consulting services for more than 300 industry leading companies.
We focus on dynamic implementations with highly efficient teams of 2 to 6 outstanding SAP Ariba experts.
