SAP Ariba Snap: A Snapshot of Your Business Benefits

Optimized Procurement

Especially in purchasing-intensive industries like retail and mechanical engineering, the profit lies in purchasing. Which is why successful companies combine their purchases within a centralized tool that allows them to simplify and standardize all processes. It is an invaluable asset – especially in the case of international supply chains – for minimizing risk and monitoring supplier performance. The global SAP Ariba Snap business network allows SMEs to quickly find the right suppliers for all manner of requirements and manage the entire procure-to-pay process in a highly efficient way.

Close Cooperation with Suppliers

SAP Ariba Snap provides the perfect way of cooperating with suppliers and integrating them directly in your procurement process. Arrange discussions on how to further optimize products and services, for example, or set individual performance targets. Use this convenient feature to also clarify specific order details with potential suppliers, identify optimization potential, and prevent supply shortfalls.

Cost-Efficient Purchasing

You will find it easier than ever to meet your cost targets with SAP Ariba Snap. Your employees will use a consistent database (single source of truth) containing all information on suppliers, spending, and agreements. This total transparency will enable you to act more efficiently and manage spending much more effectively based on categories.

You will be able to buy only from approved suppliers with suitable master agreements – which prevents unauthorized spending by employees in individual departments. Studies show that companies who keep purchasing strictly within existing master agreements spend 40% less than their competitors.

Effective Supplier Negotiations

SAP Ariba Snap will give you 24/7 access to a global network of approved suppliers: around 2.5 million suppliers are already registered in our network and over 100,000 new suppliers sign up every quarter. This huge selection combined with transparent services and costs will put you in a better negotiating position with your suppliers.

Standardization, Transparency, and Control

Establish tight controls and standardized processes with SAP Ariba Snap. Many steps in the procure-to-pay process can be easily automated – including daily purchase requisitions, digital transactions from ordering to paying, and monitoring discounts. You can keep constant track of individual supplier performance – along with spending and generated savings – in a transparent way.
