“Useful but not so clear”

OverallAriba Spend Management Suite is in general a good software. That's very useful to avoid any lack of information between the owner of the project and users and that's a good instrument to record all the messages exchanged between the parties. Let's say it can be used to do things in a right and fair way.
ProsAriba Spend Management Suite is a software that could be very useful to manage, for example, a tender. You can have there the whole information of the project divided by sections and the possibility to download contents or upload attachments. That's a good option to be always in touch with all the participants of the tender (as organizator) or to receive live updates for any change the tender could have.
ConsWhat it is not properly comfortable of this software is that, when the owner of the project modify something in Ariba Spend Management Suite (add some attachment, etc.), the user gets an email that simply say that "something as changed" but without no details regarding what exactly changed. This is quite unconfrotable because then the user needs to check the whole content of the project and compare it with what downloaded previously, in order to understand what changed. This is a huge waste of time IMO.

“We are leaving this and moving our accounting to Maximo”

OverallWe are leaving this software and will soon be using Maximo for all of our accounting purposes. It is always good to learn something new.
ProsOnly used it for accounting purposes and after a learning curve it was okay. I know it has more functionality that we used.
ConsThe accounting system was not user friendly. No training by our company. I understand that it is a very expensive software.

“Speed needs to improve”

OverallI could search a particular detail with ease as it has various filters to choose from.
ProsI can enter all the information before processing a payment and I am alerted if an important information is missing or isn't a routine.
ConsSoftware is a bit slow, there have been times where outages were experienced, thus increasing the work-load post outage.

“Not easy to use. And customer help didn't come easy.”

OverallThe benefits we receive is that it allows us to pay our bills with ease.
ProsThe way It allows us to pay our bills makes it a good program to use. If and only if we have that company already added into our system.
ConsThe customer help didn't come easy. The addition of new vendors to the program was a pain. And getting more information from customer service was like pulling teeth.

“Buggy, Slow & Backwards”

OverallI have working with SAP Ariba for some time and unfortunately I cannot recommend the software to any of my clients, as it is very slow.
Pros- SAP Ariba is organized, well structured and quite OK for small companies
Cons- Major problem: It is very slow - It is hard to customize - Buggy UI - Does not work for big procurement projects (> 2000 parts for example)

“Effective ERP tool for procurement”

OverallThis software acts as stand-alone system. Ease to use cloud based ERP. Integration can be done in many ways and can be done complete automated solution. Have sourcing, contracts, supplier information and performance management, spend analysis as upstream solutions. PO - invoice automation, catalogs (CIF and punch-out), ACC as its down stream solutions and Many more advantages.
