Ordering from a catalog, what could be easier?
To reach an efficient and user-friendly purchasing process for your entire organisation, Catalog Management is of crucial importance. Can your employees make an order in a ‘Amazon.com’-like way? Are all products and prices up-to-date and are your contractual agreements met? Are all relevant purchasing categories present and are just the approved suppliers visible?
SAP Ariba Catalog Management
SAP Ariba Procurement Content offers a full Catalog Management Solution for these questions. All purchasing categories are covered and are made available to all users through a standardised and user-friendly process. Only the approved suppliers are visible and all contractual agreements are met.
BeNeering Catalog Cloud Services
The other catalog platform that also is supported by SAP is Catalog Cloud Services of SAP development partner BeNeering GmbH. Catalog Cloud Services (CCS) is subscription based and offers all facets of a modern catalog platform, such as OCI 5.0, supplier integration, workflows, views, e-forms, dashboards and direct integration with web shops like Amazon.com.
Employees order as they are used to in consumer web shops and this is why they adhere fully to the standardised purchasing process.
More purchasing is done on contracts which results in less maverick buying and this is why the proposed discounts on volume are met and the relationships with suppliers are improved.
Improvement of compliancy is reached by only making available the approved suppliers and to automatically follow contractual agreements.
