Ariba® Invoice and Dynamic Discounting – Pay early, save more
Suppliers typically offer clients discounts for submitting invoices electronically and for making timely payments. But some organizations fail to tap in to many of these discounts—in part because they lack the processes, the insights, and the systems to take advantage of them. SAP’s Ariba Invoice and Dynamic Discounting offers organizations a potential path to capturing more supplier discount opportunities, to make paying bills a little less painful. The result? An accounts payable department that delivers new value to the organization.
Ariba® Spend Visibility – Pinpoint where the money is going
Spending money is easy. It’s also complicated. Within organizations today, a wider variety of constituents are now enabled to make their own spending decisions, often in nontraditional ways. And the data picture gets murkier with each added layer of complexity. But new functionality delivered through the Ariba® Spend Visibility solution can help develop a “single source of truth” on spending—by using an enterprise-wide approach to gathering and analyzing data.
Ariba Sourcing – On solid ground
Managing business goals while meeting sourcing needs is often an exercise in immediate action. So when it comes to sourcing, focusing on long-term planning can sometimes be challenging. The transformative power of cloud computing offers a way for sourcing and procurement leaders to address that challenge head on. The new challenge? Determining the path forward. Offerings from Ariba, an SAP company, can help provide direction. But getting things right requires a plan.
SAP® Source-to-Pay Pre-Configured Solution: Building a foundation for holistic spend management
Is there a way to improve your bottom line without cutting staff or sacrificing customer service? Try looking at external spend, which can account for 40 percent to 70 percent of an average company’s cost structure. High quality source-to-pay capabilities can help you reduce the transactional effort of direct and indirect spend—reducing costs and freeing up time and resources for activities that are more valuable and strategic. But achieving those capabilities isn’t easy. Deloitte’s preconfigured source-to-pay solution for SAP® can help you realize the benefits sooner, providing the systems, processes, and business content you need to implement a broad, controlled, and sustainable spend management framework.
SAP®-based Source-to-Pay Preconfigured Solution: New horizons in sourcing and procurement excellence
What if your organization viewed everything through the eyes of the purchasing team? Most likely, it would be easier to cut costs and manage total cost of ownership, supply risks would be easier to keep under control, and executives would have improved visibility into spending. And that’s just the beginning. However, achieving those results is easier said than done. Deloitte’s Source-to-Pay preconfigured solution helps jump-start the process, making it easier to get advanced capabilities in place fast.
