Product Sourcing

Product Sourcing brings bill of material (BOM) and direct material management into the SAP® Ariba® sourcing suite. BOMs can be directly uploaded, sourced, and quoted from the SAP Ariba Network with other suppliers.

Blue Prism RPA

With Robotic Process Automation, bots can review procurement processes with pre-negotiated items and terms—to help eliminate highly manual and repetitive efforts for the purchasing team. The bots can be designed to imitate any repeatable process with scalable demand—to free up resources for higher value work, eliminate time-consuming reviews, and reduce turnaround time for documents.


Integrated Business Planning includes four key capabilities: forecast collaboration, response management, control tower, and scenario planning. Each of these levers enhances visibility and can increase the organization’s ability to plan for any disruptions in the supply chain, while providing actionable alerts and analytics.


Our integrated solution is centered around integrating DesignSource and SAP S/4HANA® and SAP® Ariba® technology capabilities to maximize business benefits and execute efficient and effective technology transformation. DesignSource transforms product and supply chain data to identify complexity and cost reduction opportunities through data enrichment, classification and rationalization across product portfolios. The synergy between DesignSource and SAP S/4HANA allows seamless migration of enriched part data for effective negotiation/sourcing strategies and production part procurement driving reuse in Direct Material industries.
