How smart provisioning can benefit your company

Provisioning is becoming a key element in making basic business decisions, especially in the finance department and in the supply chain manufacturing department. Why? Because, at present, promoting a customer-centred digital supply chain is one of the main strategic priorities.

Thanks to our partnerships with growing companies, we have found that the quickest route to smart provisioning is to expand SAP S/4HANA, the smart ERP cloud software, with SAP Ariba and Ariba Network solutions, the world's largest business network.

Smart provisioning for your company

Competitive companies assess the situation as a whole, from demand planning to procurement, data provisioning, and management—areas included within SAP Ariba and SAP S/4HANA solutions. These solutions make it much easier to securely and reliably expand supply processes while bringing them to the cloud and beyond the company's four walls. In the cloud, companies and suppliers can exchange information, improve visibility and collaborate more efficiently.

They also offer the possibility of automating the business process and forging new relationships with suppliers through Ariba Network, a digital and dynamic market where millions of buyers and suppliers process $3 billion in business every year. When the Ariba Network solution is connected to SAP S/4HANA, where sales, plans and production inventory are managed, data planning can bolster supply so that you always have what you need at the right time and place.

Develop a digital supply chain and boost productivity

The automation capacity delivered by SAP S/4HANA and SAP Ariba solutions drives your company's productivity. For example, the guided purchases feature offers buyers within the corresponding business lines a simple interface where they can quickly and simply purchase goods and services from your preferred suppliers, and all with minimal support from the supply team.

Given the business impact of smart provisioning driven by SAP S/4HANA and SAP Ariba solutions, it might be easy to think that this solution is beyond the budget of most medium-sized companies. However, SAP customers have demonstrated that the savings generated by SAP Ariba and Ariba Network solutions can be used to finance digital transformation projects, such as the implementation of SAP S/4HANA.

Once implemented, the SAP S/4HANA solution offers an investment return that fosters financial and planning transformations, which are not only strategic and fundamental for the company's long-term health, but also offer significant savings thanks to a reduction in full-time employee labour costs through faster financial closures, faster customer billing and data-driven information.

Make real-time decisions based on the platforms that best complement each other: SAP S/4HANA and SAP Ariba. Data flows perfectly between these two solutions, offering full visibility of demand, supply and costs. In short, SAP S/4HANA and SAP Ariba solutions offer intelligent technologies that provide the right data to improve overall operational performance.

Efficiency in decision-making

If we analyse the reality of companies, we see that one of the essential tasks is decision-making. It is difficult to imagine a company where there is no manual process of approval for the decisions to be taken.
