Ariba Tops List Of Supply Chain Finance Providers

For the eighth straight year, Ariba, an SAP Company, has been ranked among the World’s Best Supply Chain Finance Providers. The company today announced that it has been named Best E-Procurement Solution by Global Finance Magazine as part of an annual survey published in the July/August issue.

“There’s no shortage of banks willing to extend financing to strategic suppliers, based on the creditworthiness of their large buyers,” said Joseph Giarraputo, publisher of Global Finance. “But the real need for financing is in emerging and frontier markets, where small and medium-size enterprises and distributors still have problems gaining access to working capital at affordable rates. The 2014 Best Supply Chain Finance Awards recognize those providers that are delivering solutions that fill this gap.”

Ariba was selected as Best eProcurement Solution by a group of industry analysts, corporate executives and technology experts on the basis of its market share and global coverage, product innovation, customer service, technology, execution skills and client-specific implementations.

“Innovation and business growth are driven by the free flow of cash. But within many companies, cash is tied up in receivables and payables and essentially stuck,” said Ariba Manage Cash Solution Marketing Director Drew Hofler. “Ariba’s solutions are designed to help companies get their cash moving and working to their advantage and we are pleased to again be recognized by Global Finance for the strength of our solutions and the value they deliver.”

Ariba offers a comprehensive range of cloud-based solutions that enable companies to optimize their working capital management and strengthen their financial supply chain. Delivered via the Ariba® Network, the solutions leverage the intelligence and connectivity of the Ariba Network to fuel a more collaborative procure-to-pay process that delivers unprecedented business outcomes.

Better Cash Management

Take Ariba Discount Professional . In the face of renewed market volatility and economic uncertainty, companies are tightening their grip on cash to hedge against financial risk. But with little prospect of earning a return on parked capital, many buyer organizations are increasingly seeing their supply chains as a more viable opportunity for investment. And suppliers are seeing large, cash-rich customers as a better source of faster cash for their receivables.

With Ariba Discount Professional, buyers can accelerate payments for approved invoices to key suppliers in return for discounts, earning an immediate return on their cash. And sellers can gain increased visibility into future cash flows, certainty in payment timing and the ability to use cash sooner to fund daily business needs.
