SAP Ariba Spot Buy

Find and buy non-sourced goods in a way that's both simple and controlled

An innovative feature is available with SAP Ariba procurement solutions to help you whenever you need to make a spot buy, those one-off or emergency purchases that have historically been too costly and time-consuming to source. And suppliers benefit, too. It provides a vast, exciting new sales channel through which they can boost sales with both existing and new customers. We will expand geographic availability in the coming months by adding some of the largest regional network suppliers, complementing the overall sourcing strategy with market pricing and by integrating buying-process compliance.
