As a supplier transacting on Ariba Network, integrating with your customers can bring tremendous benefits in improving operational efficiencies, reducing errors and accelerating payments.

Below are some examples of integrated processes:

  • Purchase orders automatically routed to your order processing system

  • Shipping notices automatically sent to customers when you send orders

  • Invoices automatically sent by your accounts receivable system to your customers’ accounts payable teams

The greater your transaction volume on Ariba Network, the greater the benefits you’ll be able to realize from automation.

If you're new to integration, the preferred method is SAP Ariba Cloud Integration Gateway (CIG). However, if you have existing integrations on Ariba Network via the Legacy EDI translator, they will continue to be supported.

The Ariba Network team is working on parity between the Legacy EDI translator and CIG document types like EDIFACT D96A and ASCx12 v4010. Keep an eye out for future announcements in this area.
