ARIBA Supplier Information and Support

Welcome to the SAP Supplier Information Portal. This portal provides information for all suppliers that are conducting business with SAP via the Ariba Network. The Ariba® Network is a secure, global platform for exchanging business transactions such as purchase orders, invoices, catalogs and payments.

SAP has recently migrated to the Ariba® Network platform for electronic transaction processing. As part of the migration, SAP sends Purchase Orders to all suppliers exclusively via the Ariba® Network and requests from the vendors to submit their Invoices back to SAP via the Network as well. Currently SAP is using the Ariba Network in 23 countries.

Moving from paper-based Purchase Order and Invoice flows to electronic channels is an efficient way to cut costs and enhance supply chain integration. This Solution benefits vendors by providing real-time Purchase Order and Invoice delivery; a reduction in administrative business expenses and exposure to new business opportunities.

With no hardware or software to install subscribing to the network is simple. As an entry level you can even transact on the Ariba Network without any registration – via interactive email PO. All instructions regarding registration or invoicing without registration is included in the PO that you are receiving from SAP via the Ariba Network.

Beside the Ariba Purchase Orders and Ariba Invoicing the supplier has an option to upload a catalog file on the Ariba network. Such catalog file includes information about the provided items including images, detailed description, delivery time, pricing, etc. Once a supplier uploads this catalog file to Ariba network it is reviewed and activated. In case of any changes (e.g. price or availability) the supplier has to upload a changed catalog file.

Ariba Network supports the following catalog type: Catalog Interchange Format (CIF)

CIF file can be created with any word processor, text editor, or spreadsheet application. Click on the link within the CIF file to see guidance for “How to create a catalog CIF file”.
