Currently Being Moderated

On October 22, Ariba Discovery introduced a series of new features that improve the site experience for buyers and sellers. Let me give you an overview of what's new on the site and how to take advantage of the added functionalities. This post deals with the new single sign-on functionality. In separate posts, I will look at the enhanced location selection, posting progress enhancements, improvements to the matching engine and business opportunity emails, and event monitoring interface enhancements in Ariba Sourcing.

 

Ariba Discovery Single Sign-on

Ariba Discovery accounts now include access to both buyer and seller functionality. Sellers can use their existing username and password to create postings, review proposals, and build real business relationships with buyers. Buyers can use their existing username and password to receive leads, respond to postings, and discover new business relationships with sellers.

 

New buyers and sellers can activate the buying functionality during their initial registration on Ariba Discovery. Existing buyers and sellers can begin creating or responding to postings in minutes - here's how:
