This is the second post in a series on new features introduced to Ariba Discovery on October 22. The changes improve the site experience for both buyers and sellers, and I would like to provide you with an overview of what's new and how to take advantage of the added functionalities. The first article covered the new single sign-on functionality, and this article deals with the enhanced location selection. In future posts, you will learn more about posting progress enhancements, improvements to the matching engine and business opportunity emails, and event monitoring interface enhancements in Ariba Sourcing.

 

Enhanced Location Selection

With release 8, this feature is now available for both buyers and sellers on Ariba Discovery. It facilitates the creation of profiles by allowing sellers to include the regions they serve in their profile. Previously, sellers that serve let's say the whole European continent had to select nearly 50 countries. Now, Ariba Discovery displays a list of regions that are typically grouped together for geographic reasons, allowing sellers to quickly indicate the locations they serve.

 

Similarly, in their postings, buyers can now specify the regions they want their goods or services delivered to. Previously, buyers that wanted goods or services delivered in Europe had to select nearly 50 countries. Now, Ariba Discovery displays a list of regions that are typically grouped together for geographic reasons, allowing buyers to quickly indicate the locations they want their goods or services delivered to.
