In our previous blogs, we identified three hurdles to B2B Collaboration along with valuable solutions. Today, we'll cover Ariba Integration Connector and how it can help you integrate to all of your customers through Ariba Network.
Ariba Integration Connectors
Ready to take the plunge, but not sure where to start? Consider using an Ariba Integration Connector, powered by Dell Boomi. Bundled as part of the Enterprise and Enterprise Plus subscription packages in the Supplier Membership Program, this solution offers a simple, cost-effective way to help you integrate to all of your customers through the Ariba Network.
What is an Ariba Integration Connector, and how can it benefit me?
As a cloud-based[vi], on-demand integration service, an Ariba Integration Connector connects your back-end system to the Ariba Network without requiring you to manage software updates or maintain hardware. The solution is designed to make integration easy for sellers with no EDI or cXML technologies. Ariba does the necessary mappings on your behalf, eliminating the need to maintain multiple connections internally. As a result, you’re able to:
- Process documents faster
- Increase order and invoice accuracy
- Reduce disputes
- Eliminate manual work and duplicate data entry
- Efficiently manage business transactions
- Get paid faster
Enterprise sellers receive the basic integration option, enabling connectivity with Intuit® QuickBooks® and Sage small business accounting software products; Enterprise Plus sellers receive the extended integration option, which enables connectivity with business systems such Microsoft Dynamics® GP and Sage 100 ERP software (view the online list to see all systems currently supported). Sellers at any subscription level can gain access to the solution through an optional upgrade process[vii].
