Seems like it’s hard to go anywhere today without seeing people gazing intently into their phones and tablets.  While that behavior may strike some as anti-social, downloading the Ariba LIVE mobile app can actually help attendees be quite social! 

For those who like to be on top of everything that’s going on around them at a conference, the app is a great tool to find and network with people, share your opinions and see what others are saying on social media. It also helps you build your schedule, based on industry, solution, or track, to make sure you’re right where you want to be.  With the attendee directory, you can search by attendee name or company name to locate people you’d like to speak to during the event.  You can use the app to send messages or invite people to meet, with the ability to add the meetings directly to your calendar. 


With the social media tab, you can easily connect to the Ariba Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn feeds to see what people are saying and share your thoughts using the hashtag - #AribaLIVE.  It also connects you to our user communities, Ariba Exchange and the SAP Community Network. You can even upload pictures you take to share with others and there will be plenty of beautiful backdrops at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.  You’ll also have access to information at your fingertips, including breakout presentations you can review prior to arriving, to see what sessions are most interesting, and documentation from Commerce Pavilion kiosks so you don’t need to carry a lot of paper around. 

You can access the full schedule of events along with speaker bios.  You can also use the app to capture notes, if you hear something important during a presentation or while you’re connecting with someone new.  Just capture it in the app and you can even email it to yourself, so it’s filed away where you can easily find it.  By using the survey functionality, you can let us know what’s working well and what isn’t, so we can make next year even better.  

The app is available at our mobile app tab on Get the user guide and watch the tutorial video.  Please note that you must register for Ariba LIVE to get your username and password to use the app.
