By Business Wire News


OnProcess Technology, a global pioneer in service supply chain management and optimization, announced it has extended its global partnership with Ariba, an SAP company. As part of the enhanced alliance, OnProcess will provide implementation and consulting services for Ariba® Spend Visibility™, Ariba Sourcing™ and Ariba Contract Management ™ in North America. Leveraging its supply chain expertise, OnProcess will deliver considerable immediate savings leading to five-to-10 times ROI within six to 12 months.

OnProcess, which already provides these upstream services to Ariba customers in APAC and Europe, has been supporting the Ariba Supplier Network solution in the US since 2010.

“Like Ariba, OnProcess is dedicated to helping companies improve the efficiency and significantly reduce the cost of managing today’s complex global supply chains,” said Bhaskar Banerjee, Chief Solutions Officer,OnProcess Technology. “We’re looking forward to applying the Ariba expertise we’ve gained in international markets to North America businesses, so they can realize substantial savings right away and gain the organizational knowledge needed to build on those savings over the long term.”

“OnProcess’ deep understanding of how global supply chains work and the ways in which cloud-based applications and business networks can enhance their performance has enabled them to deliver significant value for companies across APAC and Europe,” said David Johnston, Senior Vice President, Channels and Alliances, Ariba. “We’re very pleased that they are extending this expertise to North America and delivering services that will help companies to maximize their Ariba investments and achieve new levels of productivity and performance.”

OnProcess will provide implementation, project management and training of Ariba end users as part of its service offerings. OnProcess’ team of subject matter experts will run key projects for the initial six-to-12 month engagement, generate savings and then train the client’s team to effectively run the solutions, including sourcing events, on their own.

Customers will benefit from:

  • Automating largely manual, labor-intensive processes using improved and consistent sourcing methodologies.
  • Immediately saving 8%-14%by eliminating non-competitive suppliers and requiring suppliers to bid on specific events for specific categories in an open environment, which is visible to all competitors.
  • Reducing the time to find suppliers by 30% by accessing new sources and effectively using Ariba Discovery, which lists all registered suppliers by category.
  • Reducing cycle times by more than 50% by eliminating improper suppliers, automating the right processes and requiring the appropriate internal actions.
  • Gaining sustainable organizational knowledge by templatizing sourcing events and keeping former events for later usage and learning.

OnProcess will showcase its services next month at Ariba LIVE 2015, the business commerce event of the year, which will be held at The Venetian Las Vegas April 7-9. Businesses can also learn more about OnProcess’ Ariba offerings by contacting to arrange an appointment or calling 508-623-0810.
