Ariba Launches Cloud Platform for Collaborative Business Commerce

Ariba, a leading provider of collaborative business commerce solutions, announced the launch of the Ariba Commerce Cloud, a unique web-based platform that enables companies to buy, sell and manage cash more efficiently and effectively than ever before. Delivered as an integrated and flexible service, the Ariba Commerce Cloud provides companies with everything needed to manage collaborative inter-enterprise commerce, including market-leading technology, expert skills and capabilities and the world's largest global trading community.

"The first wave of enterprise efficiency focused on automating and streamlining internal operations," says Bob Calderoni, chairman and CEO, Ariba. "Yet, companies still rely on costly, manual, and inefficient processes for managing external commercial relationships. The next wave of productivity will come from more efficient and effective collaboration between companies. The Ariba Commerce Cloud provides the technology, community, and capabilities required for better collaborative buying, selling, and financial management."

There is something for everyone with Ariba Commerce Cloud, he says. Procurement gains control of total spend and gets a handle on risks through more collaborative relationships with suppliers.  Finance improves cash flow and increases productivity through collaborative invoicing, payment, and working capital management. Sales and Marketing accesses the largest buying community for greater sales, faster payment and lower costs. And IT can say goodbye to the high costs and burdens of traditional business application and integration management thanks to cloud-based applications and pre-built integrations to trading partners.
