Consumer-like shopping experience for businesses

by CXOtoday News Desk    Jun 04, 2013


Online shopping isn’t just for consumers anymore. With increasing frequency, businesses are demanding the same experience. But creating and managing accurate, user friendly catalogs that are compliant with corporate purchasing policies can be a challenge – particularly when attempting to do it within an ERP system. To address these challenges, Atos has integrated Ariba’s cloud-based procurement applications with its SAP system, thereby creating a consumer-like shopping site through which goods and services can be quickly and easily requisitioned from preferred vendors – all within its existing procurement infrastructure and in accordance with corporate purchasing policies. This move will enable businesses to move away from hosting Excel-based catalogs and create a system through which employees can access supplier-maintained catalogs or punch out directly to vendors.
