Easily add sourcing optimization and automation to key spends.
As an SAP Application Extension Partner, Keelvar’s sourcing optimization platform directly integrates with SAP Ariba. This integration meets the needs of more complex spends where price and non-price bid elements factor into a higher-quality award decision.
Keelvar’s Sourcing Optimizer integrates directly via SAP Ariba's API.
Buyers trigger the desired sourcing event in SAP Ariba and then send it to Keelvar for event creation, bid collection, bid optimization, and award scenario analysis.
Award decision and data is sent to SAP Ariba Contracting for downstream processing.
AN IDEAL COMPLEMENT
Customers use Keelvar alongside SAP Ariba Sourcing to handle specific complex spend categories or sourcing events where optimization and automation can deliver higher ROI and quality.
ON-RAMP TO AUTOMATION
In our Sourcing Optimizer core platform, and with the addition of our Intelligent Sourcing Automation, SAP Ariba customers gain smart features that enhance e-sourcing workflow and efficiency.
EASE OF USE MEETS QUALITY
A user-friendly interface makes it easy to create and manage Keelvar-hosted sourcing events triggered in SAP Ariba, while bid data validation and supplier bidding flexibility improve the quality of sourcing award options.
