Process for… • Purchase Orders, Payment Proposals, Request for Quotation, and ccInvoices 3 You enable your account for quick enablement. You send a purchase order, payment proposal, CC invoice (invoices sent from the Ariba procurement solution or the ERP system), or request for quotation to suppliers with whom you do not have an existing relationship. Ariba Network creates a private account for this supplier. The supplier receives an email invitation from Ariba Network and clicks the link provided in the email to start the registration process. If the supplier is not yet registered, they can accept the invitation by completing the registration process. If the supplier is already registered, they can accept the invitation and combine their new relationship request with their existing account. Once registered, the supplier gains immediate access to the account and has an enabled relationship with that buyer. © 2014 Ariba – an SAP company. All rights reserved.
Process for… • Invoices 4 You enable your account for this enablement method and generate a unique customer code. After you generate the customer code, you can send this information to your supplier. After the supplier receives your customer code, the supplier can send you a non-PO invoice through the Ariba Network. The supplier enters this code when creating the invoice. After you receive the invoice, you can choose to accept or reject it. If you accept it, you enable the supplier to create a production account on the Ariba Network. © 2014 Ariba – an SAP company.
