What is the difference between Enterprise and Standard accounts?
Suppliers using the Business Network to transact purchase orders (POs) & invoices with you may have either an Enterprise or Standard account. This depends on how you send them POs and how the supplier chooses to register their account. Below is a chart that can help you understand the different functionalities a supplier has depending on their account type:
|Enterprise account||Standard account|
|Access to 24/7 online support with SAP Ariba Customer Service|
|Access to the Help Center for FAQs, tutorials, product documentation, and over 40 Guided Assistance flows with solutions to common issues and how-to questions|
|View POs within account|
|View invoices and other created documents within account|
|Search for documents|
|Manage multiple customers under single account|
|Collaborate on advanced business processes with contract invoicing, services invoicing, and inventory forecasting|
|Integrate with EDI or cXML|
|Archive tax invoices (in select countries)|
|Free, regardless of number of documents transacted|
|Transact via email|
|Ariba Pay Enabled|
There is no functional difference between Enterprise and Standard accounts for suppliers using SAP Ariba only to participate in Sourcing events (live bids, auctions, RFPs, ect).
Suppliers may register multiple accounts and have both account types.
