SAP Ariba users’ reviews are in the new SolutionMap Customer Insights report

Q1 2019 Spend Matters SolutionMap procurement software company rankings

Today, the inaugural Spend Matters SolutionMap Customer Insights report features reviews from SAP Ariba’s customers. We are taking a deeper look into our SolutionMap database, which ranks providers in the marketplace according to their capabilities and their customers’ reviews of the companies.
