Coupa vs. SAP Ariba: E-Invoicing and Supplier Network Evaluation and Head-to-Head Comparison

Coupa and SAP Ariba are among the two strongest invoice-to-pay providers in the Spend Matters Q1 2018 Invoice-to-Pay SolutionMap on a functional scoring basis. But how do they stack up against each other in a head-to-head bout, especially when considering core e-invoicing and supplier network capabilities as part of the invoice-to-pay solution area?

These recurring Head-to-Head columns share insights from each quarterly SolutionMap report for SolutionMap Insider Subscribers, providing unique comparative cuts of SolutionMap benchmark data, along with the trademark quips that have defined Spend Matters analysis since its inception.

So prepare for some real data and expect at least a modicum of salty opinion as we pit Coupa vs. SAP Ariba against each other. Not yet an Insider member? Here’s a preview: in certain invoice-to-pay categories – which include supplier network, configurability, technology (overall), general services, invoicing setup, invoicing creation/capturing/submission, services invoicing & contract invoicing, invoicing collaboration, invoice validations/approvals, invoice integrations, invoicing compliance, invoice mobility, invoicing analytics, payment/financing and overall invoice-to-pay scoring — SAP Ariba sneaks in a knock-out blow.

Overall, the results suggest that it is essential to evaluate each provider’s capability in the context of specific deployment considerations (e.g., global compliance, supplier network consideration, services invoicing, invoicing analytics).
