INDIANAPOLIS (PRWEB) March 31, 2019
Premikati, Inc. will once again sponsor SAP Ariba Live in Austin this year - showcasing its Premikati Marketplace for small and mid-size companies (SMB) and the Premikati SAP Ariba Center of Excellence for large enterprise (LE) customers.
Earlier this year, Premikati, a partner in the SAP Ariba ecosystem, unveiled its Premikati Marketplace, which leverages technology from SAP Ariba to provide SMBs access to enterprise-class procurement as a service.
The Marketplace offers SMBs access to LE pricing for millions of items from hundreds of vetted and sustainable suppliers while providing an advance procurement interface for visibility and spend controls.
“Over the last five years of attending many minority and diversity conferences, I recognized the gap for an affordable and manageable procurement solution for companies that support the global Fortune companies,” said Marisol Buczynski Buchanan, CEO of Premikati. “I knew that this was an issue that could be addressed through the skills and talent of the Premikati team and the trusted procurement solutions offered by SAP Ariba.”
Premikati Marketplace is a low-cost, low-risk solution that does not need a company’s IT department to be involved for implementation. In fact, a company can begin transacting within 24 hours of providing basic user information for setup. Two of its customers will be sharing their experiences at SAP Ariba Live during the Premikati Marketplace breakout session found under the Small and Mid-size breakout track.
For mid-size organizations where SAP Ariba Snap is the best choice for procurement software, Premikati CEO, Marisol Buczynski-Buchanan will be participating in a breakout session sharing the key best practices for an efficient and successful implementation of SAP Ariba Snap, how to quickly get time-to-value, and key differentiators in its implementation processes that help move organizations from where they are to best in class.
On the other end of the spectrum, Premikati has also created a solution for common LE support issues and has created a world-class SAP Ariba Center of Excellence (COE). All of Premikati’s staff are not only SAP Ariba experts, but have also been procurement professionals for large enterprises. One of the top requests for Premikati’s SAP Ariba COE is to perform an “as-is” assessment of the configuration and usage of a Customer’s current SAP Ariba setup, recommend changes, assist in implementation of any changes, and assist in determining if the realization of the SAP Ariba value is being achieved. Additionally, the Premikati COE offers services covering: setup and configuration of Guided Buying (retro-fit); set-up and integrate Amazon for Business into Guided Buying; provide Supplier Enablement services to add and enable new or additional suppliers for usage through Ariba Network, including catalog development; provide Procurement Operational assessments specific to Sourcing, Contract Management, Contract Administration, Purchasing Operations, Software Asset Management, and Analytics and KPI Metric management.
The experts at Premikati will be available at booth S4 to answer any questions you may have regarding any of their services and offerings.
