Zip Intake-to-Procure Available on SAP Store

Zip announced its Intake-to-Procure platform is available on SAP Store, the online marketplace for SAP and partner offerings. Zip integrates with SAP Ariba, SAP’s spend management software solution that is purpose-built to streamline payment workflows.

Zip Intake-to-Procure combined with the SAP Ariba procure-to-pay solution gives customers a best-in-class, end-to-end purchasing workflow with a consumer-style user experience. This allows businesses to increase compliance with procurement policies, drive more spend requests through Ariba and realize greater spend control.

“By integrating Zip with SAP Ariba, businesses can achieve an end-to-end procurement process that is both scalable and easy to use,” said Zip co-founder and CEO Rujul Zaparde. “Zip provides a consumer-style, front-end experience for purchase request intake to drive employee adoption and compliance with procurement policies. The new integration adds a powerful layer of innovation to SAP Ariba’s well-established P2P capabilities, enabling our joint customers to bring more spend under management and drive greater visibility and control.”

During the software purchasing process, organizations can experience a disconnect between their intake-to-procure (I2P) and procure-to-pay (P2P) processes, which can lead to confusion among employees and introduce inaccuracies between key systems of record.

The Zip-Ariba integration unifies the previously disjointed I2P and P2P processes. By offering an option for companies looking to address cross-functional intake and approvals, Zip complements and augments the established Ariba P2P processes that companies have in place.

Ariba customers can begin the intake process with Zip – automatically gathering the appropriate approvals they need from stakeholders – before being directed back to SAP Ariba to complete the P2P process.
