Keelvar Systems Limited has announced a series of enhancements to its Keelvar Sourcing Optimizer Connector, which is now available on SAP Store, the online marketplace for SAP and partner offerings. Keelvar’s Sourcing Optimizer Connector integrates with SAP Ariba solutions to provide customers with improved savings and speed in large and complex sourcing projects.
“As a specialist sourcing software provider, Keelvar provides great depth of sourcing technology, while SAP Ariba solutions provide unrivaled breadth in its digitalized procurement capabilities,” said Keelvar CEO Alan Holland. “These enhancements have made it a very powerful partnership that is of great benefit to customers.”
Using Keelvar Sourcing Optimizer Connector, customers can send sourcing event data (suppliers and line-item data) from SAP Ariba solutions to Keelvar Sourcing Optimizer to conduct event creation, bid collection, bid optimization, and award scenario analysis.
Thanks to Keelvar’s latest enhancements, customers can take additional information from the event in the SAP Ariba Sourcing solution through the event in Keelvar and push the data back to the SAP Ariba Sourcing solution instead of SAP Ariba Contracts for downstream processing.
Additionally, customers can benefit from newly enhanced features of Keelvar Sourcing Optimizer Connector, including the ability to perform key actions in SAP Ariba Sourcing:
- Create line-items on event close in Keelvar
- Populate bid data on event close in Keelvar
- Award event based on allocations in Keelvar on event close
- Synchronize updated suppliers and line-items from SAP Ariba Sourcing to Keelvar
Customers can use Keelvar alongside SAP Ariba Sourcing to handle sourcing events where optimization can deliver a higher ROI and find new opportunities for savings and risk reduction through more competitive bidding and awarding.
