Reading Time: 2 minutes

CloudTrade will be flying to SAP Ariba Live in Barcelona, 4th – 6th June. Ariba Live is the largest procurement and supply chain event in the world. It will be a fantastic few days that will bring together a hugely diverse community of buyers, suppliers and partners to share discussions, ideas and best practises on all things Ariba.

My colleague, Roger Hatfield, and I attended SAP Ariba Live in Austin, Texas in April where we met many people from within our network and beyond and we were able to show CloudTrade’s technology to the enormous American market. SAP Ariba Live in Barcelona is the European leg of the Live tour and it welcomes a highly engaged, largely European crowd.

In Austin, Roger and I showcased our new buyer customisation service that will be available, via the SAP Ariba App Centre, in June 2019. Previously, SAP Ariba leveraged the CloudTrade PDF Invoice service to allow Suppliers to send application generated PDF invoices by email or via upload to the SAP Ariba network for processing. This ‘Standard Service’ is provided as part of the Supplier and Buyers SAP Ariba subscription and it included up to 120 data items required by the network. The customisations will accommodate buyers specific ERP requirements such as the removal of special characters or the inclusion of extrinsic values.

The App Centre will allow Buyer specific customisations to accommodate additional data sets and extrinsic values to ensure the extracted data is posted directly to the buyer’s Finance Application with no human intervention and with 100% data accuracy. We unveiled this solution for the first time in Austin and received plenty of positive feedback. We’ll be looking to do the same in Barcelona.

My colleague, Steve Emecz, and I are looking forward to catching up with friends and making plenty of new ones in Barcelona, building upon relationships and partnerships that we’ve gained via the SAP Ariba network. We’ll be at the event from Tuesday 4th June to Thursday 6th June 2019, proudly sporting some rather fetching CloudTrade t-shirts emblazoned with: “PDF Invoicing. Stop Me Now. Ask Me How!” So if you see us, and you want to chat, stop us and please say hello.

We’re going to be on hand throughout SAP Ariba Live to answer questions on how PDF Invoicing can benefit both buyers and suppliers, and we’ll also be supporting a selection of PDF Invoicing Breakout Sessions and Demonstrations. And, as mentioned, we’ll also be looking to introduce people to CloudTrade’s exciting move into the SAP App Centre as the CloudTrade PDF Invoice app is launched. So we look forward to seeing you all there.

Ahead of Live, if you’d like to set up a time to chat with either myself or Steve, get in touch today with our contact form.
