SAP Ariba Procurement Operations Desk Implementation Centralize procurement administration

What is the SAP Ariba Procurement Operations Desk Implementation?

Procurement Operations Desk is an SAP Ariba feature that streamlines the procurement team productivity, scalability, and performance by automating and standardizing procurement operational activities or source-to-settle requests.

After the implementation your procurement organization will be better equiped for proactive assignment of intercepted requests to the right resources, efficient collaboration, manage deadlines using configurable SLA’s, process transparency, and have an end-to-end integration with Ariba solution with roles-based workflows.

How does the SAP Ariba Procurement Operations Desk Implementation work?

Brainbox consultants come in to analyze the business process surrounding approvable documents such as invoices, purchase requisitions, and other approval procedures. Subsequently, the scope of the implementation project is defined based on a future state definition. A fit-gap analysis between the current and future state will expose the relevant processes that will become part of the implementation of Procurement Operations Desk. If required, an SLA can provide support after the go-live and hypercare.


Large organizations process a lot of approvable documents on a daily basis. A popular strategy to efficiently manage these approvables is to establish a shared service center. These shared service centers act as gate keepers and guard company compliance throughout the organization. While shared service centers are perfect to reduce the workload in key departments, it is often overlooked to properly integrate them into business processes. Procurement Operations Desk helps organizations overcome this gap and provides the platform to efficiently manage approvable documents and tasks.
