    Anybody working with Ariba? How does it work and do you have any good or bad experiences?

    Just like every other one. I think they do reverse bidding though.So you better be good at the limbo!

    Ok, I didn't realize they worked like that. I have done very little research on them. I intend to do more digging Monday when I get back to the office. However, I was under the impression they"pre approved" vendors/service providers for their clients. Grandview as always I do appreciate your input!

    They are simply a procurement/work order management system. They (your) potential customer has to choose to use them as such a tool. There are multiple ways they run pricing and procurement exercises and reverse auctions are one of them. Good luck!
