Oracle Business Network Supplier Enablements (Per Enablement)


Statement of Work (SOW) Terms


Welcome to the Oracle Business Network Supplier Enablements (Per Enablement) pre-built solution.

This pre-built solution provides Oracle application licensees with all-inclusive method of enabling OBN connects “per supplier”.  It doesn’t matter if you have 1 or 100 suppliers who fit the criteria (see below), we will connect each one for the price listed in the upper-right.

Oracle Business Network or OBN is a free, cloud-based application provided by Oracle for the licensees of its ERP applications.  Licensees can use OBN to electronically transmit purchase orders to their suppliers and receive invoices from their suppliers under certain conditions.  No solutions automates all invoices, but OBN works very well for high volume PO-related invoices and is most often associated with transactions related to punch-out orders (for both draft carts and shopping carts).

The purchase of this micro-service connects 1 supplier to the Service Buyer’s Oracle Cloud instance via the Oracle Business Network.  That connection allows the Service Buyer organization to send purchase orders to the supplier and receive invoices back from that same supplier.  The completion of this service allows the Service Buyers to go “round-trip” (automate the procurement and settlement processes) with that one supplier.  It also allows the Service Buyer to connect to the supplier’s commerce site (aka punchout) as part of this enablement process (see below for the steps).



The PURPOSE of this pre-built solution is as follows:

  • To provide an all-inclusive price for connecting a supplier, via the Oracle Business Network, to their customer’s Oracle Cloud instance.
  • To allow procurement organizations to dramatically decrease procurement’s cost per transaction.
