The report also recognises the role specialist technology providers in sourcing, spend/supply analytics, supplier and contract management can provide in enhancing ‘suite’ solutions: “it is important to realize the additional value that can come from complementing suite-based capabilities in these areas with specialized solutions if required. This is especially true for organizations that want to link e-procurement, invoice-to-pay or collective procure-to-pay capabilities with these strategic procurement technology areas and move beyond basic integrated procurement use cases.”
Trade Extensions, CEO, Garry Mansell said, “Sourcing optimization has been described as ‘guaranteed ROI’, and when we launch TESS 6.0 in April, the power of the platform will become even more accessible to users whether they are running complex sourcing events or simpler projects involving routine bid collection or even auctions.”
