Over the course of this Fall, I'll be talking to a number of innovative Spend Management providers and will be posting my findings from these discussions here at Spend Matters. What areas do I find most interesting these days? Services Spend Management is certainly one. And one of the most curious players in this space is Rearden Commerce, which is taking a new approach to providing a platform that enables organizations to manage services spend such as travel and shipping at the frontlines of the organization. I'll be talking to Jeff Pulver of Rearden Commerce later this week, and I'm looking forward to hearing what he has to say. At this stage of the market, Reardon appears to be the one to the boutique provider to beat, but other upstarts such as Fieldglass and IQNavigator also provide specialized solutions.
