I'm very excited to announce that Procuri has joined Spend Matters as a lead sponsor. Procuri positions itself as leading "the OnDemand Supply Management industry with a nearly perfect record of customer retention of more than 300 customers of all sizes, industries, geographies and spend categories. Customers include Eastman Kodak, ITT Industries, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, The McGraw-Hill Companies, Newell Rubbermaid, Sun Microsystems and Toyota Motor Sales. Procuri's OnDemand solutions for spend analysis, supplier management, strategic sourcing, contract management and compliance are comprehensive, cost effective and instantly available."
I've recently argued that Procuri's largest opportunity is to become the Salesforce.com of the sourcing and procurement world. To this end, I'm looking forward to hearing what Tim Minahan and others have to say in Procuri's upcoming Supply Management 2.0 forum. I'll also be speaking at the Chicago event which is taking place in May, so drop by if you're in the area. In the meantime, please join me in welcoming Procuri to Spend Matters! Regardless of whether you call it "Spend Management" or "Supply Management", we can all agree that spend matters!
