With great excitement, I'm pleased to welcome BravoSolution as a Lead Sponsor to Spend Matters. For those who don't know BravoSolution, the sourcing and supply management provider has quietly grown into a force to be reckoned with in Europe (in both the public and private sectors). In fact, from a revenue perspective, they're either the second or third largest global pure-play Spend Management player in the market (a strong Euro is helping this calculation, albeit). With their recent Verticalnet acquisition Bravo is now poised to make a name for itself with some of the more advanced spend analysis, sourcing and supplier performance management applications in the global market. For the longest time, I've been a strong admirer of what Atlas Commerce (and later Verticalnet) was able to do from an application standpoint in a range of areas. Now that they're part of a larger organization with strong financial backing, they've got even greater potential to reach the market. Please join me in offering a warm welcome to BravoSolution.
