The supplier network world is heating up. And one could argue that it’s growing faster than either eProcurement or e-invoicing, all of the related services and capabilities that networks can provide: software-based onboarding and enablement for running campaigns analogous to CRM and marketing automation tools on the supply side, supplier management/enrollment services desks/teams, transaction management and document routing/translation, catalog and content management, intelligent routing/workflow/exception management for invoices, supplier search, supplier portals…the list goes on. Network providers such as Ariba, Hubwoo, OB10, Basware, IBX, Perfect, and Tradeshift are increasingly fighting for a piece of a fast-growing pie.
