Xchanging and MarketMaker4: PRO-Level Analysis and MM4′s Capabilities [PRO Content]
Earlier today, Xchanging announced it was acquiring MarketMaker4 (MM4), a specialist in the e-sourcing market. In our initial coverage, we noted that MM4 brought a set of unique assets to Xchanging, including a sourcing toolset and management cockpit that stands out from competitors in several ways (but also lacking in certain areas). We’ll cover some of MM4’s capabilities in today’s piece, which should be sufficient to understand how it compares to other sourcing tools in the market. Next week, we’ll feature a more detailed customer, competitor, BPO and procurement services ecosystem analysis of the transaction.
