Supplier Management Forecast: 2014 Customer Recommendations and Vendor Shortlists [PRO]
There is not a single “supplier management” market. Nor is there simple supplier/vendor landscape segmentation. As we pointed out last Friday, this can make it challenging to develop the right set of shortlists. Read on for a list of variables related to supplier management selection that were factored into the shortlists, as well as the shortlists themselves as pertaining to what your organization needs. We have attempted to define supplier shortlists based on the most common use cases and requirements we see in the market today. This is the fourth in a series of 2014 market outlooks published to Spend Matters PRO subscribers. We’ll also cover the strategic sourcing, spend analytics, and trade financing markets in the coming weeks.
