E-Sourcing Solution Review: MFG.com LiveSource [PRO]
[Editor’s note: An earlier version of this post was published on March 24. We have since received updated information regarding MFG.com’s new CEO, Bo Hagler, and are republishing this post as a result.] Our long awaited manufacturing e-sourcing analysis is near completion (to be shortly followed by other e-sourcing comparative reviews and rankings). As part of this effort, we will be featuring detailed vendor write-ups in the coming weeks. The first provider weâ€™re tackling is MFG.com LiveSource. We recently spoke with the new majority investors, Fulcrum Equity Partners, who have assured us that they are â€ślooking to grow and invest in LiveSource.” We take this as good news, as the solution has much potential in the market. A few members of the MFG.com team have left in recent months, and as of this writing, the company has just recruited a new CEO: Bo Hagler. Mr. Hagler was most recently VP of R&D at QAD, Inc (NASDAQ: QADA and QADB) where he was responsible for supply chain solutions as well as new product introduction â€“ and even if Spend Matters hasnâ€™t had the pleasure of interviewing Mr Hagler yet, his background looks like a good fit for MFG.
