Fueled by liquidity from Parthenon Capital Partners, Periscope Holdings recently announced it acquired BidSync. Both companies have a core focus on procurement in the public sector (state and local government – not federal), as well as in higher education. BidSync is headquartered in Utah with more than 1,000 e-procurement customers (presumably derived from umbrella deals with groups bringing multiple parties to the table). This Spend Matters PRO analysis, authored by Thomas Kase, vice president of research, provides initial background and analysis on the 2 providers and the acquisition, with a focus on the acquiring company and its strategy.
