Revealing Your ‘Secrets’ to Procurement Technology Providers Kaitlyn McAvoy - March 17, 2015 3:39 PM | Categories: Procurement Commentary, Procurement Strategy & Planning, Technology | Tags: General News In a PRO article published earlier today, Thomas Kase, vice president of research, argued why procurement organizations should tell all technology providers they are considering investing in who their competition is. Titled appropriately, Procurement Technology Solution Selections: It’s Time to Show Your Hand to Providers, Thomas says revealing this information will actually work in your favor. A short excerpt from the article: "...by letting prospective suppliers know who their competition is, you will create greater sense of urgency, get suppliers more fired up about working with you and more effectively close the gap between your idea of scope and needs versus suppliers' actual capabilities." Today's PRO article is also part of a series on procurement technology Thomas began earlier this year.
