The rise of managed services is expanding the pie for supplier management, enabling procurement, finance and supply chain organizations to benefit from supplier information and to drive compliance without having to think about software, supplier enablement or direct licensing agreements with individual providers themselves. Global Risk Management Solutions (GRMS) is one such provider taking a managed services approach to supplier compliance and management in a manner that can be cost neutral from the start to procurement. As our Spend Matters PRO analysis of GRMS continues (see the first installment in this series here), we offer perspective on how GRMS’ capabilities compare to and complement supplier management technology platforms and other providers, as well as general strengths, weaknesses and recommendations that potential users of this supplier risk management and compliance managed service should be aware of. We also provide perspectives on the business needs of organizations that are most likely to be a good fit for GRMS, a provider that as of January 2016, had more than 225 customers.
