The market for event management software is saturated — especially in the areas of planning and marketing. From targeting potential delegates to making attendee registration as simple as possible and coordinating disparate activities, traditional event management software can enable the basics operationally. And there is a broad range of providers to choose from. Yet the market for event management technology centered on procurement is nascent. Because of this, procurement has had only a limited ability to influence and manage spend effectively — and close the loop on supplier performance and payment — in targeting a spend category that only grows larger by the year (at least until the next global recession). Eved is hoping to change this, as well as drive seven- or even eight-figure annual savings for individual Global 2000 customers in the process.
This final installment of our multipart Spend Matters PRO Vendor Snapshot series covering Eved offers a competitive analysis and comparison with other similar or related vendors that companies may wish to shortlist. It also includes a user selection guide, user interface and user experience (UI/UX) analysis and summary evaluation and selection considerations. Part 1 and Part 2 of this PRO research series provide a company and deep dive solution overview, a SWOT analysis, product strengths and weaknesses and a recommended fit analysis for what types of organizations should consider Eved.
