OpusCapita: What Makes it Great (E-Procurement SolutionMap Analysis) [SolutionMap E-Procurement]

OpusCapita is somewhat of a novelty in North America — and is only selectively known at the level of SAP Ariba, Coupa or Basware in parts of Europe. That’s a shame, as OpusCapita could very well be the perfect technology fit for many procurement and finance organizations that do not even know about it. Spend Matters comparatively tore into OpusCapita’s e-procurement and procure-to-pay capability as part of our Q2 2018 SolutionMap benchmark and discovered what makes the provider great.

Nearly all technology providers participating in SolutionMap aren’t perfect (i.e., in analyst speak, “up and to the right”) for every business scenario. Even if a vendor has outstanding capability in certain areas — functionality, services or something else that helps it win business — to perform consistently above the functional and customer benchmark is a rarity. But there are reasons that specialist providers in different markets beat the big names in how they support specific organizational needs. 

“What Makes it Great” is a recurring column that shares insights from each quarterly SolutionMap report for SolutionMap Insider Subscribers, exploring what makes these specialized (and in certain cases not-so-specialized) technology providers great for reasons that a simple graphic would fail to capture. Based on the rigorous SolutionMap evaluation process, customer reference reviews and expert eye from looking at products comparatively during demonstrations, the “What Makes it Great” series takes a fact-based approach to surfacing what makes individual vendors great.

In each research brief we translate each provider’s geek-level secret sauce into plain English and show precisely where the provider excels and where it convincingly “beats the benchmark” in SolutionMap. And we offer up a checklist for ideal customer scenarios in which procurement, finance and supply chain organizations should consider the vendor, along with basic facts to size ‘em up quickly.
