IQNavigator: From Strength to Strength – 2015 Company and Solution Outlook [PRO]

PHE63L27S6 IQNavigator is a vendor management system (VMS) provider in the midst of an important transition, which includes “doubling down” on a focus on technology R&D in part by continuing to add R&D resources following the sale of its MSP arm, more aggressively embracing partnership with the MSP ecosystem than in the past and starting the implementation of a strategy to “roll up” smaller VMS providers in the sector through acquisition. In December, Spend Matters Founder and Managing Director Jason Busch spent the day with the IQNavigator team in Denver to drill down on company strategy and product direction and met with the European team in the UK in early February to get an update on activity from the other side of the Atlantic. This multi-part Spend Matters PRO analysis covers his findings and analysis, beginning with a 2015 IQNavigator company update and European market adoption trends.
