Spend Matters 50/50: Scanmarket – A Provider To Know in 2015

100 companies - 100 days

We announced here and here our two (not ranked) lists: Spend Matters 50 To Know and 50 To Watch firms for 2015/2016. In the first case, this is our view of the 50 solution provider type organisations in the procurement industry that every senior procurement leader should be aware of and understand. The 50 To Watch are the up-and-coming firms  - those with interesting and relatively new solutions for our market. The 50 To Know are the key organisations in our industry that procurement executives need to have on their radar.

Having announced the lists, our US colleagues are now featuring each of the 100 firms in turn with an article giving an overview of each, with some headline Spend Matters thoughts on them. So on this site we will be giving you a brief extract of the US article, plus adding our own comments where we have anything useful to add from a European perspective. Sometimes we do, sometimes we don’t!

Here is what our US colleagues had to say about Scanmarket.

"Scanmarket is a 15-year veteran as an e-sourcing solution and strategic sourcing and auction services provider. With European roots, and one executive on either side of the Atlantic, the company knows how to handle global strategic sourcing issues. The company has also built out a knowledge module called eLearning with videos and documents that help clients understand how to drive adoption and effectively train users. The company's long experience in delivering professional services and in-house customer support has helped it build these insights."

And what about our view from this side of the Atlantic? Well, while the firm was founded in Denmark, and has offices in that country, Germany and the UK, and good business across Europe, I must confess that personally I've had little contact with them. I say "hi" at eWorld, but we haven't made it through to serious discussions or demos.  Let's see if I can get closer to the firm by next year's round-up.
