There is a lot of competition in the e-sourcing and strategic sourcing suite marketplace today. Granted, while new market entrants have largely if not entirely replaced some of the legacy providers from a decade or more ago, the amount of choice procurement organizations have in selecting a provider has never been greater. EC Sourcing is one such provider that companies — especially those in the middle market — may wish to add to their shortlists not just for core sourcing and negotiation but to enable basic category management support and upstream (non-transactional) suite capability. This final installment of our multipart Spend Matters PRO Vendor Snapshot series covering EC Sourcing provides a competitive analysis and comparison with other vendors that companies may wish to shortlist that compete in the same markets. 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 analysis provide a company and detailed solution overview, a SWOT analysis, product strengths and weaknesses and a recommended fit analysis for what types of organizations should consider EC Sourcing.
