Statess, a supplier management technology solution developed and owned by State of Flux, a consultancy, competes in a sector that is confusing for providers, let alone procurement organizations. The fragmentation of the supplier management technology market can make it difficult for procurement organizations to create the right provider shortlist and select the optimal technology to meet their needs. Statess is an upstart competitor in this highly complicated sector, although one not as well known as perhaps it should be, owning to the limited sales and marketing investment of its parent company relative to peers.
This final installment of our multipart Spend Matters PRO Vendor Snapshot series covering Statess offers a competitive analysis and comparison with other supplier management providers. 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 State of Flux and the Statess product line.
