Welcome to the fifth edition of Spend Matters’ monthly feature, “The Contingent Workforce and Services Insider’s Hot List,” available to PLUS and PRO subscribers.

In the CW/S space, new developments are observable every month. These can include:

  1. New innovative, technology solutions (sometimes hybrid technology and services)
  2. New entrants (some self-styled as disruptive) that have typically been the originators of No. 1
  3. Established supply chain players responding to Nos. 1 and 2, some more effectively than others

On a month-to-month basis, these kinds of developments ebb and flow, but there are always at least a few interesting developments (e.g., a new technology solution provider; a supply chain player or an enterprise trying something new; an alliance with, investment in or acquisition of a still young and innovative provider). If we were to go back 10 years, we would find an entirely different world where truly innovative, technology-driven developments were rare. But today the CW/S space is continuously percolating with new concepts, applications of technology, supply chain participants responses and other developments that go largely unnoticed.

Let’s have a closer look at some of what we picked up on our radar this past month.
