  • Strategic Procurement Technologies, which maps sourcing (e-sourcing), spend analysis, supplier management and contract lifecycle management (CLM) solutions.
  • Source-to-Pay (S2P), which maps end-to-end suite solutions that offer P2P and SPT capabilities.

Want to Get the Most Mileage Out of SolutionMap?

We’re no strangers to automotive metaphors here — indeed, the founder of Spend Matters has a penchant for cars, and we’ve found that nearly all things in the procurement software market can be expertly painted with the brushstroke of a car metaphor.

You chuckle, but boy are they applicable.

As our colleague Sam Rea has noted, “For practitioners making a tech selection, or those simply looking to understand the market, the long list of providers can seem daunting and complex.

“SolutionMap strives to help procurement keep with the pace of the industry, as well as evaluate the latest and greatest technologies and services,” he continued. “With the continued influx of data, we believe our understanding of the space will only deepen — and so shall yours.”

For both sides to achieve the deepest understanding of these technology markets, we have to get under the hood (see?) with SolutionMap Insider.
