Procurement services study series (Part 4) — Regional consultancies market detail and 6 provider profiles
This installment of the Spend Matters PRO research series “Procurement Services Market Landscape Report and Directory” focuses on regional consulting firms as we continue our analysis of six procurement services market segments that we’ve outlined:
- Source-to-Pay Implementation (consulting, systems integration, optimization)
- Regional Consultancies
- Managed Service Providers (MSPs)
- Strategy Consultancies
- Global Consultancies (including the “Big 5”)
- BPO Providers
Part 1 of the series gave an overview of the survey findings and lists the 34 providers that we’re initially profiling. See our services provider directory to learn more about the providers and what specifically they offer. Part 2 details how procurement professionals can use this information, and it gives more information on the six market segments and providers in those groups. Part 3 detailed the seven S2P implementation providers in the first post on the individual groups. In Part 5, our coverage turns to the “Wild West” segment covering various forms of a Managed Service Provider (MSP) model. Part 6 examines four strategy consultancies that offer procurement services to add value. Part 7 focuses on six global consultancies as well as that group's promise and pitfalls. Part 8 looks at the big names in the BPO providers group. Part 9 is the series wrap-up post, which gives stakeholders and CPOs more guidance on the services market and how to use the six types of providers.
In this installment of group coverage, our focus turns to the six featured regional consultancies that pick their specialization in terms of geography, capabilities and service delivery models that help differentiate them from the mega consultancies. And as with the last installment, PRO subscribers can go to the directory to access a detailed PDF profile of each provider that lists company intelligence information — like employee count, services mix, regions covered, competitors and more strategic insights.
Now, let’s dive into these regional consultancies.
