50 Providers to Know for 2017

After months of debate, we are excited to reveal our 50 Providers to Know for 2017.

The Spend Matters 50 Providers to Know highlights firms that continue to lead the charge on new procurement technologies and services driving innovation and changing the way we do business.

There are a few key trends in this year's 50/50 lists, but perhaps the overall theme is that if you are not growing and innovating, you are dying. Many slots have opened up on the 50 to watch list because some of those providers have crossed the proverbial chasm to our 50 to Know list. On the flipside, some providers have dropped off the list because they have not been growing or innovating.

Take a look at the providers our analysts believe are worth considering for your procurement projects:

Why the 50 Providers to Know list?

At Spend Matters, we routinely review the latest procurement technology and service offerings. This uniquely positions us to help you with your vendor selection process. The 50/50 lists are the result of intense debate, discussion and refinement among all Spend Matters analysts, and reflect our unbiased, independent view of the organizations you should know and watch.

This is the fourth year issuing the Spend Matters ‘Providers to Know’ list and it’s never been this competitive and dynamic. Note that the companies on the lists were independently selected by the Spend Matters analyst team based on each provider’s merits.

The providers on the 50 to Know and 50 to Watch lists will be featured throughout the year in Spend Matters and referenced in the Spend Matters Almanac. The Almanac is a vendor intelligence directory for modern procurement covering more than 24 categories — including our unbiased reviews — and serves as a resource for anyone interested in our view of the procurement service provider landscape.
