The Smart Cube-Cirtuo partnership — a game changer for category managers

category management

Last month, a procurement solutions partnership was announced between two solution providers that will transform the category strategy development process for many practitioners. Long acknowledged as a time-consuming and arduous exercise full of inconsistent methodologies, category management has often time fallen by the wayside as procurement functions prioritize other processes. But that’s about to change.

Supplier and category management solution provider Cirtuo, whose AI-assisted Guided Strategy Creation (GSC) capability is what differentiates the firm in the market (according to our analyst Nick Heinzmann in his Cirtuo Vendor Analysis), and procurement intelligence and analytics provider The Smart Cube have partnered to bring deep category intelligence to accelerate and enrich the category strategy creation process.

The move is anticipated to be a game changer for category managers.
