The Spend Matters Analyst Team – What Makes Them Great!

The culmination of Spend Matters’ research efforts, including getting out into the procurement world, meeting vendors, getting to know their products, services and culture inside-out, speaking with suppliers and engaging with the wider procurement community, is in the deep insight we obtain. This we translate into content and advisory, like the unique SolutionMap, which analyses data to rank solution providers across a range of procurement-specific technologies, provides customised buying insight to reflect different organisational needs, compares procurement technology providers, tracks market developments and identifies your best-fit provider.

We also translate it into our subscription Pro service, which offers deep-dive competitive intelligence and vendor coverage, M&A analysis and best practices exploration that cannot be found anywhere else in the procurement industry. We also use it in our Nexus offering, which provides due diligence and strategy support for private equity clients, providing relevant market intelligence and fresh, data-driven analysis for solution provider CEOs, boards and leadership teams. It helps us write our customer-centric reviews, like ‘Make The Case’ and ‘What Makes It Great?’ two series which dig deep into procurement software, work out what works well and what doesn’t, and analyse the capabilities of those who sell or develop it.

So it’s a handy tool this research, which also trickles into our daily free-to-access content on the site, whether that be news stories, new provider introductions, acquisition notices, technology and innovation stories in the market, or general procurement-related market trends, from contingent workforce advice to supply chain risk to high-profile people movements. We don’t often get to talk about ourselves, we are normally too busy talking about all the providers and technology out there. So for once, let’s take a look at who it is that makes up the dedicated team of procurement technology analysts who are responsible for the largest expert information source for procurement and supply chain professionals in the world.

We are incredibly proud that our analysts can offer actionable strategies and tactics for better procurement decision-making to all levels of procurement professional and all stakeholder communities. While they are specialists in contract lifecycle management, contract services/statement of work, e-procurement, independent contract workers, P2P, S2P, I2P, sourcing, spend and procurement analytics, strategic procurement technologies, supplier relationship management and risk and temp staffing, it would be wrong to think of them as pure technology geeks! Our analysts are personable, engaging speakers, great advisers and listeners, and relationship builders; they just happen to be procurement tech nerds too - and very clever.
