Spend Matters 50/50: State of Flux – A Provider To Watch in 2015

100 companies - 100 days

We announced here and here our two (not ranked) lists: Spend Matters 50 To Know and 50 To Watch firms for 2015/2016. In the first case, this is our view of the 50 solution provider type organisations in the procurement industry that every senior procurement leader should be aware of and understand. The 50 To Watch are the up-and-coming firms  - those with interesting and relatively new solutions for our market. The 50 To Know are the key organisations in our industry that procurement executives need to have on their radar.

Having announced the lists, our US colleagues are now featuring each of the 100 firms in turn with an article giving an overview of each, with some headline Spend Matters thoughts on them. So on this site we will be giving you a brief extract of the US article, plus adding our own comments where we have anything useful to add from a European perspective. Sometimes we do, sometimes we don’t!

Here is what our US colleagues had to say about State of Flux:

"State of Flux is a U.K.-based consultancy with reach across Europe, and a significant growing practice in Australia and New Zealand. It’s also a technology provider with one of the more unique supplier management solutions in the market. As a firm, it’s broader focus area is supplier management, especially around developing strategic supply-oriented relationships ... State of Flux is not just a consultant and technology provider. It’s also at the forefront of thought leadership in the supplier management market, publishing an annual survey that we recommend all procurement folk check out – sort of a “state of the state” of supplier management programs and focus areas."

You can read more here on our US site. As the above excerpt points out, this is a London-based firm so is of course strong in the UK and western Europe, with antipodean connections as well. We can only re-iterate the comments about the annual SRM report as well - definitely worth a look.
