Spend Matters Reveals the Rising Stars and Must-Know Firms at ISM2016

It’s all very exciting – yesterday, at the huge Institute for Supply Management's (ISM) annual conference in Indianapolis, the Spend Matters 2016 '50 Providers to Watch' and '50 Providers to Know' lists were announced. This is our third year issuing the lists, with nominations based on independent interviews and briefings conducted by our analyst team, and covering “solutions providers” in the procurement space.

The 50 to Know are the firms that really, every CPO should be aware of and familiar with, whilst the 50 to Watch are often smaller, newer market entrants, many with exciting and innovative technology or ideas.  "Procurement can't be a slave to old technology. Change is coming fast and furious from both new and incumbent providers. At Spend Matters, it's our job to review new procurement technology and service offerings, and provide practitioners with curated vendor intelligence," says Jason Busch, our illustrious founder.

Tom Derry, CEO, ISM said: "Spend Matters continuously provides cutting edge coverage of procurement and supply issues. Their vendor research and analysis is always at the forefront of practitioners' minds. We're excited Spend Matters is releasing the 2016 '50 Providers to Know' and '50 Providers to Watch' listings today at ISM's Annual International Conference: the number one gathering of procurement professionals."

We’ll answer some of the questions we get asked about the lists here tomorrow; meanwhile, you can join Jason Busch and Pierre Mitchell (Chief Research Officer) for a complimentary webinar on May 31st, 2016 at 5pm UK time, 11am US CT as they share their opinions and insights on the 50/50. Register here.
