The ProcureTech100 is the definitive 100 pioneering digital procurement solutions.
Portals. Embedding AI and automation. Low code platforms.
Here, we reveal a little bit about the pioneers in the Supplier Management category.
“The pace of digital innovation and ability for digital procurement solutions to scale over the last year has been impressive. Exceptional CEOs and Founding teams are inspiring a generational change to the digital procurement ecosystem solving global challenges.”
Lance Younger, Founder & CEO, ProcureTech
The 2022 ProcureTech100 were selected from over 4,000+ digital solutions from across the planet, using enriched data and analysis, combined with the collective experience of more than 60 procurement leaders, technology experts and B2B investors. Pioneers have been identified across 14 different categories.
The Supplier Management category focus is defined by the customers for each company, whether the focus is commercial, collaboration or contractual.
Suppliers and customers are chasing the network effect as both sides seek to reduce administrative burden through leveraging standardised supplier due diligence, vetted by peers on the network.
There has been an increase in use of portals for management as well as embedding Al & Automation for increased process efficiency and improved supplier experience.
Emergence of low code platforms bring another lens to the build vs buy decision as they enable organisations to meet and adapt to unique requirements and through configuration instead of net new development.
There is also an ever-growing focus on sustainability which also aligns with an increasing interest in Supply Chain traceability. The imminent Supply Chain Act is increasing pressure on organisations in terms of supplier due diligence and reporting.
Supplier management solutions are defining and delivering new value for more mature procurement teams, typically as an integrated information and intelligence hub.
