ProcureTech and Kearney collaborate to define the 100 pioneering digital procurement companies that are transforming enterprises.

ProcureTech and Kearney, the global management consultancy, today announces an alliance to create the ProcureTech100, the definitive global list of 100 pioneering procurement technology, data and analytics solutions.  ProcureTech100 will provide unique visibility and access to the dynamic, diverse, future focused solutions that are empowering transformation in procurement.

The appetite for digital procurement is growing significantly and the current pandemic has accentuated this, with the market estimated to grow by 10% CAGR from 2021 to 2026[1]. However, many buyers are finding the current digital landscape complex or hard to keep up with, and as a result the sourcing and implementation of digital procurement solutions frequently under delivers against objectives.

“One of the biggest challenges for procurement leaders is finding digital procurement solutions that solve their individual challenges, and ultimately rapidly deliver ROI,” said ProcureTech’s CEO, Lance Younger. “Working in partnership with Kearney we will identify technology, data and analytics solutions that are innovative, intuitive and intelligent, whether from disrupters or established providers.”

Elouise Epstein, Partner at Kearney said, “Procurement has moved into the platform era where we adopt a flexible ecosystem of value creating tools. This future proof approach, well established in other domains, allows companies to quickly adopt sophisticated, targeted technologies that evolve to meet the needs of today and the challenges of tomorrow. The ProcureTech100 will help the procurement industry to identify the latest and greatest technology, data and analytics solutions that will transform our collective procurement function, create short-term benefits, and enable long-term value in the supply chain.”

ProcureTech100 will review over 4,000 solutions across all procurement related capabilities from sourcing, contract management and sustainability to risk, collaboration, supplier management and payments. We will apply statistical analysis over 50 key data points including growth, security, customer, financial, innovation, employee data and customer reviews to create a short-list of 150-170 companies. Over 60 global procurement leaders, technology experts and B2B investors will review the short-list across 14 categories. This will comprise the ProcureTech100. Unique categories will include growth, social impact, customer satisfaction, innovation, B2B marketplaces and analytics. The initial ProcureTech100 list will be announced in Autumn, then on an annual basis.

The ProcureTech Kearney collaboration will highlight the innovation and momentum in this rapidly evolving digital procurement ecosystem will accentuate procurement’s business impact. “If we can get procurement digitalisation right, the potential is huge, in the best-case scenario, procurement could become a competitive differentiator, anchoring the supply chain and driving collaboration with a wider ecosystem of partners” said Adrian Friederich, Maersk Growth.

The ProcureTech team announce the launch of the ProcureTech100, the definitive global procurement technology, data and analytics solutions.

The ProcureTech100 has been launched in response to rapid growth of the digital procurement market and is a part of a powerful, global, live platform dedicated to procurement. The ProcureTech100 will showcase the 100 pioneering digital procurement solutions, from the digital procurement ecosystem of over 4,000 vendors, and will be announced at a virtual event in Autumn 2021.  


The demand for digital procurement solutions continues to grow rapidly and has accelerated through the recent pandemic. The market is now estimated to grow by 10.2% CAGR from 2021 to 2026 [1] as the need for solutions to mitigate supply risks, improve innovation and sustainability, all whilst maintaining profitability increases in importance. Despite this growth, the increase in variety and options plus the complexity of the solutions available means sourcing and implementing digital solutions frequently under-delivers against objectives.

“Enabling digital enablement ideas to thrive at speed is a 2021 business imperative, especially to scale sustainable procurement,” says Thomas Udesen, CEO, Bayer and Co-Founder of the Sustainable Procurement Pledge.

ProcureTech will provide a unique solution to this. The comprehensive platform will review over 4,000 digital solutions globally across all industries and all procurement capabilities from sourcing and contract management to supplier management and risk. By applying statistical analysis of over 50 data points including growth, security and innovation, plus live customer reviews we will create a shortlist of 150 to 170 businesses. Then insight and experience from over 60 panellists, a combination of procurement leaders, investors and technology experts will help define the final 100 solutions across 14 categories including growth, social impact and customer satisfaction.

ProcureTech‘s CEO and Founder, Lance Younger said “The ProcureTech Ecosystem is one of the most dynamic, progressive and innovative elements of the enterprise. Thousands of pioneering procurement technology, data and analytics companies bring the ecosystem to life, supercharging leading procurement teams across the globe with the latest innovation and insight.”

All digital procurement solution providers can collaborate on the platform for free, sharing their solution profile and requesting customer reviews. Procurement and technology leaders are also free to use the platform, as a one stop-shop for digital procurement resources, solutions and to complete customer reviews. Recognising the importance of customer reviews and the collective intelligence in the procurement community, ProcureTech are planting 10 trees for every review completed.

“The ProcureTech100 digital procurement solutions are driving enterprise transformation. We are excited to be collaborating with the industry to showcase these pioneers, creating greater visibility and access to the digital procurement ecosystem,” says Younger.
