The Smart Cube named a Spend Matters ’50 Providers to Know’ for 2021
London/Chicago, 13 October 2021: The Smart Cube, a global provider of strategic research and analytics solutions, has been named as one of Spend Matters ‘50 Providers to Know’ for 2021.
Spend Matters is the leading solution intelligence source for procurement and supply chain professionals. The annual 50 Providers to Know and 50 Providers to Watch lists are determined by the entire Spend Matters analyst team to represent the best of the commercial providers that serve enterprise-level procurement organisations.
The 50 Providers to Know list comprises industry-leading, proven providers – the best-in-class companies in the procurement and supply chain market, who lead the charge on new procurement technologies and services, setting the industry standard. Vendors listed are independently selected over multiple rounds of debate, focusing on factors such as innovation, market presence, tech competency and solution delivery.
Over the past year, The Smart Cube has strengthened its position in the market, addressing the evolving intelligence and analytics needs of procurement teams worldwide and across industry sectors, including:
- Investing in solutions with new capabilities and technology – most recently Supplier Risk Intelligence and Commodity Intelligence
- Further developing and growing the user base for Amplifi PRO, its on-demand digital procurement intelligence platform
- Extending its partnership ecosystem, including partnering with Bureau van Dijk to strengthen the Supplier Risk Intelligence solution with robust data, and making procurement intelligence and decision-making tools available through Coupa’s Business Spend Management platform
“Never has procurement technology been more front of mind for businesses. With companies heavily scrutinizing their supply chains and bottom lines to protect against volatility, the procurement technology space has in 2021 gained only greater notoriety — from customers and investors alike,” said Nick Heinzmann, research analyst at Spend Matters.
“In the context of global shocks, innovative new take on what ‘source-to-pay’ includes and an urgent re-evaluation of what businesses should value beyond the balance sheet, we’re pleased to present Spend Matters’ annual ’50 Providers to Know’, ’50 Providers to Watch’ and ‘Future 5’ listees, determined by the entire Spend Matters analyst team to represent the best of the technology providers that serve procurement, finance and supply chain organizations.”
Commenting on the news, The Smart Cube’s co-founder and MD Omer Obdullah, said: “It is a privilege to be awarded a place on the Spend Matters ‘50 Providers to Know’ list. This recognition from an influential industry analyst reflects our work over the past year to strengthen what we bring to the procurement market, including new partnerships to address evolving intelligence and analytics needs, and major updates to Amplifi PRO, our on-demand digital procurement intelligence platform.”
