London/Chicago, 17/18 October 2022: 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 2022.

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.

The Smart Cube was selected as it has, over the past year, strengthened its position in the market, addressing the evolving intelligence and analytics needs of procurement teams worldwide and across industry sectors, including:

  • Upgrading its Supplier Risk Intelligence solution, helping companies identify, monitor and mitigate risks not just at the supplier level, but to address broader disruptions that pose risks to the entire supply chain.
  • Introducing a new offering from its Commodity Intelligence solution to help businesses address supply and price volatility in the top 40 most affected commodities. In the first half of 2022  alone, The Smart Cube grew its Commodity Intelligence client base by more than 90%. 
  • Announcing innovative developments to Amplifi PRO, including 40 brand new category insights dashboards with key supplier risks that support procurement teams to proactively respond to current and future volatility – bringing together all in-depth category intelligence into one easy-to-consume view. 
  • Launching new partnerships that enable customers to access data and insights in a streamlined way, including with Polymerupdate, a leading producer of real-time news feeds; Craft, the leading supplier intelligence platform; and JAGGAER, a global leader in Autonomous Commerce.

Commenting on the news, The Smart Cube’s co-founder and MD Omer Abdullah, said: “It is a privilege to be awarded a place on the Spend Matters ‘50 Providers to Know’ list.
