The Smart Cube Recognised in Spend Matters Almanac 50 Providers to Know in 2015


CHICAGO – 06 May 2015: The Smart Cube, a global professional services firm specialising in custom research and analytics, announced that it has been included in the Spend Matters  Almanac 50/50 list of Providers to Know in 2015, for the second consecutive year. Companies selected for inclusion on the list are distinguished from their peers based on their strong product or
service offering in the marketplace.

Spend Matters, the largest provider of independent research and online content written specifically for procurement and supply chain professionals, describes the companies on the 50 to Know list as members who deliver procurement value—the practitioners, advisors, or consultants that procurement professionals should always be well versed on.

“The 50/50 list is the product of great debate and discussion by all the analysts on the Spend Matters team,” says Jason Busch, Founder and Group Managing Director of Spend Matters. “It literally takes months, and tons of back and forth. We are thrilled to release our 2015 list and congratulate all of those providers and organizations that made the list. Many of the choices were not easy. In just over a year since launch, the Spend Matters Almanac has become the most important go-to reference source for those seeking to research the provider community within procurement.”

“To be considered among the foremost providers in the industry is an honor and truly underscores our commitment to serving procurement practitioners across the globe,” says Omer Abdullah, The Smart Cube’s Co-founder and Managing Director. “We pride ourselves on becoming a true extension of our clients’ procurement and supply chain teams by delivering actionable insights through research and analytics, that help them reach their corporate and financial goals.”

In addition to its second annual appearance on the Spend Matters Almanac 50 to Know list, The Smart Cube received a Best Service Provider Award from Procurement Leaders magazine in 2014. Omer Abdullah was recently named a Supply & Demand Chain Executive “Pro to Know” for the 6th consecutive year. They have also been ranked #1 out of all knowledge process outsourcing (KPO) firms in a past survey produced by The Black Book of Outsourcing. The company was also among NASSCOM’s ‘Emerge 50 for 2010 in the off-shoring industry’ and has also been recognized
in prior years by the Great Place to Work Institute as a top-three professional services employer in India.
