    Choice Is Good

    Keertan Rai Journeyman

      The vendor market place for business commerce solutions is a cluttered space by any measure.  While some have pioneered as a one-stop-shop for Collaborative Sourcing and Contract Management, Procure to Pay and Collaborative Finance solutions, many others have excelled in providing specialized point solutions ( eg- Supplier Information/ Performance Management solutions, P2P solutions, CLM solutions, Invoice Management etc).

       

      I would be forgiven if I’d say that the customer is spoilt for choice. With differing needs, priorities and technology adaption maturity across multiple teams in the organization, there is surely a case to work with a myriad set of specialist product vendors that offer point solutions with a slew of cool features and dashboards to go along.  Or does it hold merit to have an eye on the big picture and opting for an end-to-end business commerce solutions provider who addresses business challenges more than being a technology provider.
