Procurement Provider to Watch/Know Lists Released Today by Spend Matters at ISM2017

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - May 22, 2017) - Spend Matters released the 4th annual '50 Provider to Know/50 Providers to Watch' lists today in conjunction with the annual ISM conference.

"It's great to see procurement technology and solutions evolving so quickly from year-to-year. With the growing adoption and usage of disruptive technologies (e.g. machine learning / artificial intelligence, Internet-of-things, blockchain, cloud, platform-as-a-service, etc.) for procurement applications in all key solution areas, we expect providers to continue to redefine and expand their capabilities faster than before," says Jason Busch, Founder and Head of Strategy at Spend Matters, "We're excited to announce the providers that are leading the charge at ISM's annual conference -- a celebration of leadership and innovation within the supply management community."

As in previous years, the lists will generate keen interest at ISM2017 where many will receive their recognition plaques on the exhibit floor. "Spend Matters continuously provides cutting edge coverage of procurement and supply issues -- as well as invaluable tools such as SolutionMap and Almanac to assess available technologies. We're excited Spend Matters is releasing the 2017 '50 Providers to Know' and '50 Providers to Watch' listings again at ISM's Annual International Conference, the largest supply management conference in the world," says Tom Derry, CEO, Institute for Supply Management (ISM).
