The Spend Matters PRO Vendor Analysis publishes analysis on Cirtuo Guided Strategy Creation™


The Spend Matters PRO Vendor Analysis recently published their analysis of Cirtuo Guided Strategy Creation™, procurement software that automates category strategy creation.

The Spend Matters PRO Vendor Analysis Update gives a refreshed overview of Cirtuo, a globally adopted procurement software solution developed to support strategization.

In a sea of procurement solutions saturating the market, many providers focus purely on the upstream processes, S2C, which is typically considered more strategic than the downstream P2P processes. In addition, many of these solutions support the execution of S2C processes, such as supplier discovery, qualifying suppliers, and sourcing, so digitizing them makes these processes more efficient and collaborative.

“There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.” — Peter Drucker

Even if some S2C and/or sourcing solutions include a category management module, it is often a simple category-based view of the content in the application. Other solutions rarely contain a module that enables the user to define a proper approach to a category. In short, most applications focus on the WHAT and less on the HOW or WHY.

Where does Cirtuo Guided Strategy Creation™ sit in this equation?

Cirtuo retains a market-leading position in the digital procurement market. According to Spend Matters, this owes to the solution’s ability to enable customers to develop sound strategies and by providing them with:

Embedded and precise market intelligence powered by The Smart Cube that is the result of research and market analysis
