How to Find the Right Spend Analysis Solution 

Procurement organizations come in all shapes and sizes, so there is no one-size-fits-all approach to procurement spend analysis. The key is to identify your buyer persona and the right kind of solution to your needs.

Spend Matters SolutionMaps identify five different types of buyer personas for procurement software.

  • Nimble Persona - decentralized, growing or mid-market organizations looking for lower cost or quick-to-implement solutions.
  • Deep Persona -  highly sophisticated organizations looking for best-in-class functionality and tailored support.
  • Configurator Persona - moderate to highly sophisticated organizations with unique or complex supply/value chains and many required integrations
  • Turn-key Persona - outcome-focused organization looking for clear total cost of ownership and clear software and support structures.
  • CIO-friendly Persona - organizations with high IT influence looking for clear IT support and CIO endorsements.

Keep your own buyer persona in mind when you're comparing alternatives and reviewing the Spend and Procurement Analytics score summary report.
