(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120117/NE36384LOGO) According to Jason Busch, founder and lead analyst with Spend Matters: "The short list of solution providers was created to give procurement and finance organizations recommendations on innovative companies from whom they may learn something new and truly get inspired about what's possible." CombineNet was the only sourcing solution provider on the list, cited for its "revolutionary" approach to negotiation and supplier engagement, as facilitated by its advanced e-sourcing solution CombineNet ASAP® and e-sourcing best practices services. The report credits CombineNet for its flexibility in bid collection, which CombineNet refers to as Expressive Bidding®, as well as its support for scenario building, rapid analysis, constraint-based award considerations, and diverse customer use cases across direct and indirect spend categories. As Jason Busch writes in the report: "Everyone engaged in strategic procurement activities, from a CPO down to a category manager or analyst, will learn something that changes how they think about sourcing from talking to CombineNet." The five vendors were also each analyzed in more in-depth research reports, in which CombineNet was described as the best candidate in the competitive e-sourcing market.
