I am really pleased to be able to announce the availability of the first ever Gartner rating of the e-procurement market. Critical Capabilities for Best of Breed E-Procurement Vendors assesses the capabilities and prospects of fourteen vendors including Ariba, Basware, Birchstreet Systems, Coupa, Elcom, ePlus, Ketera, Perfect Commerce, Periscope, PurchasingNet, Proactis, Puridiom, SciQuest, and Verian. These vendors were rated 199 features, grouped into eleven ‘critical capabilities.’ Ratings are provided against four use cases: the shared service, the public sector implementation, the unified purchasing /e-procurement solution, and the ERP extension.
Speaking of ERPs, a second installment to this project is on its way. The next report will evaluate ERP vendor e-procurement offerings against the same criteria.
