Spend Matters is the market’s premier procurement advisory services firm, known for deep subject matter expertise in the supply chain and procurement sector.

Spend Matters created the Spend Matters Almanac to provide a standardized guide to the market’s leading supply chain and procurement solution providers.

The list is compiled based on rigorous and comprehensive research by Spend Matters analysts.

“The 50/50 list is the product of great debate and discussion by the analysts on the Spend Matters team. Compiling the list literally takes months of analysis and involves substantial back and forth. We are thrilled to release our 2015 list and congratulate all of the providers and organizations that made the list. Many of the choices were not easy. In just over a year since launch, the Spend Matters Almanac has become the most important go-to reference source for those seeking to research the solution provider community” said Jason Busch, Managing Director of Research at Spend Matters. “Spend Matters defines the ’50 to Know’ as companies designated as members of the established old guard of proven providers. Simply put, they’re companies that practitioners should have some basic information on at all times given their status as market leaders.”

“For years Spend Matters has been a respected, impartial information resource for Aravo’s customer base and the extended practitioner community” said Michael Saracini, Chief Executive Officer at Aravo. “The Aravo team is honored to be designated as a part of Spend Matters 50/50 list for the second year in a row.”
