Quadrem Positioned in Challengers Quadrant of Gartner Magic Quadrant for Sourcing Application Suites, 2008

| 0 Comments

Gartner.jpgDallas & Amsterdam, Gartner, Inc. has positioned e-Procurement and SRM provider Quadrem International in the Challengers Quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Sourcing Application Suites, 2008.  "In my opinion, our position in the Challenger's Quadrant by Gartner confirms our ability to deliver sourcing solutions successfully while also providing a robust offering for tactical and strategic sourcing," Chris Haydon, Quadrem Senior Vice President, Marketing and Global Solutions told SmartProcurement.

According to the report by Gartner Analyst Debbie Wilson, "These vendors (Challengers) have phenomenal references because they are attentive to their customers and deliver solid products that work...the sourcing applications of these vendors are more likely to be adopted as divisional or regional solutions than others, often because of lower prices compared with the competition. Challengers lack the portfolio breadth of vendors in the Leaders and Visionaries quadrants, often following what their customers request to create their road maps."

"Our global supplier network and ability to join sourcing activities seamlessly with procurement processes via ERP connectors differentiate us from other providers," added Haydon. "Additionally we offer substantial supporting services globally, which many customers use to augment their sourcing processes."
