Source-to-Pay+ is Extensive (P36) … Here are some Intake/Orchestration Vendors

As promised in our last installment, Part 35, here is a partial, starting list of intake/orchestration vendors that provide one or more of the following capabilities:

  • Intake management (and requester/stakeholder visibility into the process)
  • Project/process management throughout the source-to-pay cycle
  • Orchestration between multiple applications

As with other every list, we must inform you that this list is in no way complete (as no analyst is aware of every company — and sometimes a new company launches its first product, or a new product literally after one of these lists goes up), is only valid as of the date of posting (as companies sometimes go out of business and acquisitions happen all of the time in our space), and does not include vendors which have project management limited to just one (or more) of their internal modules.

As with our lists of e-Procurement Companies (in Part 7), Spend Analysis Companies (in Part 12), Sacred Cow Companies that do, or support, customized “spend” analysis on Marketing, Legal, and SaaS (in Part 13), Supplier Management Companies (in Part 20), Contract Management Companies (in Part 25), and e-Sourcing Companies (in Part 30), and Invoice-to-Pay/Accounts Payable Companies (Part 33), we provide the company name, URL and LinkedIn URL if available, headquarters country, and list other offerings we are aware of.

Remember that if we say Source-to-Pay, it means that vendor offers modules that cover (baseline) Sourcing, Supplier/Vendor Management, Contract Management, Spend Analytics, e-Procurement, and Invoice-to-Pay/Accounts Payable. As to whether or not SI would consider these modules meeting the majority of baseline functional requirements, you will have to check the previously published starting vendor lists in those areas and other prior coverage on SI (if available).

Do your research, and reach out to an expert for help if you need it in compiling a starting list of relevant, comparable, vendors for your organization and your needs. For many of these vendors, good starting points are the Sourcing Innovation archives, Spend Matters Pro and Gartner Cool Vendor write-ups if any of these sources has a write-up on the vendor.

And while this list is currently (much) smaller than the other lists, as it’s pretty easy to find at least 60 vendors for any core module you want in Source to Pay, and we barely cracked the twenties with this list, we don’t expect it will stay that way for long!

Shout-out to The Revolutionary and The Procurement Dynamo for their thoughts on what vendors might fit into this emerging category!
