Introducing ‘The Analysts’ Reel’ – Podcast Interviews with our Analysts: What They Do and What They Can Do for You
Have you ever wondered who is behind the data-driven, expert-level procurement advisory source that is Spend Matters? The answer: Spend Matters’ dedicated team of procurement technology analysts, whose research and knowledge services are available to the Spend Matters’ audience globally!
In case you don’t already know, Spend Matters is the world’s largest expert information source specifically for procurement and supply chain professionals, enabling CPOs, consultants and technology solution providers to make smart decisions regarding all things procurement, receiving over 1 million views per year. Our content is the culmination of research from our expert team of analysts to provide independent market intelligence, thorough solution provider reviews, insights into future trends and actionable strategies and tactics for better procurement decision-making.
There are three facets to our research and content:
- Daily, free-to-access main site content.
- Pro Subscription service, which offers deep-dive competitive intelligence and vendor coverage, M&A analysis and best practices exploration that cannot be found anywhere else.
- SolutionMap, which ranks solution providers across a range of procurement technology, provides customised buying personas to reflect different organisational needs, compares procurement technology providers, tracks market developments and identifies your best-fit provider.
Our analysts form the backbone to all the content Spend Matters generates. We are incredibly proud that they are perceived as procurement practitioners’ and CPOs’ global go-to-source for all procurement-related technology analysis (we cover contract lifecycle management, contract services/statement of work, e-procurement, independent contract workers, P2P, S2P, I2P, Sourcing, spend and procurement analytics, strategic procurement technologies, supplier relationship management and risk and temp staffing). No other source concentrates as deeply on procurement technology and workflows, the vendors that develop and support it and the users who wish to wield it for more efficient procurement processes.
In order to better acquaint our readers with the wealth of knowledge and advisory that our analysts can provide, Spend Matters is delighted to bring you our newly developed ‘Analysts’ Reel’ — a series of short one-on-one podcast interviews with each analyst. Each episode will cover the analyst’s individual role at Spend Matters, outline their areas of expertise, delve into their current hot-takes on the industry and forecast trends, and the developments in solution technology they have had their eyes on.
The team of analysts consists of:
Jason Busch: Jason is the founder and a Managing Director of Spend Matters. A true procurement tech expert, he has also recently created Spend Matters Nexus, Spend Matters’ research, advisory and networking organisation.
Pierre Mitchell: Pierre is a Managing Director and our Chief Research Officer. He is a recognised procurement expert specialising in supply processes, practices, metrics and enabling tools and services.
Michael Lamoureux: Michael is a lead analyst and futurist, contributing his expertise in the procurement and supply chain areas to our SolutionMap vendor and platform ranking offering.
Xavier Olivera: Xavier is a lead analyst and editor for Spend Matters and Spend Matters Mexico y América Latina.
Andrew Karpie: Andrew is a lead analyst focusing on the evolving contingent workforce and services (CW/S) technology solutions space.
Nick Heinzmann: Nick is Spend Matters’ associate analyst, supporting senior analysts in research and project delivery for clients and covering emerging and niche vendors within the procurement technology sector.
Over the course of the summer – while you have a bit more time out of your hectic schedule to catch up on the latest resources, reading and listening you otherwise don’t have time for – we will roll out our conversations with each analyst, which you can listen to at your leisure. Our podcasts will introduce you to each analyst, bring you procurement news, industry movements and the latest trends in tech to watch out for, and provide you with the procurement advice you didn’t even know was out there!
Look out next week for our first podcast with analyst Nick Heinzmann, and in the meantime check out his bio here.
Thanks to our wonderful summer interns team for their help in compiling this post and our new podcast series: Kelly Hogan, Mia Klein and Rachel Patterson.
