Rise in demand for integrated vendor management solutions

End-users prefer vendors that provide integrated and converged software suites as opting for different software may lead to integration issues. Integrated products and software suites from the same vendor have better integration ability and support other functions. As increased complexity of network infrastructure has made integration an important buying criterion, solutions with better integration are finding higher adoption.

"Some of the vendors in the vendor management software market already provide software that can be integrated with other software. Furthermore, there is likely to be a steep rise in the number of players focusing on offering SaaS (News - Alert)-based vendor management software that is compatible with other applications, including marketing technologies," according to Amrita.

Supply chain analytics inbuilt in vendor management software

Supply chain analytics inbuilt in vendor management software enhances collaboration between partners. The sharing of information and collaboration ensures that manufacturers can make use of supply chain partner information to fulfill demand more quickly within order cycle times.

Supply chain business analytics helps build a stronger network of vendors, provides a 360° view of how vendors are performing, where the weak links are, and where the areas of opportunity for vendor management lie. Supply chain business analytics inbuilt in vendor management software helps companies to better monitor vendor lead times, schedules, and fill rates.

Introduction of vendor management mobile apps

The transformation of businesses from paper-based to mobile technology provides enterprises more accurate information and also saves hundreds of hours. The increased use of mobile technology in enterprises helps them to eliminate redundant data entry on delivery receipts, performs physical inventory checks, and retail evaluations. The increasing adoption of mobile devices for business purposes is a major trend in the market. Enterprises are increasingly focusing on using the mobile vendor management app to improve vendor relationships, enhance supply chain and customer service, increase productivity, and lower costs.

The key vendors are as follows:

  • IBM Emptoris
  • Intelex Technologies
  • MasterControl
  • MetricStream
