Spend Matters, launched in 2004, was the first blog in the procurement and supply chain sector. It has expanded to become a respected global content community and claims to publish more research than all of the traditional industry analyst firms combined. The SolutionMap offering ranks procurement/supply chain technology (with input from both customers and analysts) tailored for organizational needs. In addition to SolutionMap, Spend Matters network sites include Spend Matters UK/EU-MX/LA, Chief Procurement Officer, Almanac, MetalMiner, and Public Spend Forum/EU. Spend Matters publishes free research, as well as premium content for Spend Matters PRO members. Spend Matters offers a wide range of coverage areas including, but not limited to, eProcurement/Procurement, Supply Chain Management, Contingent Workforce, Sourcing, and Commodities.
