Quadrem gains leaders’ quadrant


Gartner has positioned 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,” says Chris Haydon, Quadrem senior vice-president: marketing & global solutions.
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."
Haydon adds: “Our global supplier network and ability to join sourcing activities seamlessly with procurement processes via ERP connectors differentiate us from other providers. Additionally we offer substantial supporting services globally, which many customers use to augment their sourcing processes.”
