In this two-part series, Eric Arno Hiller interviews Spend Matters founder, Jason Busch, about the growth of the market of Product Cost Management software and the state of the art today.

 

A lot has happened in the world of procurement software in the last 20 years. Purchasing has added a lot of new tools to what was mostly a relationship-focused discipline. These developments include:

  1. Data-rich environments of spreadsheets, MRP and ERP systems
  2. Supply chain management and supplier relationship management systems
  3. Online auctions
  4. Spend analytics tools/product cost management (PCM) software

In this series, I am going to discuss the evolution of these tools and the state of the art.
