JAGGAER is honored to announce it has been named a Leader in Gartner’s 2018 Magic Quadrant Report for Strategic Sourcing Application Suites. JAGGAER (Advantage) was placed highest in the Leader’s quadrant for ability to execute. The report evaluated several Strategic Sourcing suites for capabilities including e-sourcing, spend analysis, contract management, and supply base management (SBM). According to Gartner, “Application leaders for procurement can use this report to assess the top solutions in this market.”

According to the Gartner analysts, “The top three key factors driving vendor selection * are:

 

  • Product functionality (83%)
  • A strong ease of use focus (59%)
  • Overall cost (58%)

* according to the reference clients for the vendors in this Magic Quadrant

As a leader in the industry, we believe that JAGGAER meets all of these objectives. JAGGAER’s product development and market understanding are uniquely positioned to address the primary objectives of a fully functional solution suite. With leading feature sets and a suite that can easily expand to meet customers’ needs, we are confident that JAGGAER meets the top demand drivers, and believe this is why we have been recognized by Gartner.

Powered by advanced analytics and the world’s most engaged supplier network, JAGGAER has a strong global Source to Contract Suite that provides visibility, insight, transparency, and technology to power your procurement strategy. JAGGAER’s solutions have a global presence with local partnerships to help you achieve your goals.

JAGGAER has been recognized as a leader for our solutions by multiple independent analysts, including Gartner. In 2018, Gartner has named JAGGAER a leader in not only the Strategic Sourcing Application Suites Magic Quadrant but also the Procure to Pay Suites Magic Quadrant. “From our perspective, our leadership positions in two Gartner reports create a compelling story: we are delivering a full spectrum of solutions to accommodate the growth of businesses from local to global. Combined with our ability to develop vertically focused solutions across a range of industries, like Manufacturing, CPG, Retail, Logistics and Education, JAGGAER offers a future proof choice for managing every aspect of spend management and the supply chain, ”said Robert Bonavito, CEO , HUNTER.

Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice 2018

In addition to the Gartner Magic Quadrant recognition, check out JAGGAER’s Gartner Peer Insights reviews for Strategic Sourcing Application Suites: “JAGGAER’s Flexibility And Support Have Been Key For Our Success” and “Sourcing Has Been A Valuable Tool”.

The Magic Quadrant reports provide in-depth analyses of individual markets and provide recommendations for evaluating and selecting software suites, while the Customers’ Choice Designation is purely based on feedback and ratings from end users of products and services.  As the only full, end-to-end supply chain provider to be named in all three, JAGGAER is confident that it stands out from our competition as recognized by both analysts and customers alike.

In order to be named a Customers’ Choice, a vendor must have a minimum of 50 published reviews with an average overall rating of 4.2 stars or higher. As of November 26, 2018, JAGGAER has received more reviews than any other company in Strategic Sourcing Application Suites and is also one of only two companies named as a Customers’ Choice in this category.

We believe a key reason for this price from customers is JAGGAER’s global market understanding and strategy, which focuses on local partnerships, localization offerings, and localized service and support teams. We feel that providing local service to companies across the world is the best way to serve our customers.

JAGGAER also believes that the Customers’ Choice Distinction reflects our dedication to our users, and the enthusiasm of our customers who wrote positively about our solution suite. The voices of our customers constantly drive the decisions we make and encourage us to continue innovating, striving to provide the best source-to-pay solution on the market.

As JAGGAER’s CEO, Rob Bonavito, recently said, “JAGGAER feels this distinction represents a validation of the application of innovation to customers’ specific needs. We develop solutions based on actual business use cases, shared by multiple companies in the industries that we serve.”
