Procurement M&A and Investment Intelligence
Research, data & advisory for investment, due diligence, M&A and strategic decisions
Solution & Market Due Diligence
Our approach combines industry and business-level analysis with data-driven, atomic insight into product strengths and weaknesses. Make the choice between off-the-shelf subscriptions and reports or granular unpublished data and insights with or without interpretation and advisory. Sponsors can work with us actively or consume research passively. Outside advisors can also license the library of reports and data to support specific transaction intelligence.
Technical Due Diligence
It is increasingly difficult to separate technology/architecture diligence from product and solution-level diligence. Development environments, architecture, code and platform-level considerations directly impact the rate of innovation and drive (or reduce) investment and, if applicable, integration risk. In recent quarters, sponsors made the choice to leverage Spend Matters’ deep technical experience alongside other diligence components over 50% of the time.
Customer Satisfaction & Due Diligence
With reference data spanning 1,000+ companies using procurement and finance solutions, we set the benchmark for quantitative and qualitative understanding of customer satisfaction. Choose between off-the-shelf reports or unpublished, deeper peer benchmarks. Or gather custom insights in days — not weeks.
