February 16, 2012 – SpendMap, a leading provider of cost effective software solutions for companies that are trying to streamline their procurement processes and better control their spending, today announced The Free-Procurement Project.
“It’s the first of its kind. We are thrilled to announce the world’s first free e-procurement system”, said Darin Portnoff, VP Sales and Marketing of SpendMap. “The Free-Procurement Project brings the benefits of Purchase Order Software and e-Procurement to small businesses and small buying groups in larger organizations. Since the software is free to all, anyone can start saving time and money today, regardless of company size or project budget”.
Following in the footsteps of AVG Software, Google, Facebook and other pioneering software companies that give their software away for free, SpendMap is offering the world’s first free system of its type.
“We have enjoyed 22 amazing and profitable years in mid market e-procurement and plan to continue to do so. Nevertheless, we are increasingly curious about the small business market”, said Mr. Portnoff. “How many of your friends work as professionals, or contractors, or just small business owners? How many small healthcare offices and insurance brokers and small manufactures are there? How much “stuff” does your neighborhood gym purchase each week?”
With something like 5,000,000 small companies worldwide with between 10 and 100 employees, the small business market represents a huge growth opportunity for SpendMap.
“So that’s what we’re starting with – a proven piece of software and a huge untapped market. We’re going to get started there and see where it takes us”, said Mr. Portnoff.
