September 3, 2009 – “SpendMap, a leading supplier of cost effective software solutions for companies that need to streamline their procurement processes and better control their spending, has introduced to market an on-demand (hosted, SaaS) version of its category leading e-procurement system”, said Darin Portnoff, VP Sales and Marketing of SpendMap.
With no hardware to buy, no up-front licensing fees and easy monthly payments starting around $100, SpendMap On-Demand eliminates the up-front investment typically associated with e-procurement software.
“In today’s tough economic climate, companies of all sizes are considering hosted/SaaS solutions, even for mission-critical applications that in the past would only be installed in-house “, says Mr. Portnoff. “Aside from simplifying the IT side of the project, our customers can now expense the low monthly fees rather than having to fight for CAP-EX budget approval, which is obviously hard to come by these days.”
Unlike other SaaS e-procurement vendors that offer very limited functionality and experience, SpendMap On-Demand includes all of the features of SpendMap On-Premise, based on 20 years of ongoing development and input from hundreds of customer organizations and thousands of users.
“In addition to a more complete solution, we also stand out from other SaaS vendors that promote a do-it-yourself approach”, says Mr. Portnoff. “Our goal at SpendMap is to help our clients achieve the business benefits of effective Spend Management, not just sell them software. We take an active role in helping our clients streamline their procurement processes and better control their spending, using our tried-and-true software technology, our deep domain experience and a high-touch approach.”
A web browser is all that is needed to use SpendMap On-Demand, which is housed in a SAS 70 Type II certified facility, so SpendMap customers can rest assured that their valuable data is secure and always accessible.
