Today, it was announced that NPI has been named to Spend Matters 50 Providers to Watch list for 2018 (more details in this morning’s announcement). We’re proud of this accomplishment for many reasons – not the least of which is that we think this is indicative of something bigger happening in IT sourcing.
Enterprise spend in the IT category is huge, and will only get bigger. So, IT sourcing is evolving – quickly. Companies are becoming smarter and more sophisticated about the way they buy IT because they realize the risk of overspending is a multi-million dollar threat to the business.
Add software license compliance concerns to the mix, and IT sourcing has never been more challenging.
Arming IT buying teams with transaction-specific price benchmark analysis and negotiation intel is a 21st century IT sourcing best practice. Providing them with access to vendor-specific software license optimization experts is a must.
NPI provides these services to clients every day – and we achieve multi-million dollar savings as a result.
NPI’s inclusion on the Spend Matters 50 Providers to Watch list reflects an important market need, and the material impact that our services deliver. To our knowledge, there hasn’t been a company like NPI included on the list before. We’re proud to be the first!
