The report, "E-Procurement Market and Vendor Landscape," was written by Deborah R. Wilson, research vice president, Gartner and Nigel Rayner, research vice president, Gartner.

Of more than sixty candidates for inclusion, thirty-two met the inclusion criteria for a full rating in this report, including meeting the following seven inclusion requirements: size, growth, innovation, product ownership, punch-out support, references and scope. The report features these thirty-two e-procurement solutions providers and rates each against eleven elements spanning from platform capabilities to customer satisfaction. According to the report, "Market requirements for e-procurement have evolved over the past two years as the solution has progressed into a mainstream application." The report continues, "We've seen many vendors make significant investments to improve usability, and we've noted enhancements in PDA support, cloud-based delivery capabilities and model-driven business process workflow support."

"We believe the Gartner report affirms e-procurement software as an essential business tool in our cost-conscious culture," said Rob Bernshteyn, CEO, Coupa. "Gartner's thorough evaluation of the e-procurement market provides companies with the knowledge they need to select the best vendor for their business. We are proud to be included and recognized."
