Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

Emptoris is more useful if multiple modules are used simultaneously. For example, we can connect spend analysis and contracts management to generate smart reports and business insights. RFXs can be tied back to contract management and notifications sent out accordingly which helps in efficient vendor management.

How experienced is your organization on eSourcing? The more experienced, the better the fit. How much are you willing to invest? Emptoris is not known for being the least expensive alternative. Are you looking for eSourcing only or integrated solutions? Although it can stay as a stand alone, Emptoris' higher value is the later.

If you have a highly bureaucratic organization that is heavily focused on procurement, Emptoris can provide some value. It seemed to be very good at linking the contract information to procurement for better spend control. If you are trying to implement a standalone contract management solution that allows you to easily create contracts and store them in a central location, this isn't the tool for you. There doesn't appear to be a simplified implementation. In general, when a SaaS solution has a complicated and expensive implementation, I am very skeptical. This does not show that the vendor is trying to move customers forward on a single code base. If that many things need to be done during implementation, you are starting to customize the solution for every customer. This hurts the vendor's ability to scale and make improvements in the future.

Obviously cost is a factor, not only upfront costs but upgrades. What other software does the program integrate with? What is the workflow process for approvals? Is there a built in functionality to support regulatory requirements? Can the dashboard be customized?

Emptoris is well suited for inserting custom criteria to see how contracts can be grouped together. How will you use your contract management software? Is it important that it can be used over a variety of platforms? Will it need to be customized quite a bit? Would you prefer something that can be accessed through a web-app?
