Determinews: Celebrating 2016

Before you head off to enjoy the holidays, here’s wishing you a joyous season and a fantastic New Year.

I want to thank you for your interest in Determine. We had an awesome 2016, shaking up the procurement and contract management world with some of the most disruptive technology ever in the space:

  • The new Determine Cloud Platform – the most powerful, capable, scalable S2P and ECLM tool you’ve ever had to empower your teams to make decisions that will impact the bottom line.
  • The first real single UI intuitive enough to be used by all departments – a genuine consumer experience to finally gain total access and control of all your solutions in one place.
  • The most powerful shared platform you’ve ever experienced with robust workflow functionality and analytic capabilities spanning across supplier management, sourcing, procurement, invoicing and contracts – providing you one single source of data truth.
  • Rave reviews and rankings from all the top financial and industry analysts – Gartner, Forrester, PayStream, Spend Matters, giving you trusted validation of how much our solutions can do for you.

Companies tell us they are tired of the planned obsolescence with point solutions and cobbled-together “suites.” They’re turning to us for future-proof technology tools they can grow with – not out of – to achieve their goals.

By “empowering decisions” that drive success, our cloud platform lets you realize savings, manage complexity, mitigate risk and establish a competitive advantage—not just today, but for years to come.

I hope 2017 will be productive and successful for you. Let me know what we can do to help make that happen. Feel free to reach out to me with any comments at team.success@determine.com. And, just in case you missed them, please enjoy the following “Best of 2016” resources.
