New Data for Contract Management Software Procurement Category Market Research Report from IBISWorld

New Data for Contract Management Software Procurement Category Market Research Report from IBISWorld

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 07, 2015

Contract management software has a buyer power score of 4.2 out of 5. This score indicates that buyers are in a favorable position to negotiate price discounts or package deals from providers. Prices for contract management software have been stable during the past three years, and they are anticipated to remain stable in the three years to 2017. “Due to growing business activity and an increasing utilization of software for business processes, demand for contract management software has grown steadily,” according to IBISWorld business research analyst Dale Schmidt. Despite higher demand, competition and the rising prevalence of cloud computing technology in the market have moderated price increases. Competition has increased as more providers have entered the market, putting pressure on providers to lower prices. California is home to Silicon Valley, a highly concentrated area of technology companies and many of the top computer science universities in the world. As a result, many contract management software providers, such as SAP, IBM and Sciquest, have their headquarters in California. The use of cloud computing technology, meanwhile, has lowered the cost of delivery, and suppliers have passed on these cost savings to buyers in the form of lower prices.

Buyers also benefit from low market risk. Contract management software providers are not dependent on any critical inputs that may interrupt the supply chain or create significant price fluctuations. As a result, buyers can expect reliable and steady access to contract management software to manage their contracts. Also, most providers have seen healthy revenue growth in the past three years, although buyers should be aware that smaller providers might not be as financially stable as larger and more established software publishers.

Buyers also benefit from the high availability of substitutes. “Buyers can use document management software or manual, paper-based systems to manage their contracts instead of this market’s software. In addition, buyers can seek price discounts by comparing prices for these substitutes with the price of contract management software. Furthermore, market share concentration and product specialization are low, which benefits buyers because it indicates that there are a large number of providers that can provide contract management software,” Schmidt says. That said, switching costs are medium, creating some risk that buyers may be locked in with their provider. As such, buyers should take their time to evaluate and select the right supplier.

The LOOP’s revolutionary universal design works with virtually any type and model of cord or cable and is available in an array of nine beautiful translucent colors.

The LOOP was invented by award-winning architect, Scott Rodwin, as a solution to his own tangled earbuds. “I use them every day. They double the lifespan of my earbuds, and make my life a little less stressful.”
