| Report
Jason Busch and Michael Lameoureux from Spend Matters Research have provided an in depth review of the IBX Business Network and its functionalities. 
 
“IBX is not standing still,” says Jason Busch. “Spend Matters recommends that all Global 2000 procurement organizations looking to either extend the capabilities of their ERP environments or explore a set of mature, broad and deep source-to-pay and supplier network capabilities add Capgemini IBX to their shortlists.”
 
Capgemini IBX Business Network continues to quietly build momentum with a broad set of procurement capabilities, many of which are not only deeper than its competitors but also offer a nuanced approach to complementing and enabling existing ERP procurement environments in a manner that can bring procurement and IT organizations together,” write Jason Busch (Founder and Head of Strategy) and Michael Lamoureux (Research Analyst) in this recently published research paper  dedicated to the IBX Business Network.
 
Areas of IBX’s offering noted as strengths by the Spend Matters research paper include the spot-buy function (“Simple in concept, the solution is elegant and clever in execution.”), the invoice management dashboard (“… enabling a supplier to manage all of their invoices in a single place takes the IBX portal and dashboard solution a step further than most.”), supplier identification and the IBX Procurement Intelligence module.
