3 reasons why we’re cool (and why Gartner agrees): Xeeva named a 2018 Gartner Cool Vendor

August 28, 2018 | Marissa Bialick

We’re not like a regular procurement software company, we’re a cool procurement software company. And according to their 2018 report of Cool Vendors in Procure-to-Pay Applications, Gartner thinks so too.

That’s a pretty big deal, and we’re psyched that Gartner is telling the world that we’re just as cool as we already know we are! For those of you who aren’t familiar with Xeeva already, let’s break down three reasons why we believe Xeeva was cool enough to make the 2018 Gartner Cool Vendor list:

  1. Our tech

    Our amazing tech is what we pride ourselves most highly on, and is at the core of everything we do. Gartner agrees, stating in the report, “Xeeva is also cool because it uses its patented AI to automate the many tedious tasks that P2P professionals do manually today.” While there are other companies that claim to have artificial intelligence, we’re different because our patented AI actually drives real results. Gartner further elaborates on how cool our AI is, because it “takes unstructured spend data scattered across various systems, cleanses it and categorizes it down to the line level to unearth new savings opportunities.”

  2. Our team

    At Xeeva, our team works together towards one common vision: harmonizing business commerce. #TeamAwesome is a diverse, curious, and fearless group who isn’t afraid of change or hard work. And while we do work hard, we also have a pretty fun and awesome culture. We actually enjoy spending time together at monthly happy hours and celebrating not-so-common holidays (especially those that involve food). Lots of companies might say it, but we really do love what we do — and it shows through our shared passion for providing our clients with real results.

  3. Our customers

    Our customers are the coolest around, and make us even cooler by association. Many of our loyal customers have been with us since the beginning of our journey, which shows the type of forward-thinking companies we have the pleasure of working with. Having such cool customers allows us to be even bolder in our thinking and inspires us to go above and beyond to make their lives better. If it isn’t obvious already, we think our customers are the best (and they think we’re pretty great, too)! If you don’t want to just take our word for it, Gartner says companies who should care about Xeeva are “Indirect procurement organizations with an early adopter mindset, looking to experiment with what AI is capable of in procurement.”

Now can you see what we’re so excited about?!

We clearly had to do something to celebrate how cool we are (and how cool Gartner thinks we are), so we treated ourselves to happy hour and some “cool” ice cream sundaes!

Being named a cool vendor is an amazing step in our journey towards our vision of harmonizing business commerce. We’re so proud of our team for this accomplishment and excited to do even more amazing things in the future!

All that being said, we think this is a pretty cool achievement. On to the next one!
