Here in Part Three, we assess nine different providers of ADSA solutions. This is not a complete market survey of relevant offerings, but rather a sampling of some important established and upcoming players. The assessment of each solution provider in the report is organized into five sections as follows:
Target Customer Characteristics/Factors Driving Adoption—Characteristics of typical target customers and what is driving their adoption of the solution. This includes a description of which industries and which size companies this solution focuses on, with a list of some example customers.
User Roles Supported—A list of the primary user functional roles that the solution supports (e.g., procurement, logistics, etc.).
Functionality Supported—Key functionality provided by the platform.
Pricing, ROI, Time-to-Value—The structure and basis for pricing, how ROI is achieved, services offered, and what is the typical implementation time and time-to-value.
Who This Solution is a Good Fit For—A short summary of what types of companies this solution would be most appropriate for.
