SoftCo named AP Automation leader by both Customers and Analysts in latest Spend Matters’ SolutionMap

News - 25 Mar 2020

SoftCo, the leading global provider of financial process automation solutions, is delighted to announce that it has been named a Value Leader within the newly released AP Automation SolutionMap by Spend Matters in the key “nimble persona” category. Value Leaders are defined by Spend Matters as those who score above average with both analysts and customers.

SoftCo has also been recognized within the Customer Leader quadrant, demonstrating above-average customer scores for the four remaining persona categories.

SolutionMap is a quadrant ranking system made up of a rating from SolutionMap analysts and customer scoring, both carrying equal weight. This allows for a clear separation of real-life user experience feedback versus the analysts’ technical capabilities ranking. From this, users can clearly identify how a procurement technology vendor is perceived through different lenses.


“SolutionMap is the great equalizer between buyers and sellers of procurement technology solutions,” according to Jason Busch, Founder, Spend Matters.

“It is the only benchmarking methodology that is fully transparent, considers equal parts technology analyst and customer scoring (individually and separately), and allows business users to create a one-to-one map based on their requirements to what technology vendors can provide based on demonstrated, generally available capability.”


“We truly are delighted to be ranked as a Value Leader in Spend Matters’ SolutionMap for AP Automation,” said Anton Scott, CEO of SoftCo.

“In a matter of days, SoftCo will turn 30 years old and over the course of those years, we have worked with organizations and helped them to increase productivity, reduce costs, and ensure they meet their compliance obligations. Our customers are the most important thing to us, so to have scored above average by all five persona types is a real honor”.
