Benefits of Using Vendr Over Productiv

Unrivaled Pricing Intelligence
Buyer Guides

Vendr is recognized in the industry for its large pricing database, distinguishing it from Productiv. Its data repository, supported by over $3.3 billion in transactions, provides customers with insights and tailored negotiation strategies. While Productiv offers solid spend management solutions, they differ from Vendr's focus on pricing intelligence, negotiation tactics, on-demand SaaS advisory, and intake-to-procure workflows. Vendr's experience and broad customer base, with over 500 clients, highlights its capability in delivering cost-effective outcomes that extend beyond basic spend management.

On-Demand Negotiation & Advisory
SaaS Advisory

Vendr's team of negotiation specialists has considerable experience in the SaaS domain, differing from Productiv's general focus on spend management. Each Vendr advisor offers specialized insights and tailored strategies for negotiations. This expertise helps clients achieve good outcomes and gain strategic value in each transaction. Productiv, with its broad approach to spend management, does not have the same level of specific negotiation expertise as Vendr.

Personalized White-Glove Experience

Vendr's dedication to personalized support differentiates it from Productiv. Each interaction with Vendr's support team is customized to address their clients' specific needs, aiming to ensure satisfaction and engagement. Productiv's support system is efficient but might not provide the same degree of personalized attention as Vendr's team.

Real-Time Assistance

Real-time support is crucial during negotiations. The immediacy and effectiveness of Vendr's real-time support are notable in the industry. Vendr's team provides quick and informed responses, making the procurement process smoother for clients. This real-time assistance and problem-solving is an area where Vendr differs from Productiv, whose support systems, although capable, may not offer the same immediacy and specialized assistance.

Genuine Collaboration Approach

Vendr focuses on creating a collaborative procurement experience, acting as a partner to its clients. This partnership approach goes beyond the typical client-service provider relationship, creating synergy to improve procurement capabilities. In contrast, Productiv's method, while effective in managing spend, may not provide the same depth of collaboration and shared mission found in Vendr's service model.
