Zer’s brand Promena, which is a strategic procurement software, meanwhile, also made the list (in the “Software Platforms and Solutions” quadrant for large accounts), taking a place alongside globally-recognized service providers.

‘Closely followed by procurement professionals’
According to Zer General Manager Mehmet Apak, ISG’s Provider Lens List is extremely influential in the competitive world of digital solutions. “It is closely followed by supply chain and procurement professionals from all over the world,” Apak says. “Lists like ISG Provider Lens™ serve to raise brand awareness in international markets and enhance Turkey’s role in the global procurement ecosystem.”

Underlining that global demand for Promena had recently increased by 50%, Apak went on to assert that “Zer’s inclusion in the ISG Provider Lens™ “is a natural reflection of the qualities we bring to all stakeholders – qualities such as resilience and agility.” Both these qualities are crucial, he adds, “in a business environment that is increasingly unpredictable and in which priorities are constantly changing.”
