The Vendor-free Discussion Forum is a great tool to validate supplier claims, find out what other companies are experiencing with specific technology issues and network with industry colleagues about general procurement practices.  Having such independent, real life references adds credence to the advice we provide to our internal clients.  --Sourcing Manager, Major U.S. financial organization

The Vendor-free Discussion Forum gives me instant access to my professional peers in an online community.  It's a tool that allows me to stay current regarding new vendor policies, practicies and "ploys."  I also have access to documents and tools being used in real deals.  It's well worth the price of membership!  --Director, IT Services, International multimedia company
