Solution streamlines sourcing process, expands ISG’s addressable market

STAMFORD, Conn. — Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm, today announced the launch of ISG Tango™, a groundbreaking sourcing platform that digitizes all elements of ISG’s market-leading sourcing transactions business to better serve clients, improve transaction speed and efficiency and allow ISG to expand into other market segments. 

Developed over the past year, the platform solution, available to enterprise buyers and service providers, draws on ISG’s unmatched data assets, intellectual property and proprietary tools, powered by AI to automate contracting and provide real-time predictive insights that streamline the entire transaction process and accelerate time to agreement.

“Speed, real-time transaction data, provider evaluations and other market insights are important to our clients as they navigate a more complex sourcing environment,” said Michael P. Connors, chairman and CEO of ISG. “ISG Tango delivers on all counts and strengthens our position as the industry’s sourcing advisor of choice.”

ISG is the world’s leading sourcing advisor and the industry pioneer. Working with the largest global companies (the G-2000), the firm supports more than half of advised sourcing transactions and influences more than $200 billion of global technology spend annually.

Connors said ISG Tango will allow ISG to penetrate the underserved midmarket. “We believe this platform-based offering, combined with our advisory expertise, will allow us to offer a level of sourcing advisory support that would be attractive and affordable to the midmarket, thereby expanding our revenue opportunities.”

An advisor-led solution, ISG Tango is built on an AI-supported software platform powered by ISG’s market-leading transaction data and proprietary sourcing methodology and tools. The platform features ISG’s provider research, market intelligence and candidate provider qualification system, to help enterprises make informed buying decisions, and a fully integrated service catalogue and an automated contracting tool that dramatically cuts the time and effort needed to generate contracts.

In addition, ISG Tango provides a common environment for buyers, sellers and their legal teams to work with ISG advisors on sourcing transactions. It features a secure data room with role-based authorization to manage the entire process of data collection, team interaction and contracting, efficiently and securely.

“With 24×7 access and real-time status views, ISG Tango provides full transparency throughout the entire sourcing process and simplifies interactions with all key stakeholders, leading to faster and more effective collaboration and decision-making,” said Kathy Rudy, chief data and analytics officer of ISG who co-led the development of ISG Tango.

Clay Calhoun, partner and ISG Tango market leader who co-led the development of ISG Tango, said client reception thus far has been enthusiastic. “Enterprise clients and service providers who participated in our focus groups have praised the platform for the visibility and speed to transaction it provides. To quote one client: ‘The use of the pre-populated contract documents and base case development templates was a real time saver. And the ability to model with the market pricing data helped us to accurately assess the cost, value and savings opportunity of each provider’s solution.’”
