Buyer v8 will continue the trend towards(negating the need for costlier and more resource-intensive ). This allows Ivalua to keep the cost of Deployment Services in check, while at the same time providing a greater value to the client, resulting in higher SaaS Subscription fees.
Our North American successes will fuel several strategic initiatives to further increase market share:

|A permanent office will open in Brazil in Q4 of 2013, based on existing commitments and as part of our strategic initiative in the region.|
Daniel Amzallag, CEO of Ivalua, inc.: ‘Our stellar growth in the U.S. market is a direct result of Ivalua Buyer’s unique flexibility and configurability. Only a few players in the enterprise-class Spend Management Solution space offer a true end-to-end modular solution like ours. Of those who do, none include the flexibility and configurability that Ivalua does. This clearly resonates with the clients.’
