Recent acquisitions and product developments are enabling DocuSign to provide a full contract management suite to customers, potentially doubling the company's addressable market. DocuSign's current economic moat is narrow, but its switching costs are high enough to play a major role in protecting its roughly 70% market share over competitors like Adobe (NASDAQ: ADBE).

Dublin, April 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Vendor Management Software Market - Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2021 - 2026)" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. The Vendor Management Software Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 14% over the forecast period (2021 - 2026). Vendor management involves initiating and grooming the relationships the suppliers of the goods and services a buyer needs for day to day operations. The increasing need for reducing the risks, making faster decisions has paved the way for the vendor management software to be integrated with the Vendor Management Software Market. The lack of availability of vendor information and vendor performance exposes the company to increased supply risk and prevents the company's ability to act proactively in dire situations thereby making it imperative for them to look for solutions like VMS that could navigate them through such situations thereby fueling the growth of the VMS throughout the forecast period. The increasing need to minimize the administrative cost is one of the important factors that could drive the growth of the VMS market over the forecast period. Also, it is very important for the regulated companies to ensure that the third-party goods and services comply with applicable laws, regulations and best practices making VMS a necessity for such companies. However, the high implementation and maintenance cost is one such factor that could play a vital role in hindering the growth of the VMS market over the forecast period. Key Market TrendsRetail Sector is Expected to Hold the Largest Share The retail industry depends on many third-party vendors and suppliers for their inventory. This makes retailers prone to many risks. Therefore it becomes imperative for these retailers to look for the solutions that help them mitigate such risks. This is expected to boost the demand for the vendor management software market over the forecast period.Quantivate's supplier and vendor management for retail allow the retailers to identify potential supplier risks, verify that suppliers are compliant, and continue to monitor changes that can create new risks.The increasing trend in retail sales activities has made vendors to better serve not only their customers but has made maintaining healthy relationships with their suppliers equally important. A vendor management software alllows the vendor in satisfying both the parties thereby fueling the demand for the VMS over the forecast periodThe fluctuating market conditions and consumer trends are responsible for the varying Product pricing and promotion which makes it important for the retailers to adjust and adapt to such changes quickly. The VMS helps the retailers in achieving this need thereby boosting the growth of the market over the forecast period. North America to Enjoy the Highest share The region has a well-established distribution channel for all types of retail companies which makes it imperative for the vendors to effectively and efficiently manage the entire distribution channel and VMS provides a perfect solution to the question.The US retail industry is undergoing two significant transitions one being the technological and the other being the result of the changes in consumer behavior. This is expected to boost the demand for the VMS in the region over the forecast period.According to The U.S. Census Bureau, the retail trade sales were up 0.5 percent (0.5 percent)* from April 2019, and 3.1 percent (0.7 percent) as compared to 2018. This increase is expected to fuel the growth for the VMS in the region throughout the forecast period.With the banking and the financial institutions also relying on the third party vendors for many of its operations it becomes very important for these institutions to embrace a robust-third party vendor management program that helps them in assessing, measuring, monitoring, and controlling such risks.Some of the prominent players in the region are providing such software solutions that help these institutions mitigate or terminate such risks thereby boosting the market in the region.For instance, Ncontracts LLC's Nvendor enables financial institutions to achieve and maintain regulatory compliance with third-party vendor regulations and guidance. Competitive LandscapeThe competitive rivalry in the vendor management software market is high owing to the presence of some key players like IBM, SAP SE and many more. Their ability to continually innovate their offerings according to the needs and wants in the market has allowed these players to gain a competitive advantage over their competitors. Strategic partnerships, mergers, acquisitions and hefty investments in research and development activities have allowed the players in the market to gain a strong foothold in the market. October 2018 - IBM Corporation announced that the company has entered into a definitive agreement with Red Hat, the world's leading provider of open source cloud software, under which IBM would acquire Red HAT's all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Red Hat for $190.00 per share in cash, representing a total enterprise value of approximately $34 billion..

BARCELONA, Spain — The Spanish soccer federation has offered Seville as an alternative host city for the European Championship if UEFA rules out using Bilbao as planned. The federation confirmed local media reports to The Associated Press on Friday that it has put forward Seville’s La Cartuja Stadium as an alternative to Bilbao’s San Mamés. Last week, the federation announced that the current pandemic situation in Bilbao made it impossible for fans to be allowed into the matches based on the regulations established by health authorities in the northern Basque Country region. The federation told the AP that it would be up to regional authorities in southern Andalusia to decide whether fans could potentially be allowed into games in Seville. Currently, there are no fans allowed into league or national team matches anywhere in Spain. Other host cities for the tournament to be held around Europe between June 11 and July 11 have given assurances to UEFA that spectators will be allowed into stadiums. A UEFA decision on Bilbao is expected soon. Seville’s La Cartuja Stadium is a publicly owned stadium run by Andalusia’s regional government. The stadium, which has an athletic track around the field, can hold 60,000 fans. Seville’s topflight sides, Sevilla and Real Betis, each have their own stadiums in the same city. La Cartuja Stadium is set to host a second Copa del Rey final this month when Barcelona plays Athletic Bilbao on Saturday. It also hosted the delayed 2020 cup final two weeks ago, when Real Sociedad beat Athletic Bilbao. No fans have been allowed to attend either final. UEFA has used another stadium in Seville, Sevilla's Sánchez Pizjuán, as a replacement venue after the home team was eliminated from the Champions League. It hosted both legs of the Chelsea-Porto quarterfinals because of travel restrictions between England and Portugal. Bilbao’s San Mamés Stadium is scheduled to host Spain’s Group E games against Sweden, Poland and Slovakia as well as one round-of-16 game. The Basque Country region around Bilbao has been one of the hardest hit by the pandemic in Spain. On Thursday, the region reported 358 cases per 100,000 inhabitants over 14 days, compared to 225 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in Seville’s Andalusia region. Above 200 cases per 100,000 is considered high risk by authorities. ___ More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/hub/soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Joseph Wilson, The Associated Press

Brad Robinson is in a reflective mood as he stands in the shop his family opened in 1921. Today, it makes up one tiny part of the Lake of Bays superstore that is Robinson’s General Store in Dorset. “It’s been a great life,” he said. He recalled one recent morning when he woke up to a view of Lake of Bays that brought tears to his eyes. “I thought, ‘How did I get so lucky to look over this lake my whole life?’” he said. Now, his family’s journey with the general store is coming to an end. After 100 years in business, the Robinsons have sold the store to a young couple, Mike and Katie Hinbest, who are taking over May 1 with a promise to keep the store, and its traditions and spirit, alive. “We decided it’s time to move on,” Brad said. “I’m ready to retire.” Mike Hinbest has been working on the purchase of the general store since last summer. “It’s quite a big animal,” Hinbest said describing the process. The Hinbest family moved to Huntsville two years ago from Orangeville, where they owned a NAPA Auto Parts location. Hinbest was looking to purchase a “family-oriented” business in Muskoka. He came upon a listing for Robinson’s General Store online and decided to check out the store. “As soon as we walked through it for the first time, we knew this was the place for us,” Hinbest said. “I love that it’s this 100-year-old icon of family memories.” Hinbest said they plan to keep all of the same stores and products, including the grocery store, Red Onion boutique, Home Hardware and the dry goods gift shop. All of the current staff are staying and, just like in previous years, they plan to hire more workers for the traditionally busy summers. One big change is coming this summer: they plan to open an affogato café this June, outside, beside the Home Hardware garage. “Chatting with people around, it was a missed opportunity of what people were looking for,” Hinbest said: locals are looking for a place to get coffee and socialize, he said. In a century, Lake of Bays has transformed from a small stopover village for lumber workers into a major tourist spot known countrywide. Robinson’s General Store has undergone a similar transformation. Brad was 20 years old when he took over the store in the mid 1950s, at the time only 1,200 square feet. Today, it’s over 14,000 square feet. That major expansion was Harry Robinson's idea, Brad's father. Since 1921, they’ve made 14 additions to the general store. “My father said, ‘We will make the store so good that people will have to come,’” he said. Today, they can dock over 50 boats in their marina and hold 150 cars in their parking area. Brad ran the store for 37 years before his daughter, Joanne Robinson, and her husband Willie Hatton, took over in 1991. They’ve been in charge for the past 30 years. “It’s been a lot of work," Joanne said. "It becomes your whole life, and it’s hard to do anything outside of it." Hinbest said Brad offered him a significant piece of advice when they discussed his takeover: more than anything, it's important to be out and about in the store, getting to know the customers and the staff. It's that friendliness and sense of community camaraderie the Robinsons grew up with and which Hinbest said he hopes to maintain. “The people, the traditions and what we represent to the community is of the utmost importance to me,” he said. STORY BEHIND THE STORY With the Robinsons passing their family business to new hands, our reporter wanted to find out what’s going to change — and what will stay the same — about the ever-evolving general store.
