Tropic makes buying and managing SaaS ridiculously easy. The world runs on software, which is why companies of all sizes—from startups to Fortune 500s—use Tropic to buy software, manage contracts, and guarantee savings. Tropic is procurement paradise.

With most companies focused on managing costs in the year ahead, we asked top finance and procurement executives how they're thinking about their tech stacks and SaaS buying in 2023. 

Tropic CEO David Campbell and former Global Head of Procurement at Qualtrics Michael Shields join Procurement Foundry's Michael Cadieux to share the results of those conversations and a slew of first-hand guidance from business leaders at Posh, QuotaPath, McKinsey, Zoomin and more.

David Campbell

10 years ago, if you told me I’d become a startup CEO, I wouldn’t have believed you. I have a degree in English Literature. I wrote a 400-page novel and never published it. I've been accused of being an "alt CEO." These days, all of that feels like an advantage as our team at Tropic builds the future of software procurement.

Long before Tropic became real, my co-founder Justin and I discovered something the hard way: The whole world runs on software, yet everyone struggles to buy it. So we set out to fix that. Today, companies of all sizes—from startups to Fortune 500s—use Tropic to buy software, manage contracts, monitor usage and turn procurement into a competitive advantage.
