Key Findings & Highlights

The name TAPFIN was maintained to reflect the nature of its business which is primarily vendor neutral.
In 2014, TAPFIN managed ~4k suppliers under management, its network of suppliers spanning ~90 countries. It currently has engagements across 49 countries, is providing services to ~59 countries, and has the capability to offer services to ~80 countries.
