University Business Recognizes SciQuest Customer As A “Model Of Efficiency”

SciQuest (NASDAQ: SQI), a leading provider of on-demand source-to-settle solutions, congratulates its customer The George Washington University on being recognized by University Business magazine’s Models of Efficiency. The program spotlights innovative approaches for streamlining higher education operations through technology or business process improvements. Models of Efficiency is sponsored by Higher One, a technology and payment services company serving higher education.

“Efficient business operations translate into better experiences for students and administrators alike, and the Models of Efficiency program encourages schools to prioritize service,” said Tim Goral, editor-in-chief of University Business. “The George Washington University stands out for developing a very effective solution to a challenging situation.”

The George Washington University implemented the SciQuest centralized purchasing platform, streamlining purchasing processes, enhancing the overall user experience and achieving greater visibility into spending. The system also enables the more efficient processing of purchasing orders. Currently, more than 90 percent of requisition orders can be completed within a day. Since all orders are now handled electronically, the university’s purchasing department has also drastically reduced its paper usage.

“The response to the purchasing platform has been overwhelmingly positive. We continue to see a rise in the number of users and are able to respond to requests and handle purchase orders more effectively,” said Joshua Van Nuys, eProcurement program manager, The George Washington University. “We were impressed with SciQuest’s ease of use and overall functionality. Our SciQuest deployment was essential to becoming a ‘model of efficiency.’”

“Our customers are true innovators, transforming the role of procurement and embracing a more strategic, holistic view of spending,” said Max Leisten, market director, SciQuest. “By centralizing and streamlining the purchasing process, The George Washington University has turned spending into a source of savings while delivering a premium experience for its staff. We congratulate the university on its selection as a Model of Efficiency.”
