SciQuest, Inc., (NASDAQ: SQI) a leading provider of on-demand source-to-settle solutions, today announced that it has been selected to the 2012 Supply & Demand Chain Executive (SDCE) 100 – “100 Great Supply Projects.” This year’s awards highlighted supply chain transformation projects that had a significant impact on the companies going through the implementations.
SciQuest was recognized for its work with Utah State University, a leading public research university located in Logan, Utah. The university wanted to create a more user-friendly purchasing system enabling staff and personnel to review products and catalogs online, submit orders electronically and track purchases. SciQuest became an integral part of Utah State’s eProcurement platform – USU EZ-Buy. Since implementing SciQuest, Utah State has increased overall efficiency, streamlined purchasing and gained deeper insights into spending.
“We’re honored to be recognized for our work with Utah State University,” said Max Leisten, market director, SciQuest. “By embracing eProcurement, Utah State University staff is able to provide a more strategic role, sharing critical insights on increasing savings, identifying new suppliers and increasing efficiencies. Institutions like Utah State are transforming the role of procurement, turning spending into a source of savings.”
Launched 11 years ago, Supply & Demand Chain Executive announced its first “100” list of supply chain solution providers, consultants and other organizations that were helping lead the way in transforming companies’ supply and demand chains. For this year’s awards, SDCE collected information on supply chain transformation projects, including background on the objectives, scope, timeline and results of the project. The submissions were evaluated by the magazine’s editorial staff primarily based on: ambitiousness/scope of project; creative application of technologies/solutions/services used; extent of the business results/impact; and clarity of submissions.“Our goal with this year’s ‘100’ is to put the spotlight on successful and innovative transformation projects that are delivering bottom-line value to small, medium and large enterprises across the different functions that comprise the supply chain,” said Barry Hochfelder, editor, Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “The projects featured in the ‘100’ article can serve as a roadmap for supply chain executives looking for new opportunities to drive improvement in their own operations.” Extended coverage of the SDCE 100 will appear in the June 2012 issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive.
