SciQuest (NASDAQ: SQI), a leading provider of cloud-based business automation solutions for spend management, today announced that the University of Minnesota has gone live with SciQuest Spend Director Enterprise and Accounts Payable Director solutions. The University of Minnesota sought solutions to automate many of its spending processes while enabling electronic invoicing for every vendor in its marketplace. To achieve this goal, the University looked for best-in-class eProcurement software to be used by departments when making purchases from within the University, as well as with outside vendors. Several months ago, the University selected SciQuest as the vendor to meet these requirements, replacing purchasing tools that had been developed internally. “The University of Minnesota is dedicated to working smarter and reducing costs while continuing our tradition of excellence in education, so we have extremely high expectations and requirements for our eProcurement system,” said Timothy Bray, purchasing director at the University of Minnesota. “SciQuest met or exceeded those expectations and we are happy to be working with them to help save money and make the procurement function more efficient across the University.” “The University of Minnesota requested a new eProcurement system to standardize its purchasing process and allow for electronic payment to its vendors,” said John Fabris, vice president of higher education at SciQuest. “We are excited to be partnering with the University of Minnesota to automate its critical business processes and turn spending into a source of strategic savings.” About SciQuest With a reputation for deep domain knowledge, a solid customer-driven portfolio, and industry-leading customer satisfaction, SciQuest (NASDAQ: SQI) is the largest public provider of cloud-based business automation solutions for spend management that turn spending into savings.
