Florida State University (FSU), longtime client of SciQuest Inc., recently opted to upgrade its utilization of the latter company’s Source-to-Settle Suite, a complete procurement platform, along with sourcing and supply management elements, for greater efficiency.
“One of our main goals is to provide our end users with the most user friendly and efficient procurement experience possible,” Ian Robbins, FSU’s chief procurement officer, said. “With SciQuest’s suite of solutions, we will have greater visibility into the entire procurement process and have the ability to maximize our spend with our contracted suppliers.”
FSU first established a working relationship with Morrisville, North Carolina-based SciQuest in 2008. In late 2015, the university modified its agreement to consolidate operations via one platform, with the end goal of saving millions of dollars over the life of the contract. The suite includes spending, sourcing and supplying management, aiming for minimized risk, streamlined labor, and ultimately cost savings.
“After providing procurement solutions to Florida State University for eight years, it’s exciting to continue to serve as their provider of choice to achieve maximum savings and spend management,” SciQuest CEO Stephen Wiehe said. “With the latest implementation, the university is certain to see better compliance, improved workflow and enhanced understanding of its spend. We look forward to seeing how the organization grows.”
