San Francisco, CA, November 19th, 2018 – Scout RFP, the sourcing and supplier engagement platform, today announced they were named a 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Strategic Sourcing Application Suites. Gartner Peer Insights is an online platform of ratings and reviews of IT software and services written and read by IT professionals and technology decision-makers. As a customer-obsessed company, Scout is proud to receive this recognition from its customers, and believes the distinctions as a Customers’ Choice is a testament to the company’s focus on high adoption, rapid time-to-value, and overall customer success.

“We couldn’t be more proud to be named a 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Strategic Sourcing Application Suites,” said Stan Garber, President and Co-Founder of Scout. “Scout is a customer-obsessed company, and to us, gaining this recognition from our customers is a real testament to Scout’s efforts to make each of our customers crazy successful.

Gartner defines Strategic Sourcing Application Suites as technology platforms that support upstream procurement activities – the strategic work of planning, supplier assessment, and overall sourcing performance management. These critical platforms help enterprises drive cost savings, improve operational efficiency, and supply chain innovation. Scout stands out in this market and was recognized for their best-in-class user experience, customer support, and high adoption.

Building on the momentum from this Customers’ Choice recognition, Scout is releasing new research based on their work with leading companies in life sciences, financial services, technology, transportation, and manufacturing.
