Analysts from the leader in procurement industry insights name Scout RFP as a sourcing solution that is setting the industry standard.

San Francisco — May 7, 2018 — Scout RFP, the fastest growing cloud-based sourcing platform, has been named a 2018 Provider to Know by Spend Matters. The 5th annual 50 Providers to Know list, which Spend Matters released today in conjunction with the annual ISM conference, highlights firms that continue to lead the charge for new procurement technologies and services, driving innovation and changing the way we do business.

The award joins a growing list of recognitions for Scout, which was named a 2017 Gartner Cool Vendor. Scout’s collaborative, cloud-based sourcing platform closes the loop on sourcing, allowing companies to streamline supplier selection, centralize data, manage vendor contracts, and make more informed purchasing decisions, faster.

This marks the first year Scout has been recognized as a Provider to Know by Spend Matters. In 2016 and 2017, the company was recognized as a Provider to Watch.

“We are honored to be named a 2018 Provider to Know by Spend Matters,” said Alex Yakubovich, CEO of Scout. “Our philosophy is to start simple, and then work with our customers to enhance, improve, and expand Scout to help them meet their goals and elevate their role within the enterprise. Since we were first named a Provider to Watch in 2016, our momentum has propelled us towards a full-suite sourcing platform — while keeping the focus firmly on delighting the customers, suppliers, and stakeholders who use it. We’re excited to be part of this list, and I’m looking forward to seeing how we can work with the other winners to transform this industry.”
