Scout RFP and Suplari Partner to Drive Visibility and Improve Collaboration for Procurement & Finance Teams

SAN FRANCISCO–([1])–Scout RFP[2], a Workday[3] company and leading cloud-based platform for strategic sourcing and supplier engagement, today announced a new integration with Suplari[4], the AI-driven analytics and insights platform for procurement. With this partnership, joint customers will have the ability to integrate Suplari’s spend visibility and analytics data with the Scout RFP platform.

“Data-driven decision making is critical to strategic sourcing success, particularly during challenging times,” said Stan Garber[5], co-founder, Scout RFP. “The Office of Finance needs real-time visibility across the enterprise to easily mitigate risk and reduce costs – that data is often found sprinkled across disparate departmental systems. We’re excited to integrate Suplari data into the Scout RFP platform to help Procurement teams identify, accelerate and execute on strategic sourcing opportunities.”

In December 2019, Scout RFP was acquired by Workday[6]. Strategic sourcing through Scout now coupled with the technology integration with Suplari will allow joint customers to combine sourcing, contract, vendor management and pipeline with industry-leading spend analytics and sourcing insights. Procurement teams will be able to analyze sourcing information from Scout against spend, contract and procurement data in Suplari to rapidly discover cost reduction and cash-flow opportunities.

Additional key benefits include:

• Proactive insights that drive strategy, cash-flow optimization, and savings tracking

• Increased productivity and enterprise-wide collaboration through combined analytics

• Automated spend visibility, analytics, and key performance indicator tracking

“The most effective procurement teams are using advanced analytics across spend, contracts, and purchasing data to identify new sourcing opportunities,” said Nikesh Parekh[7], CEO of Suplari. “The integration of the Suplari platform with Scout RFP automates category management and strategic sourcing. We are excited to provide this advanced strategic sourcing suite with AI-driven insights to our joint procurement customers.”

“Suplari and Scout RFP are two of the best and easiest-to-use software systems in Procurement,” said Joe Patchett[8], Director of Procurement, Gemological Institute of America[9] (GIA). “The integration of Suplari’s best-in-class analytics and insights with Scout RFP’s strategic sourcing tools aim to dramatically increase the productivity and effectiveness of strategic sourcing teams.”

On July 15, join product leaders from Scout RFP and Suplari, along with special guest speakers from GIA, on a webinar to find out how this new integration will drive business impact for procurement teams. Find more details here[10].
