Our mission

Connecting the world’s procurement and supply chain to any data point needed to drive sustainable, cost-efficient and innovative decisions. Better Data. Better Decisions. Better World.

Scoutbee at a glance

A global company with employees from 20+ countries, Scoutbee drives better business outcomes by giving companies the actionable insights they need to perfect their supply base and advance strategic initiatives, such as risk management, ESG, and innovation.

The AI-powered Scoutbee Intelligence Platform (SIP) uses graph technology and predictive and prescriptive analytics to deliver holistic supplier visibility that helps procurement make confident supplier decisions, drive cross-functional efficiency, and optimize their existing technology investments.

Scoutbee’s AI-driven data foundation connects teams to any data point – internal, external, third-party, and more – and any data combination necessary to orchestrate a resilient, competitive, and sustainable supply base.

Scoutbee places a strong emphasis on data protection and has taken extensive measures to reinforce our compliance and security certifications, such as ISO 27001, TISAX, and other relevant standards, as part of our ongoing commitment to ensuring the utmost security and privacy for our users.

Our story

In light of the global events that disrupted supply chains in the past decade, Scoutbee was founded in 2015 on the idea of improving supply chain resilience by using artificial intelligence and big data to transform the way organizations use supplier data to discover and connect with suppliers.

Driven by our Co-founder and CEO Gregor Stühler’s motto of creating products that can truly change the world, over the past eight years, our team has propelled Scoutbee to the forefront of the strategic sourcing market, and has grown Scoutbee’s customer base to include Audi, Heidelberg, Siemens, Unilever, and many others. 

Our passion for and commitment to tech-enabled procurement has generated dozens of awards, including the Unilever “Partner with Purpose” award - an important recognition of how Scoutbee is adding value to Unilever’s commitment to growing its business in a sustainable manner - as well as the World Procurement Awards 2023 shortlist (Procurement Technology Provider category). 

We have also accumulated many industry recognitions, some of which are listed below. 

Scoutbee announces that Scoutbee Discovery is now an SAP Endorsed App, available for online purchase on SAP® Store.
