BERLIN & ATLANTA — November 30, 2022 — Scoutbee, the leading AI-powered supplier intelligence and discovery platform, today announced it has been named a 2022 ProcureTech100 company – in the Analytics, Data & Intelligence Pioneers category – joining a select group of groundbreaking digital procurement solution providers.
Then, in partnership with 70+ procurement leaders, technology experts and B2B investors, they have chosen Scoutbee from these solutions, recognizing the company as one of the most forward-thinking, data-driven, and future-focused solutions that are writing the next chapter in procurement.
“Scoutbee powers procurement and supply chain teams across dozens of sectors – and the overall digital procurement ecosystem – to deploy innovation and ESG strategies that deliver noteworthy impact, at speed and scale, when it’s needed the most. Our team couldn’t be prouder and we’re honored to be listed in the ProcureTech100,” said Gregor Stühler, Co-founder and CEO at Scoutbee.
“This recognition speaks volumes about our commitment to guiding organizations in automating their procurement processes and placing innovation, supplier diversity, and ESG goals at the forefront of their daily operations,” Gregor continued.
Innovation on the horizon
Over the last few years, companies have struggled to overcome several obstacles to success. For instance, procurement teams rely on mostly fragmented and unactionable data, which inhibits data-driven decision making.
Suppliers also use fragmented systems to present their capabilities to buyers, which can undersell the value that suppliers can deliver. Scoutbee continues to support procurement teams as they face these challenges heading into 2023.
Scoutbee enables procurement teams to make strategic and proactive sourcing decisions that strengthen supply chain resilience, advance supplier diversity and ESG strategies, drive innovation, and reduce time to market.
Our data foundation acts as a cognitive layer in companies’ procurement software landscape, connecting teams to any data point – internal, external, third-party, and more – and data combination necessary to optimize the supply chain and make the right supplier decisions for their business.
The 2022 ProcureTech100 is a breath of fresh air and encourages companies to keep moving the needle forward.
“The ProcureTech100 helps the procurement industry to identify the latest and greatest technology, data, and analytics solutions that will transform the procurement function, create short-term benefits, and enable long-term value in the supply chain.” – Dr. Elouise Epstein, Partner, Kearney.
