BERLIN & ATLANTA — October 17, 2022 — Scoutbee, the leading AI-powered supplier intelligence and discovery platform, today announced it has been recognized as one of Spend Matters’ “50 Providers to Watch” for 2022.
Each year, the “50 Providers to Watch” list recognizes fast-rising companies in the procurement and supply chain market. These are the up-and-coming solution providers that continue to grow and develop innovative products propelling the market forward.
The Spend Matters annual “50 Providers to Watch” list is determined by the entire Spend Matters analyst team to represent the best of the commercial providers that serve enterprise-level procurement organizations.
“We’re delighted to have made the cut for this highly anticipated list,” said Scoutbee Co-founder and CEO Gregor Stühler. “Being featured in “50 to Watch” confirms the innovative power of our solutions and speaks volumes about the impact we’ve created for our customers. From the pandemic, to the trade war between the U.S. and China, to the war in Ukraine, the role of procurement is changing and has never been so strategic. But procurement leaders need to stay agile and leverage strategic insights while working within a changing data environment which is where our solutions have been adding a lot of value.”
Stühler went on:
“We’re proud that procurement leaders see us as a strategic investment in the future. With supplier data serving as the foundation of our solution, we look forward to being a flexible partner in accelerating our customers’ sustainability, risk, and diversity goals.”
Nick Heinzmann, VP of Research at Spend Matters, added:
“Enriched, valid supplier data is the digital gold of the 2020s. Scoutbee is a vendor worth watching because it applies this invaluable dataset, combined with strong manufacturing experience, both to accelerating supplier discovery and tendering, and to creating a stronger supplier data foundation, including for risk and ESG criteria.”
Scoutbee Co-founder and CEO Gregor Stühler, and Roger D. Blumberg, Senior Vice President of Global Marketing, will receive the Spend Matters recognition in person today during the SIG Global Executive Summit (Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa, Rancho Mirage, CA). This coming Wednesday, October 19th (15:40 – 16:40 – PT | Room: Fiesta 6), Gregor will also lead a roundtable on how to identify and mitigate risks in your supply chain.
