Overall Satisfaction with SciQuest

SciQuest is used across the organization for decentralized purchasing. Some of the workflow as its built in SciQuest presents problems with operating with our current approval policy within the organization.
  • The workflow works great for routing requisitions to the appropriate approvers. It's also very customizable to adapt workflow to fit our current policies.
  • SciQuest pushes requisitions straight into our ERP, eliminating the need for duplicate data entry.
  • Punchouts are a great time saver for our end users to compare pricing within the same system.
  • Bypassing workflow approvals removes the original approver from the viewing access. Sometimes we need to bypass approval while the approver is out of the office, and then they lose visibility into the history of the order.
  • SciQuest has allowed us to push more spend to our PCard program, resulting in higher rebates.
  • SciQuest has given the purchasing office more visibility into our ordering process, helping us prepare for year end expenditures that we might not have known about previously.
SciQuest takes the guesswork out of when an approval is needed, and how to get the requisition to the appropriate approver. The requisitioner also has visibility into the progress their order is making through its approvals.
