As a result, researchers can remain focused on their work," said Stephen Wiehe, president and CEO of SciQuest. "With the capability to also accommodate services spend through outside vendors, SciQuest makes maverick spending a non-issue."
Array uses SciQuest's SelectSite(TM) and Requisition Manager solutions to help expedite the approval process of materials procurement, efficiently managing each approval and providing clear visibility into the progress of each request. SciQuest then integrates with Array's Oracle infrastructure to create purchase orders. In its most recent fiscal year, Array placed orders for more than 25,000 items and services through the SciQuest system. With SciQuest, Array has captured nearly 100 percent of the company's materials procurement through its procurement process.
