Wor-Wic chooses SciQuest for the breadth and depth of its best-in-class eProcurement offerings

WASHINGTON--()--SciQuest Inc. (NASDAQ: SQI), a leading provider of cloud-based business automation solutions for spend management, today announced that the Wor-Wic Community College, a two-year college in Salisbury, Md. serving more than 11,000 students each year throughout Eastern Maryland, has selected SciQuest’s cloud-based suite of eProcurement solutions to help them automate and manage critical spending processes.

“We chose SciQuest to replace our previous eProcurement vendor, ESM Solutions, because of the depth and breadth of SciQuest’s best-in-class solutions – particularly in the eProcurement market,” said Allison Canada, Director of Purchasing and Auxiliary Services at Wor-Wic Community College. “Within this market, SciQuest is known as a company driven by the needs of their customers, and that’s important to us. We want advanced functionality and reporting that supports our mission – we want to partner with a company that we can consider a strategic advisor.”

Already highly regarded for its cost efficiency among Maryland two-year institutions, Wor-Wic Community college becomes the latest in a long line of institutions of higher learning that have chosen SciQuest’s eProcurement solutions to automate previously labor-intensive procurement processes in order to deliver significant cost savings and efficiencies. With SciQuest, Wor-Wic can now:

  • Deliver a seamless purchasing experience to every user, achieving greater cost savings to propel its mission;
  • Eliminate inefficiencies;
  • Increase on-contract spending; and
  • Elevate procurement from being a transactional function to being a strategic initiative.

“Wor-Wic Community College is an excellent addition to SciQuest’s growing Higher Education client roster, and we look forward to working with them for a long time,” said Blair Tolbard, Vice President of Higher Education, Healthcare and Public Sector at SciQuest. “SciQuest has a long and fruitful history working with institutions of higher learning, helping them centralize and manage spend, maintain compliance in an expanding and changing regulatory environment, and reduce overall spend to drive long-term cost savings.”
