SciQuest Implementation Survey Results

To gauge whether SciQuest is meeting expectations and whether there are any remaining concerns that may impact user adoption of the solution, a survey was recently sent to approximately 200 business managers of which 57 responded.

Common themes from the responses:

• No “show stoppers” noted to deployment; majority find it quick and easy
• Management concerns regarding competing priorities with SciQuest
• Challenges persist implementing broad change in departments
