CARY, N.C. -- SciQuest, Inc., (NASDAQ: SQI) a leading provider of on-demand strategic procurement and supplier management solutions, today announced the latest version of the SciQuest eProcurement solution. SciQuest provides organizations with enhanced buying power and more visibility and control over the entire purchasing process, including industry-leading features for collaborative procurement. The solution drives spend savings, increases on-contract purchasing and improves the efficiency of the buying process.

SciQuest provides higher education institutions, group purchasing organizations, states, multi-business unit enterprises and others with the collaborative procurement solutions required to enable efficient and cost-effective purchasing. With unique consortium solutions and other collaborative procurement solutions such as the pCard (purchasing card) Marketplace, organizations can capitalize on increased buying power to obtain the most cost-effective contracts and ensure spending compliance. In addition, the multi-business unit solution enables centralized spending control across enterprise or multi-location organizations.

Highlights of the latest version of SciQuest's eProcurement solution include:

* pCard Marketplace--Group purchasing organizations, states or other sourcing enterprises can open their library of contracts to their general membership for simple, Internet-based shopping in the SciQuest pCard Marketplace. Once approved, members can use their credit card to buy from the best group contracts, helping ensure compliance and the lowest total cost of goods purchased.

* Consortium--SciQuest enables groups of organizations to aggregate buying power in a virtual consortium environment that centralizes sourcing and catalog management processes. This drives deeper discounts and significantly improved insight into group-wide spending.

* Multi-Business Unit--The Multi-Business Unit solution supports multi-location organizations in consolidating their purchasing functions with centralized technology and purchasing control. SciQuest provides the flexibility to localize the operational purchasing environment for language, currency, regulations, suppliers, documents, reporting and much more.

SciQuest also delivers:

* Continued investments in healthcare-specific supply chain solutions, including SciQuest's Virtual Item Master, that enable healthcare organizations to manage contract compliance for physician preference items and purchased services.

* Enhanced catalog and price management capabilities for buying organizations and suppliers, ensuring that goods and their prices are up-to-date, relevant and accurate for shoppers.

By further enhancing how organizations manage and buy from suppliers and catalogs, SciQuest enables organizations in higher education, life sciences, healthcare and public sector markets, as well as other industries, to increase procurement savings and purchasing efficiency.

"In today's procurement landscape, collaboration is not an option but a requirement," said Max Leisten, market director for SciQuest. "SciQuest provides leading collaborative procurement solutions that leverage buying power across an organization, consortium or community, driving more efficient spending and significant cost savings. This latest release is a comprehensive, on-demand eProcurement solution that enables organizations to harness the power of group purchasing for improved contract compliance and total spend visibility."
