About the Customer
Tulane University is consistently ranked among the top 50 universities in the nation. With research and educational partnerships that span the globe and its location in historic New Orleans, Tulane offers undergraduate, graduate and professional degrees in the liberal arts, science and engineering, architecture, business, law, social work, medicine and public health and tropical medicine.
Scope and Challenges
"We closely examined all aspects of our operating processes to identify ways the university could reduce budget gaps without impacting the educational standards we have set over the years, and our procurement process quickly stood out as an area that could be transformed. It became clear that SciQuest would be able to efficiently address our needs and integrate with our existing systems,” said Douglas Harrell, vice president for finance and controller.
Outcome and Implications
Becoming a customer at the end of 2015, Tulane University is deploying two of SciQuest’s source-to-settle solutions, including:
“Tulane University faces many of the same challenges that businesses in other sectors are encountering — the need to streamline its procurement process. Procurement offers an opportunity for all organizations to wisely and effectively manage to spend. With the implementation of our solutions, Tulane will be able to automate and streamline procurement immediately, which will lead to long-term savings, ” said Stephen Wiehe, president, and CEO of SciQuest.
