As 2019 comes to an end, we're excited to share some highlights from behind the scenes at Scanmarket.

Scanmarket started 2019 making headlines from the acquisition by Verdane Edda. The goal of the investment is to strengthen Scanmarket’s position as a best of breed solution within eSourcing and to build a leading international Source-2-Contract (S2C) software company that helps procurement professionals in achieving cost savings.

In May, we climbed the O2 Arena with our friends from Sievo and a bunch of our bravest customers at World Procurement Leaders in London . We hope to toast at the top with many more of you when repeating the success in 2020.

2019 has in many ways been an eventful year. We had the pleasure of engaging with many of you in multiple thought-provoking eSourcing discussions during our eSourcing Roundtable Networking events in Helsinki, Leeds and Copenhagen. In 2020 you will have a chance to participate when we visit Helsinki, London, Copenhagen, Dubai and a, yet to be determined, city in Central Europe. Learn more about upcoming Roundtable events.

In September we hosted our first US-based eSourcing exclusive Summit in Atlanta, GA. Speakers included current customers from Jabil, J.B.Poindexter and Giant Eagle. The event was kick-started with a visit to TopGolf on the evening before the Summit which was a great opportunity to network but also a chance to show off some swings.

The US eSourcing Exclusive Summit featured world's 'News' - the Scanmarket socks!  Scanmarket will be hosting two eSourcing exclusive summits annually, one in Europe and one in the United States.

At the same time, one of Scanmarkets founding fathers, Vagn, decided it was time to put work-life behind him and enjoy his retirement. Once again thank you for all of your hard work, you will be missed!

The past year, we have also had the pleasure of welcoming no less than 25 new colleagues to the Scanmarket family, we hosted a great webinar with Jason Busch of Spend Matters, and we moved in to our new building to fit the growing team. 

To get you ready for the new year, we have pulled together some of our most popular blogs from 2019 here:

  1. Supply Risk Management - Is your company ready? If you don't have answers to these 10 important questions about supply risk management, you have some work to do.
  2. eSourcing Upside Down: Events from the Suppliers' Perspective - Understanding your negotiation              counterparts' motivations, needs and unique perspective will lead to better project outcomes.
  3. Overcoming Challenges of the Procurement-Finance Relationship - Finance should be your best friend, not an adversary. 

Enjoy some well-earned rest and time with family and friends over the holidays. We wish you peace, joy and successful eSourcing targets. See you in early 2020 for an effective start to the New Year.
