As the year 2019 comes to an end, we thought we'd share some of this years' highlights with you.

2019 started out with Scanmarket making headlines with the acquisition of the company by Verdane Edda. The goal of the investment is strengthening Scanmarket's position as a best of breed solution within eSourcing.

You can revisit the press release from January 17th.

In May, at World Procurement Leaders in London, we climbed the O2 Arena with our friends from Sievo, and a bunch of our bravest customers. 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.

In September we hosted our first US-based eSourcing Exclusive Summit in Atlanta, GA. Customer speakers included Jabil, J.B.Poindexter & 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 to show off some swings...

The US eSourcing Exclusive Summit also featured world's 'News' - the Scanmarket socks!       socks3         

20yearsIn 2019, Scanmarket celebrated another important milestone with our 20th anniversary. This sensation was celebrated as Danes do best, with flags, bubbles and CAKE!

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: 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 your suppliers' perspective. Understanding your negotiation                          counterparts' motivations, needs and unique perspective will lead to better project outcomes.
  3. The challenges of the Procurement-Finance relationship. Finance should be your best friend, not an                       adversary. Here's how.

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.
