Stan Garber, Alex Yakubovich and Greg Tennyson can see the future. In this episode we discuss technology's role in procurement and negotiations, where we are, where we're going, how do we get there. Stan and Alex started Scout, which is an intuitive Cloud based platform which encompasses everything from project intake through sourcing pipeline to contract and supplier management, RFX, and reverse auction tools. This conversation blew my mind.
