ADVISORY, March 31, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
SciQuest, Inc. (SQI) will visit the NASDAQ MarketSite in New York City's Times Square.
SciQuest's technology simultaneously helps educational institutions and healthcare systems generate savings – called "spend savings" – from their operational spending. With SciQuest these organizations can shave up to five percent from their spending, which in many cases can total tens of millions of dollars.
April marks an annual financial shock for millions of U.S. consumers, when they must face the harsh reality of two of the fastest inflating cost centers in their personal budgets: healthcare and higher education.
To bring awareness to what it is doing to help reign in these costs, Stephen Wiehe, President and Chief Executive Officer of SciQuest, Inc. (SQI), will ring the NASDAQ Opening Bell.
