Earlier this afternoon I received the following letter from SciQuest’s lawyers regarding my coverage of the company.
I will let you read the letter first, and then share with you my response.
Here was my reply:
Thank you for your letter dated August 13th, 2015.
I will be equally succinct; I stand by my research and what I have written.
That said, if SciQuest is willing to provide proof that anything I have written is inaccurate or, requires further clarification, I would be more than happy to openly share it with my readers. In fact I would invite you to have your client write a rebuttal letter detailing why my coverage has been as you put it “untrue and misleading.” I will then publish it as is and without edit.
At the end of the day, the whole focus of this blog is to find the truth.
If I have missed the mark in any way, or have failed to provide a complete or accurate report to the best of my ability and knowledge and, it can be clearly demonstrated with tangible proof, then I have no problem in admitting so. This is why I have, as before, offered to provide SciQuest with access to this venue to state their case, and let you the reader decide.
In this context, I will also let you reach your own conclusions as to why SciQuest has resorted to the measures they have in terms of a threat of legal action.
