INNOVATION: Scribe Online is the company’s cloud-based integration platform as a service (iPaaS). It leads the industry in bringing ease, speed, and flexibility to the process of uniting data across enterprise information systems. One of its main innovative features is a no-code, visual design environment, which enables people with less technical education or skill, such as business analysts, to create powerful integrations.
For example, manufacturers and retailers are using the company’s software to personalize the sales process for each customer and to update their sales teams and customers on the status of orders.
Sports teams are using the software to combine information from team websites, ticketing systems and customer databases to better market their teams and their merchandise to fans and potential customers.
LEADERSHIP: Shawn McGowan is chief executive officer; Peter Chase is founder and executive vice president.
WORKFACE: The privately held company employs more than 100 people, including 86 in New Hampshire. The company operates other offices in Oakland, Calif., and in the The Hague in the Netherlands.
HISTORY: Scribe was founded in 1995 to address a new problem for business at the time — how to integrate customer relationship management (CRM) applications and data into the rest of the enterprise. The company became the leading provider of CRM integration solutions and developed a reputation for making integrations that worked — fast to deploy, cost effective, real-time, custom and adaptable — for thousands of organizations. Scribe released its cloud-based integration platform, Scribe Online, in 2011.
COMMUNITY: Scribe has a longstanding relationship with New Hampshire High Tech Council, Alpha Loft and Stay Work Play New Hampshire.
TECHNOLOGY: Scribe’s integration platform makes application and data integration simpler, faster and more accessible for enterprises of all sizes. The platform’s visual design environment, lifecycle management tools, and other features allow both business analysts and developers to quickly create real-time data flows between their key business systems. Companies across all industries, including financial services, manufacturing, public sector, retail, utilities, higher education, life sciences, and media and entertainment use Scribe to accelerate their integration projects.
SPOTLIGHT: Scribe Software was named by Stay Work Play New Hampshire as a 2017 finalist in the category of New Hampshire’s “coolest companies for young professionals.” The category highlights companies that create outstanding environments to attract and retain young talent, those 40 and under. The winner will be announced Oct. 2.
The company counts more than 12,000 customers, representing all industries. Customers include Bank of America, Delta Dental, U.S. Department of Defense, IBM and the state of Colorado.
REBOUND RECRUIT: Rachel Comstock
Scribe Software controller Rachael Comstock, 33, who grew up in Merrimack and graduated from Bishop Guertin High School in Nashua in 2002, went to college in Massachusetts and then worked there before returning to the Granite State, where she is closer to family.
“There’s also that convenience factor of living in central or southern New Hampshire. I like to ski and snowboard. I also like beach life,” the Goffstown resident said. “To be an hour or two away from both of those items or to go to Manchester or go to Boston, which are not too far, to have that central location is pretty great for us.”
