|Beck Anderson Research is a boutique technology and market research firm that aims to inspire finance practitioners to think differently about what is possible in the realms of payables, receivables, and working capital management. We specialize in creating research that makes complex topics accessible, helping to educate and inform rather than to confuse or alienate.
BAR’s research comes in two varieties: original works, which comment on recent news and emerging trends that have caught our attention; and commissioned pieces, which explore questions and challenges posed by solution and service providers in related markets. Both share the same commitment to full and honest investigation with value to the practitioner at the forefront. The only difference is in who posed the initial question.
|Scott’s research highlights practical, workable solutions that help to improve the efficiency and accuracy of financial processes — and the daily lives of those who manage them. From quote to cash and purchase to pay, he provides informed advice on process, policy, and technology choices. An industry thought-leader, his work has been published by and presented alongside the Americas’ SAP User Group (ASUG), CFO.com, the Institute of Finance and Management (IOFM), sharedserviceslink, SupplyChainBrain, The Paypers, and others.
Prior to founding BAR, Scott was a Principal Analyst with Blue Hill Research and held both product marketing and analyst roles with Aberdeen Group in Boston, MA. He began his career with a 3PL specializing in outsourced medical records storage, and handled coding/development and customer support for a SaaS-based data translation company aiding brick-and-mortar retailers in accessing online marketplaces.
Scott holds a BA from Clark University, an MBA from the Boston University Graduate School of Management, and a JD from Boston University School of Law, where he served on the Executive Board of the Annual Review of Banking and Financial Law.
