Welcome to Scout! Scout RFP is a cloud-based procurement tool that many businesses use to streamline their procurement process.
Scout's goal is to make it as easy as possible for you to reply to your potential customers' RFXs, and to make sure you are able to get up and running quickly! Here is a five-step guide to help you get started.
Step 1: Get Invited
Open your invitation email.
Scout can be accessed by invitation only. Keep an eye out for an email invitation from either the Sourcing Manager on the Event, or one of your teammates who has already been invited:
Didn’t receive the email?
If you don’t receive your invitation email, check your spam folder! We also recommend asking your IT team to whitelist the following domain: amazonses.com.
Step 2: Sign Up for Scout
Use your Invitation Email to sign up for Scout.
Click the green "View this RFx" button in your Invitation Email to open the Scout Sign-Up page:

Click Next to get your Confirmation Email.
Step 3: Confirm Your Account
Use the Confirmation Email to finalize your account.
When you click Next on the Sign-Up page, a confirmation email will be sent to you. Click the green button to get started in Scout!
Step 4: Access the Event
Open the Event from your Scout homepage.
