Intelligent procurement
puts relationships first

Transforming how
education does business

Advancing your institution’s goals takes more than smart spending. Because in education, procurement isn’t just about transactions—it’s about connecting people with the resources they need to power learning.

It isn’t about adding another supplier to your network—it’s about cultivating the ones who can deliver real value to your education community—today and over the long term.

And it’s not just about automating source to-pay—it’s about adding the insight you need at every point in the process to drive innovation and support institutional goals.

At ESM, we believe intelligent procurement that puts relationships first can create lasting value for you, your suppliers, and your education community.
