Momentum of the ESM-Ellucian Partnership Continues to Build
April was a busy month at ESM! A major highlight for us was the Ellucian Live conference in New Orleans. With record crowds and a flurry of interest and activity about the ESM-Ellucian partnership, the enthusiastic crowds kept us hopping. If you were there, hopefully, you grabbed one of our commemorative t-shirts! 😉
Interest in the partnership and the power of the integrated solutions has been even stronger than we expected. With the influx of inquiries, we are working on a number of additional resources for our audiences in higher education. In fact, you can already register for a live demonstration of Ellucian Purchase, scheduled for June 6th!
Back to Ellucian Live: ESM presented three heavily-attended sessions to share strategies for incorporating Ellucian Purchase, powered by ESM, into users’ spend management processes. During the four-day conference, ESM presentations highlighted our strategic partnership with Ellucian, including the recent launch of Ellucian Purchase and ESM’s integration with Ethos, to help higher education institutions better track their spend. Presentation topics included:
- All About Integration: Ellucian Purchase Leverages Ethos – Attendees learned how ESM is using Ethos Integration and Ethos Data Model APIs to integrate with Banner and Colleague much faster and more cost-effectively to meet organization’s procurement and accounts payable needs.
- What’s New with Ellucian Purchase – We presented what’s new in Ellucian Purchase, powered by ESM, which provides a consumer shopping experience and the ability to request goods and services, create purchase orders and complete receiving documents that are delivered and integrated through the Ellucian Ethos Platform.
- Best Practices for Implementing Ellucian Purchase, powered by ESM – Attendees heard first-hand how the solution helps institutions achieve rapid deployment, rapid rollout, rapid adoption and rapid returns with ESM and Swarthmore College.
If you missed any of these sessions or would like to learn more, please contact us, or your Ellucian rep!
The success of Ellucian Live is the latest demonstration of the strength and importance of the ESM-Ellucian Partnership. Last year, ESM was the first eProcurement provider to connect with Ellucian Ethos, —to ensure data flows seamlessly between ESM and Ellucian’s Banner and Colleague ERP systems. For its work on Ethos, ESM won Ellucian’s 2018 Engagement Award.
