Gain a holistic view of institutional spend

Understand non-payroll spend across your institution without resorting to lengthy reports or complicated spreadsheets. Easily synchronize purchasing data with your finance system for more control and better insight.

Deliver a more convenient shopping experience

A single marketplace lets buyers search for items across catalogs and categories to purchase from preferred suppliers and against the contracts you’ve put into place. Automated workflows guide shoppers from purchase to approval and receipt.

Influence buyer behavior more intelligently

Prioritize suppliers to simplify the buying experience and improve compliance, helping you allocate spend more efficiently. Promote diversity suppliers, champion sustainability, support local businesses, or encourage cost savings—the choice is yours.

Support stakeholders in your procurement community

With a unified purchasing ecosystem, purchasing staff can see what suppliers are being used, what orders are being approved, and what transactions are being processed for better real-time control. Role-based workflows and automated approval routing help buyers, approvers, and receivers work more intelligently to manage compliance.
