Single Shopping Destination
23 annual contracts covering nearly all purchases from office supplies to IT needs.
With ESM, we dropped the paper processes and automated purchasing with an intuitive, easy-to-use solution that my administrators love.
Total Purchase Order Value Processed
All of our purchase orders go through the solution so we have better visibility, better reporting, and a more informed position with our suppliers. By being integrated to Banner, all Purchase Orders are properly recorded against the general ledger.
“It’s seamless and essentially real-time in the way it communicates with ESM Purchase. Our finance and administrators love the transparency.”
