The administration was looking for a procurement solution that was more cost effective and flexible than competing solutions.

“In today’s budgetary reality, many projects like this have almost no chance of getting off the ground because, with other vendors, the returns are always so far off in the future. By comparison, our customers typically see a positive return on the solution within just a few months,” said Anthony Rotoli, CEO of ESM. “Our solution is so easy, it is like shopping on any modern e-commerce site. And that means people are more likely to use it. Working closely with our customers, we deploy the solutions in a few weeks. And, we help them enable hundreds or thousands of users out of the gate.”

Affordable. Flexible.

ESM was selected for its affordability and flexibility. As the costs at other vendors have skyrocketed thanks to out-of-control pricing structures, ESM stays budget friendly with customers of all sizes, achieving a positive return in less than six months. The solution also is configurable. ESM is molded to its clients’ existing workflows, helping customers avoid major changes to its operations and management.

“Given SUNY Cortland’s requirements, along with our expertise and long-time focus on the higher education sector, we are certain that our solutions will help them drive savings across the spectrum,” Rotoli said
