Education Service Agency to Transform its Purchasing Program With ESM Solutions

Share Article

Lancaster Lebanon Intermediate Unit 13 will utilize ESM Solutions’ new easyPurchase™ platform for an online marketplace.

We have had a great working partnership with the Intermediate Unit and look forward to a continued relationship with IU 13 as they expand their offerings.

ESM Solutions®, a leading provider of spend management and eProcurement solutions for the public sector, will power an online marketplace for Lancaster-Lebanon Intermediate Unit 13 (IU 13). The education service agency, IU 13, is a long-time partner and will be migrating to ESM Solutions’ new easyPurchase platform for its marketplace.

IU 13 delivers services to school districts and communities in the Lancaster-Lebanon area, as well as across the state of Pennsylvania, and is a leader in implementing programs to meet the needs of schools. As streamlined eProcurement solutions become necessary to help schools manage spend, IU 13 has announced that it will offer an eCommerce site for the school systems it services. ESM Solutions’ new version of the easyPurchase application will be utilized as the platform from which IU 13 will launch its initiative.

With the choice to update its software to ESM Solutions’ new easyPurchase, IU 13 intends this online marketplace to benefit the ongoing transformation of its collaborative purchasing program.

IU 13 currently utilizes easySourcing™ and the original easyPurchase applications. The organization initially chose ESM Solutions for the efficiencies created by its comprehensive procure-to-pay suite and for its flexible options and lower costs. After experiencing success with its current platforms, IU 13 expects to see further savings in both product and service acquisition costs once the new solution is fully implemented.

“Our new easyPurchase solution will benefit the Intermediate Unit both in launching the online marketplace and in the long term,” said Dan Corazzi, CEO of ESM Solutions, “We have had a great working partnership with the Intermediate Unit and look forward to a continued relationship with IU 13 as they expand their offerings.”
