University Business names ESM's easyPurchase 'top product'

ESM’s easyPurchase, an intuitive online ordering application that streamlines procurement activities, is among University Business magazine’s “Reader’s Choice Top Products” for 2015.

Higher education leaders from across the country nominated products that make a positive difference on college campuses. The winners were compiled from hundreds of nominations from the magazine’s readers in the past year. The Readers’ Choice Top Products has been announced online and in the January 2016 issue of University Business.

“It was inspiring to learn about the products being used in today’s colleges and universities that are helping students succeed,” says JD Solomon, the University Business editorial director. “All of our 2015 honorees should be very proud of their success.”

The University Business Readers’ Choice Top Products award program informs higher ed leaders about products their colleagues around the country are using to help their campuses excel in areas such as technology, sustainability and academic instruction.

ESM’s easyPurchase helps campuses better manage spend, control costs and improve compliance with a faster eProcurement solution. easyPurchase easily integrates with an organization’s ERP and financial system of record, offering a seamless approach to the procure-to-pay process.

Ivy Tech Community College, Indiana’s largest public college system with more than 200,000 students, implemented easyPurchase in less than six months. Today, 95 percent of the system’s $175 million in spend is running through easyPurchase. The system also enjoys a 40 percent reduction in office spend, among other enhancements.

Ivy Tech is one of many higher education systems that have signed on to use easyPurchase and other pieces of ESM’s procurement and spend management solutions suite. Multiple campuses in the California State University system and the Wisconsin Technical College System are recent easyPurchase converts.

“We’ve been honored to help out so many large institutions get a better handle on their spend through easyPurchase and our other solutions, “ said Anthony Rotoli, ESM’s Co-CEO for revenue. “I’m thrilled that University Business has recognized easyPurchase’s role in those efforts.”
