Share Article

Ivy Tech Community College of Indiana selects ESM Solutions to replace its current purchasing process with a more efficient, cost-effective procure-to-pay solution.

Our SaaS-based sourcing, purchasing and contract management solutions will allow the Ivy Tech administrators and end-users to better manage contracts, bids, awards and orders all from one platform.

ESM Solutions®, a leading provider of spend management and eProcurement solutions for the public sector, announced an agreement with Ivy Tech Community College, the nation's largest state-wide community college with single accreditation. The community college system will deploy ESM Solutions’ sourcing, purchasing and contract management solutions to thirty one campuses across fourteen regions of Indiana.

Ivy Tech serves nearly 200,000 students a year and provides educational, professional, technical and training programs throughout Indiana. To better serve its community of administrators and staff, the college has converted from its existing eProcurement provider to ESM Solutions’ full suite of spend management products including sourcing, purchasing and contract management.

“We needed an affordable eProcurement system with tailorable functionalities and configurations to successfully implement a complete procure-to-pay process according to our business rules,” said Mark Husk, Chief Accounting Operations Officer at Ivy Tech Community College. “ESM Solutions provided us with a cost-effective suite of tools with end to end integration with our Banner financial system.”

The community college system will integrate easyPurchase™ with its financial system, Banner by Ellucian. The seamless connection between ESM Solutions’ purchasing application and Ivy Tech’s ERP software will provide spend data visibility and secure budget and purchasing transactions in a single interface. The application’s ease-of-use will make encumbrance, approval and payment quick and easy for the end-user and administrator.

ESM Solutions’ Rapid Deployment methodology will provide focused execution and delivery of the all-inclusive solution, and will have Ivy Tech up and running, and realizing savings quickly and efficiently.

“We look forward to replacing Ivy Tech’s procure-to-pay solution across Indiana,” said Dan Corazzi, CEO of ESM Solutions. “Our SaaS-based sourcing, purchasing and contract management solutions will allow the Ivy Tech administrators and end-users to better manage contracts, bids, awards and orders all from one platform.”
