“We are honored to be recognized for the Supply and Demand Chain Executive 100,” said Mark Smith, COO at ESM Solutions. “The Ivy Tech project was a huge accomplishment; within six months, we delivered a fully functional suite of sourcing, procurement and contract management applications.”
The implementation included converting and replicating more than 5,000 workflows, training more than 2,100 users, enabling 14 preferred supplier catalogs and more than 12,000 non-catalog suppliers and real-time integrating to Ivy Tech’s Banner ERP system.
More than 200 projects were submitted and evaluated primarily based on ambitiousness and scope of the project, creative application of technologies, services and solutions used and extent of the business results.
