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

Warrington, PA (PRWEB) July 31, 2014 - 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.”

ESM Solutions’ enhanced approval routing capabilities have transformed purchasing processes for easyPurchase system users.

Warrington, PA (PRWEB) April 15, 2014 - ESM Solutions®, a leading provider of cloud-based spend management and eProcurement solutions, has released its Dynamic Matrix Workflow functionality to enhance approval routing for its customers. Dynamic Matrix Workflow is a robust, multi-dimensional approval workflow system that scans each requisition against parameters, chosen by the customer, to construct unique workflows for each order.

“Our new, state of the art Dynamic Matrix Workflow technology is extremely intuitive to set-up and remains transparent to end-users,” said Mark Smith, Product Architect and Chief Operating Officer at ESM Solutions. “The workflow engine calculates, sequences and assembles all workflow or approval criteria on an order by order basis.”

The approval workflows are generated from a set of criteria, defined by system administrators and based on more than 35 applicable transaction variables within an order. Typical criteria used by pilot customers include account or commodity code, transaction total, order or payment type, user name, ship-to or bill-to locations and need by date. The Workflow Priority feature, used to determine the sequence of required workflow approvals, assembles and presents the unique workflow to the end-user.

The process begins once the end-user submits a transaction for approval; each transaction uses the dynamically calculated approval workflow based on the information for that order.

“An agile approval routing system was essential for our end-users and approvers to effectively process transactions within our purchasing application,” said Andy Williams, eProcurement Systems Administrator at Ivy Tech Community College. “The Matrix Workflow has routing capabilities that we did not have with previous systems, and it allows us more flexibility in shaping our future processes and policies.”

The responsiveness of the Dynamic Matrix Workflow functionality adds visibility, compliance and ease to the approval process. Approvers receive instant email notifications to approve a transaction, while end-users have the ability to view their workflow progress at anytime, including who the approvers are and where the order approval may be held up.
