The advantages of ESM Solutions being SaaS-based:
Benefits of SaaS-based, often referred to as cloud-based, solutions over site-based applications:
easySourcing™ and easyPurchase™ have always been and will continue to be SaaS-based solutions, providing a complete eProcurement solution at reasonable subscription prices, resulting in bigger savings and a rapid ROI.
ESM Solutions’ products are delivered using Software as a Service (SaaS) technology, so all you need to streamline your procurement process is Internet access. The whole process – from catalog-based requisitioning and purchasing to sealed bid management and award - is done electronically, saving you time and money. ESM Solutions’ products are designed specifically for easy adoption, so regardless of the solution we create you can be up and running in no time.
Organizations across the country are implementing ESM Solutions to help reduce operational costs, support declining budgets, cope with reduced administrative staff and increase accountability requirements.
ESM Solutions’ Rapid Deployment model provides focused delivery of your specific solution tailored to meet customer expectations, and has you realizing savings within days or weeks after going live.
Our SaaS-based solutions require zero hardware or software installation costs, and there are no separate annual maintenance costs to your system. ESM Solutions provides annual feature and functionality updates as a part of the affordable annual subscription cost.
Our customers save time simply because the bidding process, with electronic bids and submissions, isn’t slowed down by paper. Sourcing events are also shortened from weeks to days, or even hours if a previous bid can be copied. Since analysis is done completely online with visual comparisons, reports and data analysis, it takes even less time to award a bid. There’s less time spent on data entry and emcumbrance with easyPurchase since these tasks are completed automatically with our Financial Integration System.
With ESM Solutions' ERP/GL Financial System Integration, our easyPurchase customers can create, modify and manage their procurement activities, while simultaneously sending real-time transaction data to their pre-existing financial software. Purchase order data is transmitted directly to the financial system where a purchase order is assigned, which means virtually no manual data entry. Security and existing business rules are maintained through the financial application, including areas such as account code validation, budget checking and final purchase order processing. ESM Solutions provides purchasing reports in addition to the reports which already exist within the financial application to support the entire process.
