Mount Holyoke signs on for more spend management gains with ESM
College continues with ESM for three more years
Mount Holyoke College is extending its contract with ESM for three more years to continue using a solution that provides complete visibility and control of its spend.
The historic women’s college serves 2,200 students in South Hadley, Mass. The college signed on with ESM in 2013, and its Go Live upgrade was “flawless,” according to Mount Holyoke’s purchasing director.
“Our ‘Go Live’ was flawless, and it was all due to the project planning, weekly meetings, training sessions, gentle reminders and your management oversight of the entire project. In addition, you made it easy for me to remain on track with all of the tasks assigned to me and I enjoyed the ease with which you and I worked together throughout the project,” the director of purchasing wrote in a letter to ESM.
With ESM, Mount Holyoke can guide spend to its approved vendors and negotiated contracts inside an e-commerce shopping portal that is familiar to anybody who has shopped online. The flexible, easy-to-manage solution automates workflows and allows users to visualize their spend data through analytic dashboards and management reports.
Mount Holyoke is one of many smaller schools to deploy ESM’s affordably priced spend management solutions. At ESM, we’ve set prices to reflect the unique needs and tight budgets of these institutions.
“Mount Holyoke has done an incredible job steering spend to the right places with our spend management solutions,” ESM CEO Anthony Rotoli said. “We can’t wait to celebrate even more wins with them going forward.”
