“We felt like we were not a little fish in a big sea. Being a small school, sometimes with the larger companies, we’re not as important. But ESM said, ‘We’re going to take care of you and make this happen.’ And their support line has been great”.Wendy Bouchard
Small Schools can Save Big with Spend Management.
Easy to Deploy. Easy to Use. Easy on Your Budget.
When we talk to small higher education institutions, K-12 school districts and other organizations across the country, we hear some common reservations about eProcurement and automated spend management solutions.“It’s too hard to learn.”
“It’s too hard to learn.” (It’s actually really easy!)
“We can’t afford it.” (Yes you can!)
“We’re too small.” (See how you compare to some of our existing customers!)
Here’s the thing: Our customer ranks include dozens of small (and very happy) organizations. They took the leap, eschewing the old-fashioned pen-and-paper processes that have ruled procurement and spend management for so long, and moved forward with tools that streamline the entire procure-to-pay cycle.
Today, these small schools save thousands of dollars thanks to automated sourcing, procurement and contract management that pull together all of their spend management functions.
