ESM Solutions, the leading provider of spend management and eProcurement solutions for the public sector, announced an agreement with Hawai‘i Pacific University to provide them with seamless purchasing and contract management processes. Hawai‘i Pacific University is the state’s leading private university and one of the most culturally diverse universities in the country, with 7,500 students from more than 80 countries.

“We chose ESM Solutions as Hawai‘i Pacific’s eProcurement provider because they understand how higher education purchasing works,” said Sharon Blanton, Vice President and CIO of Hawai‘i Pacific University. “The ease of doing business with them coupled with their affordable solutions will make the transition to their electronic purchasing system smooth and easy.”

ESM Solutions’ purchasing application will give an unlimited number of end-users access to online ordering from contracted catalogs in an image-rich interface with user-friendly, self-guided navigation. The intuitive SaaS application will leverage purchasing and streamline Hawai‘i Pacific’s procure-to-pay process.

In addition to controlling spend, HPU will control and manage supplier contracts in the cloud using ESM Solutions’ Contract Management application. Contract Management will make it easy and efficient to draft, store, sort and search contracts, as well as track key dates and deadlines for renewals and approvals.

“We are excited to rollout our procure-to-pay solution for Hawai‘i Pacific,” said Anthony Rotoli, Vice President Sales at ESM Solutions. “Our value-based purchasing and contract management solutions will save university administrators time and money, and allow them to manage contract information, catalogs and purchases in an intuitive user interface.”

Hawai‘i Pacific University adds to ESM Solutions’ continuously growing list of higher education customers nationwide.
