BuyerQuest Broadens Higher Education Strategy with Ellucian Partnership

Published August 1, 2018 at 8:28 AM

BuyerQuest, a leader in cloud-based spend management software, announced today that it has become an Ellucian partner.  The new partnership allows BuyerQuest to combine their industry-leading Procure-to-Pay platform with Ellucian’s technology for higher education, providing a comprehensive solution to joint customers.  This partnership builds on BuyerQuest’s already successful strategy to streamline the Search - Buy - Pay process for higher education.

BuyerQuest and Ellucian share a common commitment to provide solutions that have a measurable impact for institutions of higher learning.  BuyerQuest’s Procure-to-Pay platform adds to Ellucian’s comprehensive ecosystem of technologies focused on streamlining the user experience for everyone from students to facilities and administrative staff at colleges and universities.

“BuyerQuest offers a unique value proposition to our higher education customers”, said Jack Mulloy, CEO of BuyerQuest. “Our industry-leading platform simplifies the purchasing process for educators and creates a collaborative environment for department-level purchases across a single requisition. This partnership expands on our commitment to help our higher-education customers increase user adoption, and by extension, on-contract spending for their institutions.”

The BuyerQuest platform offers unique capabilities that deliver quantifiable benefits to institutions of higher learning.

  • Budget Checks: For institutions struggling with tightening budgets, BuyerQuest helps ensure that spend is performed on-contract and on budget.
  • Ease of Use: Users are able to quickly learn to purchase without the need to access pages and pages of instructions or time-consuming calls to support lines, encouraging high levels of adoption, and cutting processing time of POs.
  • Collaborative Purchasing: Collaborative cart capabilities allow departments to work together on a single requisition, no matter what unit or shift, eliminating duplicate ordering and improving inter and cross-departmental communication.
  • Multiple PO Types: BuyerQuest supports purchase orders for goods, services, blanket orders, and other purchasing types that are common with higher-education.

“We are excited to welcome BuyerQuest into our partner community,” said Chris Westfall, vice president of business development at Ellucian, “This allows customer more choice with a solution specifically tailored to address spend management with a deeply experienced team.”
