Annapolis, MD, March 13, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Unimarket is proud to announce that they have become a member of the Collaborative, a formal network of Datatel+SGHE partner companies with extensive higher education domain expertise. This new membership allows colleges and universities using Banner, Colleague, and PowerCAMPUS to more easily take advantage of Unimarket’s solutions for eSourcing, eProcurement, and eInvoicing. Unimarket’s solutions are already in use at a number of Datatel+SGHE customer campuses, delivering both cost savings and increased efficiencies at a time when there is much national focus on making colleges and universities more productive and less costly.
The Collaborative is comprised of product and service providers that furnish proven software applications, hardware, and services that complement and extend an institution’s digital campus. For more information, visit the Collaborative website at: www.sungardhe.com/partners.
Unimarket is a global company founded in 2003 and now has customers across several sectors including education, government and healthcare. Unimarket brings a dedicated focus to the higher education sector whose traditional procure-to-pay operations are often decentralized and fragmented due to the nature of how purchasing decisions are made on most campuses. By leveraging the cost-efficient power of the “cloud” and by maintaining a network of preferred suppliers that can be easily accessed and transacted against by each campus requisitioner according to their campus purchasing policies, these colleges and universities achieve the potential to manage their expenditures more effectively and efficiently.
“We look forward to attending our first Summit user conference in late March,” said Scott Blackwood, CEO of Unimarket, “where more Datatel+SGHE customers can become acquainted with how our solutions are already benefiting other customers attending this event.”
The Summit 2012 user conference is from March 25-28 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
