Ellucian Colleague and Unimarket

Our best-in-class solution forms a single end-to-end integration with Colleague.

A purpose-built eProcurement solution is one of the most effective ways to deliver process efficiencies and cost savings. But which is the right solution for your institution and its Ellucian Colleague ERP?

It’s crucial that your chosen solution integrates tightly with your ERP and provides outstanding value for money. It’s also vital to find an experienced procurement partner that truly understands your needs and is committed to delivering the best outcome for you.

For these reasons and more, many institutions using the Ellucian Colleague ERP turn to Unimarket.

Unimarket has been an Ellucian partner for over a decade. More than 75% of our clients use an Ellucian ERP, and over half of all higher education institutions that have implemented the Unimarket solution over the past two years are running Colleague.

Institutions using Colleague choose Unimarket because of its unsurpassed compatibility: only Unimarket offers a single end-to-end integration that spans procurement, invoicing, and payments.

The result is a familiar and intuitive shopping experience end users will love and the visibility and control you need to boost efficiency and cost savings. Plus, a close integration means Colleague remains your system of record at all times.
