New Mexico Military Institute selects Unimarket
New Mexico Military Institute (NMMI), a state-supported military junior college, and Unimarket, an innovator in spend management solutions for higher education, have signed an agreement to implement full eProcurement and eInvoicing automation with integration to NMMI’s Microsoft Dynamics Great Plains finance system.
NMMI conducted a thorough search and selection process evaluating the features and benefits of the leading eProcurement providers and chose Unimarket as the one provider that met all of their comprehensive requirements, including functionality, flexibility and cost.
COL Judy Scharmer, Chief Financial Officer at NMMI, said, “One of NMMI’s strategic objectives is to employ the best available technologies to enhance sound fiscal policies and support the efficient use of personnel time. We think Unimarket’s eProcurement system is a significant step into NMMI achieving that objective. NMMI is excited about moving out of our antiquated, time intensive paper process. Our users have been asking for an electronic solution for some time now and we finally found it with Unimarket.”
Peter Kane, CEO of Unimarket commented, “Unimarket is pleased to add New Mexico Military Institute as our first customer in New Mexico, reinforcing our continued national growth. This was a competitive and thorough, cross-campus process and we are delighted that once again a unanimous decision was underpinned by end-users preferring Unimarket as more user-friendly. The Unimarket solution has been built from the outset with ease-of-use as a key design element, as we firmly believe this drives adoption, which in turn drives value for the institution.”
The Unimarket eProcurement solution implementation is expected to launch campus-wide by April 2015.
