Annapolis, MD - Unimarket, a leading eProcurement software provider, has announced that it has been adopted as an approved vendor by the Illinois Public Higher Education Cooperative (IPHEC).

IPHEC is a cooperative organization comprising all 13 public institutions of higher education in Illinois, including Chicago State University, Illinois State University, and the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. The organization’s adoption of Unimarket means that public schools across the state now have more choice when looking to optimize and improve their processes through eProcurement.

“Unimarket is thrilled to be awarded approved vendor status by IPHEC,” says Darren Blakely, President Unimarket North America. “It’s important that higher education institutions have choice when selecting an eProcurement solution provider that meets their needs and we can’t wait to help public schools in Illinois get procurement done right.
