UND has selected multiple JAGGAER spend-management solutions for digital transformation of their university wide procurement processes, including management of sensitive research materials.
The University had been using manual processes for the general procurement needs of the school as well as the specialized needs of research labs. UND selected JAGGAER’s Source to Settle spend management suite, along with Supplier Management and Enterprise Reagent Manager (ERM) to provide much needed visibility and compliance to their entire process. The solutions will be integrated with PeopleSoft, which is used by UND.
JAGGAER’s ERM is a solution that allows scientific staff throughout the organization to find, source and track proprietary chemicals, reagents and lab supplies from a single application. The solution optimizes chemical inventory and promotes regulatory compliance while managing risky hazardous materials. Information on this solution can be found here.
“Our selection was based on JAGGAER being able to demonstrate that its solution could materially improve service to the University community with the potential for lower prices, faster delivery times, at lower cost. In addition, JAGGAER is a known and accepted contracted vendor that has a competitive solicitation contract with E&I, a member-owned, non-profit purchasing cooperative serving higher education. A key aspect is their large installed user base at hundreds of schools around the world, which, with the assistance of our Core Technology Services (CTS) Office from the North Dakota University System will integrate with our existing PeopleSoft infrastructure and provide a powerful inventory management offering for our research needs. Our goal is that between JAGGAER, CTS and the efforts of our large user community we will enable our procurement department to deliver a heightened value to the organization,” says Jed Shivers, vice president of finance & operations/chief operating officer of UND.
