Ready to get strategic about sourcing?
At a time when every transaction needs to be strategically sourced, Ellucian is partnering with higher ed institutions to create a unified and collaborative supplier community. Ellucian Supplier Management provides the capabilities you need to launch and manage sourcing events, collaborate with suppliers, and deliver services to every stakeholder.
Onboard Suppliers With Ease
Invite suppliers to register online and submit their information for review and approval. Manage supplier approvals by automatically routing information to the appropriate parties.
Accelerate Supplier Engagement
Collaborate with suppliers all through a convenient portal enabling you to manage responses, view the status of events, and receive alerts and notifications.
Mitigate Risk and Fraud
Ensure the accuracy and reliability of your supplier data to reduce the risk of fraud and streamline payment transactions and procurement processes.
Source With Intelligence
Launch, publish, and evaluate complex events from a single platform. Establish evaluation and approval workflows to help your teams make pinpoint decisions. Award bids to a single supplier, multiple suppliers, or by line item.
Structure Bids for Greater Impact
Structure events that align with your specific sourcing strategy. Issue sealed or unsealed bids, assign weights and scores to sections, include line item bidding, and publish the terms and conditions your institution requires.
Gather and review requirements using assigned roles and committees, notifications, and communication workflows.
Align your sourcing strategies with your institutional mission
With Ellucian Supplier Management, bids and solicitations can be handled seamlessly online. When the college closed for the pandemic, we were able to continue processing those solicitations.
