Buying is Simpler and More Effective for Red Raiders at Texas Tech University
The procurement challenge is bigger at Texas Tech University, which supports more than 51,000 students and comprises four component institutions. To enhance the buying process, the university’s procurement team enlisted JAGGAER to develop a comprehensive source-to-pay solution that would reduce costs and improve efficiency.
According to Jennifer Adling, Managing Director of Procurement Services at Texas Tech, “JAGGAER delivers a one-stop platform for all our procurement, contracting, and payment needs.”
JAGGAER’s HigherMarkets e-Procurement solution also integrated exceptionally well with the university’s existing financial system, Banner Finance from SunGard Higher Education. This provided a more complete and detailed view of spending patterns. It also allowed the procurement team to manage the entire buying cycle. As a result, Texas Tech University was able to drive more spending to preferred suppliers, reduce off-contract spending and improve its overall spend management.
