Leading university seeks to facilitate better business decisions.

Research Triangle, NC, March 23, 2021 – JAGGAER Spend Analytics is now live and operational at Auburn University, enabling the land, sea and space grant institution to gain more insight into its global spend. The Spend Analytics module, which is an extension of Auburn’s existing implementation of the Supplier Management and Sourcing modules of JAGGAER ONE, provides users with more consistent classification and supplier normalization to enable better sourcing and supplier decisions, together with deep and extensive analytics capabilities.

The University has invested in an eight-year contract that will run through to 2027, as reported in May 2020.

“We were looking for a comprehensive procurement solution that would improve efficiency and enable a reorganization of responsibilities,” said Missty Kennedy, Director of Procurement and Business Services at Auburn University. “These included getting better visibility over spend and procurement to facilitate better business decisions and freeing up human resources to focus on more strategic tasks such as holistic supplier management as a result of the automation or minimization of manual tasks.”

“We have a lot of talented individuals working here and by implementing JAGGAER we will be able to unleash more of their potential, providing enhanced value in pursuit of Auburn University’s vision to lead and shape the future of higher education,” Kennedy concluded.

“The JAGGAER team did an excellent job classifying data, configuring the application and analytics, reviewing Auburn University’s feedback and loading the data,” said Trina Payne, JAGGAER Project Manager, Professional Services. “Overall, it was a very successful project with a smooth and efficient transition of resources. Auburn University is at the forefront of digital transformation in higher education and it was a delight working with Missty and her team,” she added.
