RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., June 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- JAGGAER, the world’s largest independent spend management company, today announces that Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C), has continued its long relationship with JAGGAER, utilizing multiple JAGGAER ONE spend management platform solutions to manage all university wide procurement processes in one place.
Ohio’s largest public community college, Tri-C serves more than 55,000 students each year across 190+ certificate and degree programs. Cuyahoga Community College operates a multi-campus college district in Northeast Ohio, with Cuyahoga County as its primary service area; Tri-C serves Cleveland and the surrounding communities.
Tri-C is utilizing JAGGAER ONE spend management modules including Invoicing, Sourcing, Procure to Pay and Contracts. The school discussed their adoption of JAGGAER in 2017 and has enjoyed continued success with the company’s solutions.
“Beginning in 2018, Cuyahoga Community College passed a bond levy for $227 million to be used for construction of new buildings and upgrading of existing equipment. As part of those efforts, our department was tasked with performing numerous RFPs to procure millions of dollars of equipment, ranging from Audio Visual, Medical and IT Equipment. Utilizing JAGGAER’s Sourcing, we were able to streamline the process and maximize our budget, achieving approximately 10-15% savings on these purchases,” said Stephen Hilbert, Executive Director of Supplier Managed Services, Cuyahoga Community College.
Tri-C is a member of the Inter-University Council Purchasing Group of Ohio, frequently called IUC-PG, a purchasing consortium comprised of the purchasing officers of the state institutions of higher education. Founded in 1964, the IUC-PG creates and maintains purchasing agreements for use by its 87 members (the 14 state universities, 15 community colleges, 8 technical colleges and 51 independent educational institutions).
The purpose of the IUC-PG is to achieve standardization of requirements, methods of operation, and to buy at optimum quantity discounts. JAGGAER currently manages over $50 billion in spend for 650+ colleges and campuses in the United States alone, as well as schools in the UK, EU, AU and MENA. JAGGAER also has extensive market penetration with Canadian schools and has been adopted by community colleges and K-12 systems throughout the United States.
