What our clients say

“We were using our ERP system to do our purchasing and it was really difficult for people to use, so a lot of people were just going around the system. We wanted to automate and streamline the process and make it easy for our employees. Unimarket was able to provide all of that for us.”

Daisy Anderson, Director of Procurement Services, Messiah University.

“I wanted a partner that would collaborate with us, that would understand us as an organization. It’s like a marriage when you sign up with a new procurement solution. You don’t sign up for a year, it’s not like a commodity — you’re buying a partnership.”

Wanda Hernandez, Executive Director of Operations and Procurement, Touro College & University System.
