$2 million already saved thru Show-Me Shop!

 

With over 600 University staff now trained to use the UM eProcurement system "Show-Me Shop" and the number of orders placed increasing at an average of 40% each month, the University has seen a product cost savings of over $2 million so far! This is real money saved by departments as a result of the ePro program.

Cost savings are not the only benefit to the eProcurement program. Log on to Procurement’s website to read more about the program and its benefits: http://www.umsystem.edu/ums/fa/procurement/apps/epro

eProcurement is an innovative program designed to provide a virtual market place, which we call Show-Me Shop, for the ordering needs of University employees. There are many suppliers which the University does business with on a consistent basis. Procurement Services has negotiated or in many cases re-negotiated contracts with these vendors and have made them a part of the Show-Me Shop on-line catalog buying option. The Show-Me Shop currently offers access to 14 of the most commonly used vendor catalogs. Items include, but are not limited to, office supplies, scientific supplies, and computer equipment.

Vendors are excited about becoming a supplier available to our users through Show-Me Shop. The Procurement Commodity Specialists have started with the next round of supplier enablement. Soon there will be more vendors available on-line. If you purchase supplies, you can save your department a lot of money by using Show-Me Shop! Contact your campus Procurement Office to get access thru PeopleSoft to this wonderful ePro market place. We want you to become a part of this innovative program so you can realize the benefits that are being offered!
