Implementing eProcurement and eInvoice – A Case Study

This presentation provides an overview of the implementation of eProcurement and eInvoicing at UNC Charlotte. The main thrust of the presentation is non-technical, although some technical topics are discussed at a high level. Emphasis is put on project management, vendor interaction, impact upon the purchasing process, testing, and on-going support.

Topics:

  • Project Team make-up
  • Working with SciQuest and SunGard
  • Architecture of the integration component
  • System and user acceptance testing
  • Data syncing and integration
  • Re-engineering purchasing processes
  • Using hosted and punch-out vendors
  • Authenticating users and custom integration
  • Keeping in step with Banner upgrades
  • Roll-out approach

This presentation would be useful to those universities that are either currently in an implementation process or plan to implement eProcurement and eInvoicing in the coming fiscal year.
