RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Nov. 02, 2018 — JAGGAER, the world’s largest independent spend management company, today announces that Florida Polytechnic University has just gone live with JAGGAER’s Spend Analytics solution. Florida Poly was founded in 2012 and is the newest of the twelve institutions in the State University System of Florida. It is the state’s only public polytechnic university and focuses exclusively on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education.
Florida Polytechnic University selected JAGGAER’s spend analytics solution to provide increased visibility into the school’s Procurement Department’s specialized spend requirements. With a focus on a STEM curriculum, it’s critical to understand suppliers and have real time access to advanced data analytics for more informed decisions. Florida Poly was awarded the prestigious 23rd Annual Achievement of Excellence in Procurement® (AEP) for 2018 from the National Procurement Institute, Inc. (NPI).
“STEM requires support from a set of suppliers that provide unique materials, in a highly competitive arena. The dynamic state of tariff policy has made our school even more attuned to where we spend our budget and where we may need to make changes. JAGGAER enables our institution to make the best data backed decisions for the school, and ultimately our students,” said David O’Brien, Florida Poly’s director of procurement.
JAGGAER has been the number one choice among higher education institutions, including over 600 colleges and university campuses, more than 70% of top research universities, and K-12 school districts, for over 20 years.
