Mustang Market, Western's new purchasing system, is now open for business. This e-Procurement tool provides a positive and simple online shopping experience and showcases Western vendors' products and pricing. Here's what Mustang Market users are saying about the experience:
- With Mustang Market, I'm finding that I can place orders for my research laboratory in less than half the time I spent using the old system. I especially like two features: first, not needing a large number of individual usernames and passwords for vendor sites and, second, being able to place orders for multiple vendors and checking out only once using a single speed code. Keep up the good work!
Dr. Rodney DeKoter, Researcher
- This is one of the best project roll outs that I have seen. Congratulations and thanks. Krishna Patel, Director
- Mustang Market's ease of use makes purchasing a much easier process overall and helps alleviate speed code and shipping errors. The ability to scan and attach quotes directly to a purchase requisition speeds up the entire procurement process and this is especially helpful for purchases requiring multiple quotes. The documents are fowarded directly to Procurement Services for review and all quotes/documents are then retained in the system. Overall, I like where Mustang Market is leading the purchasing experience for the University. Stephen Mallinson, Assistant Stores Coordinator
- Our department has experienced both financial and reporting benefits with Mustang Market. For example, we have been able to take advantage of negotiated service contracts that we were unaware of and this has resulted in budgetary savings. Further, the level of detail Mustang Market provides allows us to report more effectively without having to wait for credit card transactions to be processed. F. Sean Wheatley, Manager of Business Operations
