From staff requisition to product delivery to business office payment, k-Purchase makes ordering quick and easy integrating budget and accounting software. Best of all, k-Purchase is available completely free of charge to school districts.
Schools that use the k-Purchase Solution improved their workflow efficiency more than 75%. This translates to over 9,000 hours and $300,000 in savings for the average 2,500-student district. This is the equivalent of gaining five new employees at no cost.
Provides convenience and flexibility to manage, monitor and control your purchasing process by putting all the right tools, information and support at your fingertips. It is cloud-based, so no software or technical integration is required. Our QuickStart Advantage feature gets your staff up and running with minimal time and disruption.
Overcomes the substantial time and cost that, until now, have been an intractable part of the school purchasing process. You will enjoy greater efficiency and control during the creation and approval of requisitions, issuance of purchase orders, receipt of products, and reconciliation with accounting so that invoices can be paid with confidence.
Saves your staff additional time and money. The Marketplace is integrated with k-Purchase. Without the Marketplace, staff spend hours doing research before an order can be processed. With the Marketplace, they easily find the items they need at great prices — and, with a simple ‘click,’ create a requisition.
Your school will be assigned a Purchasing Advocate who will customize k-Purchase to your requirements, train your staff, and provide ongoing support. Your Advocate will work with your staff on an ongoing basis to understand their purchasing needs, find new vendors, negotiate pricing, and assist in the transition.
