Why E-Commerce?

The electronic transmission and payment for goods and services, e-commerce empowers people to carry out businesses without the barriers of time or distance. Electronic buying virtually eliminates processing errors, as well as being faster and more convenient for the user.

You also receive the following benefits:

  • Reduction in manual processing time
  • Better buying decisions
  • Less time spent in resolving invoice and order discrepancies
  • Increased opportunities for buying alternative products
Cutting Cost, Adding Value 

The E-Commerce Department manages all of the University's online financial platforms: the SciQuest Assign Cart ordering system, and our proprietary MaccaBid vendor bidding system.
