ESM Expands International Reach with Major New Customer

ESM, a leading provider of spend management solutions, announced today that the Higher Colleges of Technology, one of the largest higher education institutions in the United Arab Emirates, is deploying ESM’s full suite of procurement, sourcing and contract management tools.

HCT serves 24,000 students across 17 campuses in the United Arab Emirates in locations that include Abu Dhabi and Dubai. The first phase of the deployment will go live this month, just three months after the contract was inked.
