M-Marketsite

M-marketsite is the university’s online catalog ordering system where faculty and staff can place orders from many different suppliers. Shopping through M-marketsite is similar to shopping online, and it offers many benefits:

  • One login gives you access to multiple suppliers and products, and centrally located catalogs
  • Easy to identify and place orders for contracted items
  • “Favorites” shopping-cart functionality offers quick reordering of frequently ordered products
  • Prices listed are the university’s negotiated prices
  • Suppliers listed all accept shortcode(s)
  • Orders up to $25,000 can be placed without Procurement approval, since the competitive bid process has already taken place. Products and prices can be compared among many suppliers prior to ordering
  • Required approvals are automatically routed as needed
  • Ordering and invoicing are done electronically
  • Order history is available online in M-Pathways and in M-marketsite

M-marketsite is integrated with the M-Pathways ePro requisition. For authorization to place orders through M-marketsite, users must submit an online access request.
