What our education customers say
Educational institutions trust Fraxion as the best procurement software for managing purchasing processes and operational spend. The procurement software automates processes, and empowers staff to get the goods, services, and equipment they need within budget.
“Before we were filling out forms in triplicate, then we had to get a number of signatures for approval. Now we’re just so much more efficient. Spend limits can be set, approvals are expedited, and a complete audit trail is always digitally available for full transparency. We primarily use Fraxion for POs and approving expenses. It seamlessly integrates into our MS Dynamics GP system, which helps make our workflow a lot quicker. We’ve eliminated something like 90 percent of our paperwork.”

Frequently asked questions about Fraxion's procurement software for education. Need more information?
We don’t have a procurement department in our school; how will that impact implementation, onboarding, and best practices?
In-house procurement skills are not required. Fraxion is rapidly deployed, and all users can be up and running with minimal training.
We work you to configure chart of accounts, budgets, business rules, and purchasing policies. The system provides the internal controls and automated workflows to achieve spend control, efficiency, and best procurement practices.
Can we manage IT procurement processes in Fraxion?
Yes, Fraxion enables easy standardization of IT procurement processes across locations with centralized control. When submitting purchase or capex requisitions, quoting steps, and multi-level approvals can be configured to manage risk.
You can pre-approve purchase requests for your forecasted IT equipment needs at the beginning of the year, subject to approval structures, supplier authorization, policy, and budget compliance. Education faculty and staff can create purchase orders against that approved request for the volumes they need, as requirements arise throughout the year.
Tracking costs to assets is also possible and useful in determining when it’s more cost effective to replace than to repair equipment.
Can we track expenditure against projects and budgets (E.g., new sporting facilities, campus renovations, etc.)?
Yes, you can track expenditure against projects and budgets, and review available and committed spend in real-time before approving or incurring any costs.
Reporting on spend by transaction, budget, suppliers, and users is also supported by the system.
