What is acQuire?

Queen’s University is implementing a new e-Procurement system, acQuire, over the next couple of months that will modernize the current manual, paper-based procurement and payment processes. acQuire will offer staff and faculty an integrated marketplace for all procurement activities, including automating payment processes.

 

What are the major benefits of acQuire?

  • Single Sign-On -> Eliminating the need for multiple usernames and passwords for different supplier website logins
  • Allowing shoppers to place orders to multiple suppliers from one cart, but only having to check out once
  • Making it easier for shoppers to find, compare and make their selection of products from suppliers
  • Reducing the wait time between placing an order and having it filled by the supplier
  • Fast, electronic communication with suppliers
  • Effective reporting capabilities that will help Queen’s identify potential savings
  • Better visibility into both procurement and payment processes

 

How will the acQuire system be rolled out at Queen's?

Meetings with departmental administrators to detail the rollout process began in May and will continue throughout June, during which we will work with your department’s administrator to coordinate the timing of the rollout and training for each department.

Throughout May-August the Project Team has been and will continue to work with your department’s administrator to discuss the timing of the rollout and training.

 

When will you be able to start using acQuire?

Throughout May-August the Project Team will be working with your department's administrator to discuss the timing of the rollout and training.

 

How do you register for acQuire training?
