As the technology base for the State of Georgia’s e-procurement system, CherryRoad implemented Oracle’s PeopleSoft Enterprise Supplier Relationship Management suite of procurement applications and integrated them with an electronic shopping and catalog management solution. The project — which represents one of the first statewide implementations of the complete PeopleSoft Supplier Relationship Management applications — was completed on-time and on-budget.
