Gary Link, E&I Cooperative Purchasing Senior Vice President – Contracts said: “E&I’s members are under considerable pressure to save money and better spend and contract visibility is critical to that effort.

Our member institutions now have easy and affordable access to Spikes Cavell’s class leading spend analytics and related products and services.”
Luke Spikes, Spikes Cavell’s Chief Executive said: “We’re delighted to have emerged victorious from a thorough competitive solicitation run by E&I.
