Unimarket increases investment in US and expands North American headquarters
Annapolis, MD – Unimarket, the leading provider of simple and easy-to-use software that brings all your procurement into one place, has completed top-to-bottom renovations of its Annapolis-based North American Headquarters to meet growing market demand for its eProcurement solutions.
The updated facility in Historic Downtown Annapolis will accommodate a growing team, better facilitate collaboration with employees, customers and partners throughout North America, and further strengthen its local presence in Annapolis.
The reason behind the renovation of its North American Headquarters is Unimarket’s accelerated momentum in the market, said Darren Blakely, President Unimarket North America. The company has increased its higher education customer base in North America by 50 percent over the last 18 months.
“As our sourcing, procurement and payment solutions have grown, so has market demand within the higher education sector,” Blakely said. “We’ve increased the size of our sales and marketing organization and our operations staff in Annapolis to support our expanding customer base. This new facility will allow Unimarket to continue growing in a sustainable way.”
Although Unimarket is based in Auckland, New Zealand, its North American Headquarters in Annapolis serves higher education institutions throughout North America. Additional staff are located in Denver, Colorado, and Omaha, Nebraska.
“While our focus has always been to deliver simple and easy-to-use procurement software, what truly makes Unimarket special is our people,” commented Brian Sweeney, Head of Operations North America. “At Unimarket, we pride ourselves on being the company our customers love to do business with, and this updated facility will help us continue to deliver against that goal.”

With sourcing, contracts, procurement, invoicing, payments and supplier marketplace product modules that are easily configured into Procure-to-Pay, Source-to-Settle and eMarketplace solutions, Unimarket automates many of the time-consuming manual tasks across the entire purchasing lifecycle, allowing organizations to make better strategic decisions more quickly, maximize cost savings and improve efficiency.
