UT Market Place Milestone: Sherry Roberts Places
20,000th Order

Who will win the free airline tickets?

The UT Market Place team has been asking this question since the March 4th announcement that Delta was offering two free airline tickets to the person who completed the 20,000th order in the UT Market Place. Our question was answered at 11:42 a.m. on June 16, 2016 when Sherry Roberts, Accounting Specialist for the Division of Biology, placed a routine order for a gallon of non-foam detergent.

Sherry was one of the earliest Market Place users.

She placed her first order on July 16, 2015 and has used the Market Place to complete more than 1,200 orders since then. Sherry shares the following about her Market Place experience: "I have been purchasing for the Division of Biology for years and have a huge volume of orders. I started doing orders online in 2006. The Market Place makes that process easier by being able to sign-in to one site to place multiple vendor orders. As online sites go, this one is easy to use. If you make a mistake the prompts are great for getting the corrected information entered so the order can proceed. Also I really like the ship to and bill to addresses stored for easy access."

What's next?

The Treasurer's Office has announced that the person who places the 22,500th order in the Market Place will win an iPad Mini. At the current rate of orders, the next milestone will be just around the corner. Stay tuned for more prize announcements.
