@UK PLC prefers to integrate with finance systems vendors p2p systems. However, we believe from looking at a number of specialist p2p systems that the @Purchase2Pay system is definitely the best independent p2p system on the market and significantly easier to use than other p2p systems.
@UK PLC arrived at eprocurement from ecommerce as opposed to almost all other providers who came from a purchasing system background.
This provides @UK PLC with a number of unique competitive advantages.
B2C ecommerce systems have to be usable with out training, where as most procurement systems are unusable with out training.
ecommerce sites always have the correct prices including carriage, discounts etc. All catalogue based procurement system are unable to cope with carriage calculations, promotional discounts and sometimes even straight forward volume discounts.
As far as we are aware @UK PLC is the only eProcurement system with connections into all major banks for credit card acceptance
B2C ecommerce is not a trusted environment, eprocurement is normally a trusted environment and eprocurement processes often have flaws that were exploited at the start of B2C ecommerce. As far as we are aware @UK PLC is the only eprocurement system with PCI/DSS certification.

In addition @UK PLC has a strong track record in EDI , our original parent company @Software PLC wrote one of the top 10 EDI sites which was a shared system used by over 100 manufacturers to trade with all the major supermarkets. @Software PLC also wrote financial systems along with expert systems and computer aided application development for a blue chip client base.
