Barrow - in - Furness Borough Council has given @UK PLC go-ahead to provide supplier e-enablement for its local businesses, along with a full procure-to-pay system for the authority.
Barrow Finance Director Andy Mc Adam said, “There are two aspects to this project. The authority will make considerable efficiency savings, but at the same time we will be able to have a significant beneficial effect upon Local Economic Development. Local firms now able to supply us online can also go out to attract other council, business and consumer sales. This is very important to us, and there is a perfect fit between this announcement and other council activity such as our 'Heart of Barrow' regeneration programme".
