eCommerce Marketplace Contract Win
@UK platform selected for leading shared procurement service
@UK, (AIM: ATUK) the provider of eProcurement and eCommerce software, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a contract to provide an eCommerce Marketplace to a local authority and NHS Services partnership.
This was the first local authority and primary care trust to form a partnership, with a single chief executive and joint management team. It was set up in 2008, and @UK PLC has won the contract to provide them with a single system for electronic procurement.
Ronald Duncan Chairman of @UK PLC commented, "We have worked extensively with individual Local Government and NHS organisations and the efficiencies of a 'joined up' approach are clear. We therefore expect this segment of the market to grow significantly as part of the NHS restructuring and believe we are well positioned as the only company which is a market leader in both sectors to benefit from this growth."
