@UK and Agresso systems now linked

Sep 26, 2006
@UK PLC and Agresso have developed integration to allow the Agresso eProcurement module to seamlessly integrate to the @UK PLC eMarketplace, enabling both online procurement and transactional document exchange. Agresso web requisitioning now connects to @UK PLC supplier sites using ‘punch-out’ technology so Agresso Business World users can auto-populate requisitions from approved suppliers. XML data exchange facilitates the electronic transmission and reception of Purchase Orders and Invoices between the two systems.

Simon Lipscomb, National Sales Manager at @UK PLC said “This is a really exciting development in the continued growth of @UK PLC as the solution for the whole public sector market. Agresso are a recognized leader in providing Financial Management Systems to the Public Sector. Having a free flow of electronic purchase orders and electronic invoices to and from their suppliers will allow Agresso customers to maximize the benefit of their eProcurement system.”

Terry Donnelly, Strategic Partner Manager for Agresso said “@UK PLC has become a major force in the e-procurement market, and we have seen a growth in the number of our customers choosing their solutions. Their unique approach to supplier e-enablement and their focus on equipping suppliers to send and receive electronic Purchase Orders and Invoices means they add real value to the Agresso eProcurement system and generate solid returns on investment for our customers. Agresso is committed to working with industry standards to support our customers in accessing all supply-side solutions, and this development is a further example of our commitment.”

Agresso UK has around 430 customers, including over 80 local authorities.
