Network Visibility Powers Performance
With an annual spend within Logistics of approximately £100million, UK Power Networks initially wanted to simply streamline the communication of purchase orders to suppliers by moving away from laborious manual processes to an electronic means of communication, creating a more robust mechanism.
UK Power Networks decided to go the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) route and selected TrueCommerce, with its managed intelligent B2B platform, to automate the ordering process and to provide visibility into its key supplier community.
“Subscribing to the TrueCommerce service has enabled us to collaborate closely with our suppliers. Not only does this help our suppliers to manage cost based on accurate and timely orders, but it also helps us to provide an even better service to our customers. By improving order quality and visibility we benefit and so do our suppliers.” Nigel Rouse, Head of Logistics at UK Power Networks
