Procurement time savings

Birmingham-based technology services provider Probrand has signed three sector leading company’s to its online IT purchasing hub, The IT Index. British Bakeries, Universal Salvage and City Space have adopted The IT Index to add value to the bottom line through time and money savings associated with sourcing and purchasing IT goods.

The IT Index saves an average of one day a week in procurement time by eliminating the need for supplier phone calls for best price and product availability. The solution daily updates a list of 50,000-plus IT products from 500 vendors in a secure online environment. Peter Robbins, managing director of Probrand, says: “At a time when margins are becoming ever tighter, organisations are looking to stretch their existing budgets to get more for their investment and IT purchasing is just one market vertical where we continue to help our customers meet and exceed this goal.”

IT Index is the first e-procurement solution to be accredited by The Institute of Chartered Accountants for England & Wales.
