Procserve wins Department for Work and Pensions award for innovation

Thursday, July 19, 2012

Procserve has received a award from the Department for Work and Pension (DWP) marking innovation in eMarketplace’s improved access to contracts for small businesses while providing efficiency savings.

Working with the Department, Procserve’s development of its “Low Value Procurement (LVP)” solution allowed to shorten the time it takes to deliver vital training to DWP’s customers, significantly boosting the opportunity for a swift return to work and reducing the number of benefit claims.

The solution is designed especially to lower the barriers for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to bid for the business of delivering this training provision and therefore represents an important “Win-Win” in two crucial areas.

The cloud-based platform allows the department to buy goods and services from a pre-approved group of suppliers through a centralised eMarketplace, which makes it easier and more efficient for both buyers and suppliers, supporting Government’s drive towards 25% of the value of public sector contracts being fulfilled by SMEs.
         
Nigel Clifford, CEO of Procserve, commented: “By embracing eEnablement in the approach to its business, DWP is leading the way and reaping major benefits.”
