LONDON BuckHickman InOne, a subsidiary of Premier Farnell, has signed a contract with the UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) for personal protective equipment (PPE) which is anticipated to generate annual sales of £2.3million. The UKAEA will get a tailored online procurement tool which will increase purchasing control, as well as a reduction in supplier to one.
Farnell InOne already provides the UKAEA with a tailored online catalogue of approximately 100,000 electric and electronic products to streamline purchasing and ensure that UKAEA employees buy from approved sources of supply. The additional PPE products will be available to order through the bespoke website at five of UKAEA’s six national sites.
Fiona Digby-Grant, head of corporate commercial at UKAEA, said, “The fully customised website enables us to control spending better. It also enables our staff to devote more time to their core job responsibilities and less to the ordering process.”
