One office is all you need

Nexus, the Tyne and Wear (UK) Passenger Transport Executive, has begun implementing an e-procurement system using Strategix OneOffice software. Aimed at improving the efficiency of Nexus’ supply chain and ultimately the transport services offered to the citizens of Tyne and Wear, the new system replaces an inefficient and labour-intensive paper-based system.

Nexus provides, procures and promotes public transport and works closely with the Passenger Transport Authority and district councils on transport policy. Strategix has already completed the first phase of the project, having replaced Nexus’ legacy financial software systems with OneOffice financial management systems in a period of just 6 weeks, completing in September 2004.

A key objective of the new solution is to automate the process of putting contracts out to tender, allowing the Nexus purchasing department to spend more time obtaining the best value from external suppliers. The system will handle requisitioning of all Nexus’ externally sourced supplies, including spare parts, construction materials, office supplies and consumables, needed to support a public transport infrastructure that includes train, bus and ferry services.
