Requisite Technology Delivers Content Management System to Consignia Tuesday 24 July 2001 PDF Print Requisite's eMerge(tm) content management system enables Consignia to create and modify supplier product and service information for all its UK operations London, UK, 24 July 2001 - Requisite Technology(r) Ltd today announced that it is providing its catalogue content management solution to Consignia plc, the new name for The Post Office, for its enterprise-wide e-procurement initiative. eMerge(tm), Requisite's catalogue content management solution, is currently under trial at over 40 sites across the UK. Consignia's e-procurement system, based on the SAP platform, delivers improved control over expenditure on indirect goods and reduced purchasing administration and processing costs to its UK operations. Requisite's eMerge catalogue content management system enables Consignia to create and modify supplier product and service information using an intuitive user-interface accessed via a standard web-browser, ensuring end-users always have the most up to date purchasing information. To date, fifteen preferred suppliers have joined the Consignia e-procurement initiative, in total offering over 12,000 catalogue items. These organisations benefit from more efficient ordering processes and are assured that Consignia purchases are made from their product ranges, not from competitors'. All catalogue content created for the Consignia e-procurement system is consistently classified under the Requisite Unifying Structure (RUS(tm)), a global content organisation standard, which enables the deployment of web-based, multi-supplier catalogues while allowing individual suppliers to differentiate products through its support of rich content formats in any major platform, including SAP's application. "We believe that applying consistent content organisation standards to our procurement processes will improve our internal efficiency. To this end, all new Consignia supplier contracts will include a requirement to support this initiative and provide electronic catalogue content," said Peter Stevens, Supplier Development Director, Consignia. "Suppliers are the crux of a successful e-procurement programme. We are delighted to be working with Consignia and fully support its drive to enable suppliers to reap the benefits of this new, advanced sales channel," said Peter Cosgrove, director of project management, Requisite Technology. -ends- Note to Editors: About Requisite Technology, Inc.
