Two of Europe’s leading e-commerce companies have joined forces in a strategic alliance to deliver substantial electronic trading benefits for UK healthcare companies. In this pioneering move, document management company, Version One, has partnered with GHX to provide healthcare organisations throughout Europe with the ability to move towards true electronic procurement trading.

Through tight and seamless integration into existing Accounting Systems, authorised users can place orders in seconds directly onto suppliers’ systems. No paper documentation is printed or handled, resulting in huge savings in labour costs and, since orders are automatically sent electronically, massive postage and paper costs are also eliminated.

Simon Nicholls, UK Sales Manager, GHX Europe, said “We are very proud to have linked GHX with the market leader in automated document management and delivery. This partnership will enable GHX and Version One to deliver significant savings to our current and future clients and is key to expanding the impact of GHX's solutions across the entire supply chain.”

Version One’s Sales and Marketing Director, Tony Bray, added, “We are delighted to offer this powerful, collaborative software system to healthcare organisations. Clients who have already adopted this system tell us they’re already making savings of over £1/4 million per annum as well as dramatically increasing their productivity.”
