Dartford & Gravesham NHS Trust Selects Integra e-Procurement to Streamline Efficiencies

Capita IB Solutions, part of the Capita Group and a market leader in providing world-class financial accounting software, e-Procurement and bespoke solutions to service-centric organisations, today announced that Dartford & Gravesham NHS Trust have selected Integra e-Procurement to streamline efficiencies in its procurement processes and replace an old legacy system.

Dartford & Gravesham NHS Trust, who have been assessed as one of the better performing NHS Trusts in the country by the Care Quality Commission, wanted to implement an automated purchase-to-pay system that would reduce maverick spending, enable better supplier controls, create greater efficiencies for the procurement process and facilitate collaborative working initiatives with other NHS Trusts.

Capita IB Solutions, with a proven track record of delivering e-Procurement solutions to NHS Trusts, will introduce efficiency benefits through the streamlining of processes and through the seamless integration to the Integra financial modules that are already in place at the Trust.

Over the coming months, Dartford & Gravesham NHS Trust also plans to implement additional procurement modules that will extend the capabilities of Integra e-Procurement, including Purchase Ordering and Integra Catalogue Expert, which will be linked to the local procurement hub, creating a completely electronic and automated purchase-to-pay lifecycle. Ordering will be managed through a Trust wide deployment of eSeries.

Dartford & Gravesham NHS Trust joins a growing community of public sector organisations that are taking advantage of procurement automation through Integra e-Procurement, which is designed with customers needs in mind. With a wide range of procurement solutions available, Capita IB Solutions are able to help organisations realise the enormous cost savings and efficiency benefits that result from a more strategic approach to procurement.
