Connecting NHS buyers with suppliers
During 2018 NHS Shared Business Services, in partnership with leading technology company Virtualstock, is set to launch a new eMarketplace, The Edge4Health, to the NHS - at no cost at all!
That's right; technology designed to retail ecommerce best practice will be free for all NHS organisations to use, fundamentally improving how products are bought and paid. What's more, The Edge4Health is a fully mobile solution that enables requisitioning, approval and receipting on the go. Goodbye desktop, hello 21st century!
Using The Edge4Health, requisitioners can easily search organisation approved catalogues to locate and requisition products, for buyers to electronically approve at the right price. The technology automatically converts approved requisitions to purchase orders (POs) and transmits them to the supplier.
The fully integrated purchase-to-pay platform enables electronic receipting of goods for smooth supplier eInvoicing whilst auto-PO flip reduces administration in the payment process.
The Edge4Health is designed to interface with existing accounting and procurement technologies, driving efficiencies and improving compliance - an issue we know is important.
Saving time and money
The Edge4Health has been designed to enable the NHS to unlock potential efficiencies set out by Lord Carter and other national strategies.
Not only will the technology reshape your back office functions; more importantly it will drive consistent, effective demand management through better visibility of costs, contracts and controls.
A roll-out plan is currently being agreed with individual trusts and a date that Finance & Accounting clients can expect to start using The Edge4Health will be communicated to clients as plans are finalised.
