Accelerated compliance with national strategies and standards, e.g. Carter, eProcurement
With Carter, the Future Operating Model and the eProcurement strategy all highlighting opportunities for supply chain digitalization to help drive the £5bn annual savings target, the E4H platform was designed to eliminate some of the barriers preventing Trusts from meeting their individual targets. The platform is GS1 and PEPPOL certified.
Access to enhanced quality product information (GS1 compliant)

Reduction in supplier related queries and purchasing / accounting errors
With content and price lists managed by suppliers and approved by Trust Buyers, PO and invoice discrepancies and queries should be reduced.
