Skanska signs five-year agreement with Asite for their cloud eProcurement solution
across their supply chain

 

Skanska UK has signed a five-year enterprise agreement with Asite for the use of Asite’s award-winning collaborative Software as a Service technology (cSaaS). The deal sees Skanska implementing Asite’s eProcurement and supply chain integrations solutions throughout the entire organisation and across their supply chain relationships.

Asite’s technology will provide Skanska with a single integrated solution for the procurement process across their portfolio of construction and facilities management works. Both Skanska staff and their supply chain partners will use Asite eProcurement to manage their purchasing cycle including tendering, purchasing, delivery logistics and goods receipt, and payment processes. As part of the enterprise solution, Asite will be closely integrating with Skanska’s back-office ERP system, Sage Intuita. By automating and streamlining the purchasing process, Asite’s technology significantly reduces transaction costs and will ensure that Skanska are furthering their aim of creating true partnerships with their supply chain. 

Suppliers will be able to share their catalogue of products on Asite to allow Skanska and all other buyers to buy directly from them online, which they can track, fulfil, and directly invoice back via Asite.  Suppliers can either use their Asite account or an end-to-end digital solution that integrates with the supplier’s back-office systems.  

This will assist all participants in the Skanska supply chain by increasing transparency and providing true workflow management across the complexities of the supply chain management process. The Asite solution will ensure a fully transparent four-way match of orders, delivery tickets, goods receipt notes, and invoices for all transactions and ensure appropriate visibility for all stakeholders.

Andy MacAskill, Skanska UK Supply Chain Director, said "We are delighted to be working with Asite as our platform provider to deliver eProcurement across our supply chain. Asite will be an important part of our vision to deliver a One Skanska best practice approach to the procurement of materials, products, services and subcontract packages throughout project lifecycles. The implementation of eProcurement will provide significant efficiency benefits to our supply chain and contribute to establishing Skanska as the leading construction procurer in the UK."

Tony Ryan, Asite CEO, said “We are delighted to bring on board a client with the pedigree of Skanska UK on a multi-year enterprise agreement. Skanska is a leader in the construction industry, renowned for their progressive business practices, and I take great pleasure in welcoming them and their supply chain to the Asite community.
