Just like all global and complex organisations, bp sources goods and services from a great many suppliers all over the world.
In a drive to improve visibility, control and transparency, bp has appointed Prenax and Schweitzer, leading specialist partners for managing subscription-based resources, to centralise and manage this category of spend.
This puts bp at the forefront of forward thinking companies setting a new trend in sustainable procurement, moving away from manual transactions and expense claims into more controlled and streamlined environments.
The new processes will improve the end-user experience for individual stakeholders and will increase efficiencies and productivity across the business.
“B2B marketplaces offer a huge opportunity for procurement to provide user-friendly choice, with dynamic market pricing to business users. Not only does this provide efficient and competitive supply, but also rich data to inform and adjust utilisation patterns and policies. We are excited to be adding Prenax to our growing list of category-leading B2B marketplaces in bp”.
