We are delighted to announce that suppliers can now register on our upgraded technology platform Pro-vide 2.0!
Pro-vide 2.0 is our new and improved platform which will enable us to provide the best procurement route for suppliers and buyers alike. We have put user requirements first in the development of Pro-vide 2.0 and this will be at the heart of our collaborative approach in the future, giving all users one central place to manage projects.
We have partnered with Jaggaer (the world’s largest independent spend management company) to develop Pro-vide 2.0, which has been specifically customised to the needs of our supplier and buyer communities.
Suppliers will experience improved functionality that will showcase their offering better than ever before, increasing the likelihood of being shortlisted for projects. Suppliers can demonstrate service offering capabilities, professional qualifications and accreditations to over 330 public sector buyers.
NEPRO³ is an OJEU compliant procurement framework which was set up to help the UK public buy and manage specialist professional services, whilst achieving better outcomes and improving value for money. Bloom have been the UK’s exclusive operator of the NEPRO solution on behalf of NEPO (The North East Procurement Organisation) since its original inception in 2012. NEPRO³ is the third iteration of the solution and will build on the successes to date, as the only procurement framework of its kind within the UK public sector marketplace.
Through operating the NEPRO solution we have gained vast amounts of knowledge, expertise and data; all of which has been utilised to ensure Pro-vide 2.0 offers a best in class platform for our buyer and supplier communities.
We will be working with all buyers and suppliers during the coming months to support a full transition to Pro-vide 2.0. The new and improved platform will be rolled out using a phased approach beginning in August 2019.
Having already completed over 4,500 projects on behalf of the UK public sector,
NEPRO³ and Pro-vide 2.0 will allow Bloom to further open up procurement to our community of buyers and suppliers. Ensuring the best outcomes for all.
