Contract Win in Australia
cloudBuy (AIM: CBUY), the cloud eCommerce marketplace, announces a contract win with an Australian State Government (the "State") to provide an eprocurement marketplace. Phase 1 will be to implement an end to end electronic procurement marketplace for the Treasury department and all IT purchasing.
An implementation fee has been agreed and ongoing cloudBuy revenues will be derived via a transactional charge, calculated as a percentage of the value of spend. Based on the current procurement card spend, it is estimated that this could generate a fee of approximately AUD 900,000 per annum which could in due course rise to a maximum of AUD 7.2 million per annum.
The initial contract, which is for a minimum period of 6 months, covers the implementation and delivery of the Software as a Service cloudBuy eMarketplace solution and support of the onboarding process of 20 key Treasury and ICT suppliers for Phase 1 of the State's shared service deployment. The marketplace will integrate with the State's SAP enterprise platform, enabling electronic invoicing and purchase orders.
Ronald Duncan, Chairman of cloudBuy plc, commented: "This is the first cloudBuy emarketplace to be signed in Australia and follows our earlier contract wins for spend analytics in this market. It validates our new business model of taking a small percentage of the spend through the system. It is pleasing to report that there are a significant number of other similar potential customers in the pipeline."
