Partnership signed and First Contract win
cloudBuy plc (AIM: CBUY), the cloud ecommerce marketplace, is pleased to announce that it has partnered with a major US cloud based provider of procurement services, to provide a platform which allows end users to buy from successful tenders and provides visibility of the throughput and savings achieved. The Company's partner has an impressive client list covering public and private sector organisations in the US.
In conjunction with cloudBuy the new partner can now deliver an integrated suite of services covering all aspects of procurement from sourcing to settlement. Its client base represents over $3billion dollars in annual spend under management; these client organisations will now have access to the spend analysis, market intelligence and procure-to-pay services that cloudBuy brings to the partnership.
cloudBuy and its partner have created a mutual referral partnership. The first contract under the agreement will result in cloudBuy receiving a small percentage of the spend flowing through the system. The first customer to sign up is expected to be worth $600,000 per annum to cloudBuy, implementation is complete, with 'go live' at the beginning of April.
Ronald Duncan, Chairman of cloudBuy, commented:"The US market is the largest and most mature globally for procurement services. With our partner we can fast track our market entry into the F2000 and already have leads into government and education, healthcare, manufacturing, real estate, chemicals, energy, retail and fast food companies/industries.
This capability complements our work in Asia Pacific, particularly in India, where the CII members are of particular interest to global corporates, which source many of their manufactured goods from this group of suppliers."
