@UK is Europe's leading Cloud Platform with over 1 million users, which is used for University and Colleges' procurement along with local authority, schools and other Government and private sector procurement.
The GeM marketplace for Universities and Colleges which launched on 1st August 2011 is the only card-based national marketplace in the world. It was successfully delivered for the 800 Universities and Colleges in the UK and the 680 National Suppliers, proving that Cloud Ecommerce delivers large complex projects for Government on time and on budget.
Richard Benyon MP Minster for the Natural Environment, launched the @UK Green Ecommerce Marketplace in October 2010, which is now the largest repository of product carbon footprints in the world.
@UK was used by the National Audit Office to identify over £500 million in savings for 25% of NHS spend. The ground breaking SpendInsight system used to identify the savings resulted in the award of 2 PhDs in artificial intelligence.
