Pressbox (Press Release) - Cornhill Insurance & Get Real Systems Bring IT Procurement In-house

York – 4th December, 2000 – Get Real Systems, specialists in e-Procurement and the inbound supply chain, today announces that Cornhill Insurance PLC has selected its PROACTIS solution to streamline the procurement of all IT goods & services in-house. The initial pilot project will comprise 250 users and take just three months with plans to roll out PROACTIS across the whole of IT in the Cornhill Group.

“When deciding to bring our IT procurement back in-house, we had two major requirements. We needed an e-Procurement solution that would give us total control over the whole buying process, both catalogue and non-catalogue, plus effective control of costs,” says Alan Manton, Corporate IT Procurement Manager, Cornhill Insurance PLC and a member of the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply.”

“PROACTIS from Get Real Systems is the most cost effective and flexible solution for our supply chain requirements and has the added benefit of integrating easily with our third party systems such as accounting, fixed assets, budgeting and the support desk – a critical requirement for any business.”

“The adoption of PROACTIS by Cornhill Insurance is a testament to the solution, demonstrating how it can form the backbone for a procurement system when flexibility and control are key”, comments Steve Kane, Director of Get Real Systems. “This is a textbook example of how PROACTIS can help companies streamline procurement requirements.”
