British Energy has signed a multi-million pound deal with IBM to deploy a new supply chain strategy.
The UK’s biggest electricity generator has signed a “multi-year” agreement with IBM, which will see Big Blue work with various suppliers to design and build a new supply chain that will save the utility money.
British Energy is aiming to improve supply chain performance across its eight nuclear stations and one coal-fired power station is has in the UK.
The contract will address supplier performance, safety, and business process improvements.
IBM already has an existing management contract with British Energy, which was signed in 2004.
John Sexton, head of British Energy’s supply chain, said, “British Energy has already achieved a great deal under the existing agreement with IBM, and our continued relationship will help us to provide a best-in-class supply chain service to all business customers.”
