Caerphilly council had a history of stock problems across the borough, and turned to e-procurement as a way of streamlining the purchase and movement of stock.

Before the e-procurement system was installed by Get Real Systems (GRS), the council was already using GRS's procurement and stock management system.

GRS has taken the unusual step of going into partnership with the council and working closely to integrate the system.

Council head of procurement Andrew Maisey, who is instigating the council's transition into e-commerce, said, "The system has been on trial for four weeks and, based on its performance and our experience with GRS, we intend to be operating with e-procurement fully in the new year."

The new purchasing system is integrated with a warehouse system and a QST financial system, which is multi-layered. On the client-side, requirements are Microsoft Windows 95, 98, NT, 2000 or Millennium edition and Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.00.
