'SWL Australia' opens for business

In the UK, Science Warehouse (SWL) is a leading provider of e-marketplace solutions which deliver year-on-year savings for their clients and provides a fast, intuitive, user-friendly interface.

SWL has an extensive client base across the UK public sector, including higher education and the NHS, as well as corporate clients such as in the construction sector. The solutions are entirely web-based and offered using a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model.

In 2014, working in partnership with the leading spend analytics provider Purchasing Index ANZ, SWL won its first Australian customer, the Charles Perkins Centre (CPC) at the University of Sydney. CPC users are now buying from over 2 million products live on the Science Warehouse eCatalogue.

In response to demand from other potential Australian customers, Science Warehouse is now launching a new subsidiary (SWL Australia) wih offices in Melbourne. This will ensure the same high level of product and service to Australia that SWL delivers to customers in the UK.

Richard Shine, Science Warehouse Sales Director, said: "This is a fantastic opportunity for Science Warehouse to really showcase a market-leading solution. Our confidence in market position is driven by our ability to deliver managed catalogue services, eQuotes, Free Format Ordering, and sophisticated eInvoicing, Science Warehouse captures services spend, facilitates detailed spend analysis and delivers year-on-years savings. This makes the Science Warehouse solution much more than just the best eCatalogue solution around; it’s a market-leading Source-to-Pay solution for all of your product and services spend.”
