With around 26,000 students and almost 6,000 staff, the University of Birmingham is one of the UK's largest universities.
The article featured in the summer issue of Education Technology, reveals how the University has dramatically improved its control of expenditure and budgets by implementing a specialist eProcurement system from PROACTIS.

The University set out to streamline its processes by implementing an eProcurement system to:
  • Take control of expenditure and the management of budgets
  • Create a transparent purchasing process that makes information available at the point-of-decision
  • Save money by consolidating the University’s substantial annual spend with preferred suppliers
