Universities strive to provide educational excellence that changes, improves and ensures effectiveness in preparing students for successful careers. Various requirements are needed to help achieve this aim, such as:

  • High quality equipment to support research
  • State of the art facilities
  • Better engagement with institutions, stakeholders and suppliers
  • Choice and opportunity for students

Although one of the main priorities is to invest in equipment and innovation, universities are constantly under pressure to cut expenditure and increase service levels. In fact, two of the biggest challenges in education are finding the correct equipment with the right amount of product information and understanding the pricing structure. A centralised marketplace is the ideal solution, connecting different departments of a university together to ensure collaborative research and the purchase of products to meet all requirements.
