Before embracing Basware’s eMarketplace solution, running projects like the ‘Welfare to Work’ program designed to help people back into work were often admin-intensive and not as effective as they had the potential to be.
With Basware’s eMarketplace solution, employees no longer need to manually find and organise training for jobseekers; instead, opportunities sourced from a list of pre-registered suppliers who quote electronically. This system has reduced administrative costs by 80% and enabled more people to secure training jobs.
Basware and DWP’s successful partnership has resulted in £2.5 million savings annually and has become a key contributor in the Government’s drive towards providing 25% of public sector business to SMEs.
Basware’s solution for DWP has been designed to permit any form of structured data to pass securely through government security firewalls and external third parties. As such, the government is now looking to roll out innovative applications of this service in other areas.
