"Thanks to ARCUS® eAUC, our procurement team has adopted reverse eAuctions across a range of categories. By incorporating eAuctions as part of our category management toolkit, this has resulted in Drax realising cost savings over and above traditional procurement methods, while reducing the time we spend negotiating with suppliers. The eAuction tool from Trade Interchange is a low-cost solution to leverage spend across common categories of spend across Drax.”Matthew Walker MCIPS, Supplier Relationship Manager – Turbines & Major Projects, Drax Power

Drax Power, who runs Europe’s biggest biomass-fuelled power station, used to manage their supplier service and product auctions using a combination of spreadsheets and paper-based systems.
This meant that auctions were not configured in a standardised format and information was difficult to locate, leading to inefficiencies within the procurement department.
They now run eAuction events using ARCUS® eAUC, a cloud-based module that encourages competitive online negotiations, leading to reduced procurement costs and improved visibility throughout the negotiation process.
Thanks to the cloud-based nature of ARCUS® eAUC, Drax Power now has the capacity to negotiate with more suppliers on a global scale and on a real-time basis.
