Leading construction services provider, McNicholas, has transformed its supply chain by removing 90% of paper invoices with the Causeway etrading solution, Tradex. McNicholas was receiving thousands of paper invoices and needed to adopt an electronic invoicing solution to increase efficiency and reduce costs. Now, more than 90% of suppliers are using Tradex to submit their invoices to McNicholas.

Finance Director Andrew Kerr commented on the roll out:

“The key to this success was to follow the Causeway advice and be bold within a supportive framework. Suppliers need to believe you’re serious about the implementation project and explaining this position and being cooperative with our suppliers, rather than dictatorial, was integral to the process. We held open days and seminars and even had a helpline for suppliers, which was run in conjunction with the Tradex team.”

Steve Payne IT Application and Development Manager added:

“Tradex integrates very well with our finance package and eliminates the need to print, handle and manually key in invoices, which reduces the amount of paper that both suppliers and McNicholas use.”
