  • What we do

    We work closely with the biggest names in eProcurement whilst still operating entirely independently.

    Technology to fit your business

    Business is littered with tales of failed technology solutions because technology isn't enough. We interpret business needs to  identify how technology can be used effectively.

    For system and solutions providers

  • What others say

    Owen is a detailed and organised leader who created vision and action to support the implementation of common business systems and processes across Health in Scotland.


    He has real talent for change management and has an excellent leadership style. I would highly recommend his service and expertise to other organisations.

    eProcurement Implementation Project Manager NHS National Procurement

    Owen is a very professional supply chain manager and contributed to the success of many projects within BAA that I was Project managing.


    I have no hesitation in recommending Owen's work.


    Doug Howe

    Principal Consultant at Delta One Services Pty Ltd consulting to TfNSW on Opal Electronic Ticketing System project

    Owen has a deep understanding of procurement technology, but combines that with communication skills, and a clear sense of procurement and business strategy and delivery – a rare combination! The e-Procurement programme in Scotland is a real world-class success, and he’s played a major role in it through his work in driving progress and adoption of the technology in the NHS.
