University of Bristol

The University of Bristol is one of the world’s top 50 universities according to the QS World University Rankings, with outstanding teaching and research. The University is globally distinguished, pushing the boundaries of knowledge to address the needs and concerns of the world in the 21st century.

Since switching to Science Warehouse, we have seen improvements in compliance, efficiency and cost savings. The take-up by academic staff has been excellent, far greater than we experienced previously.

Within 6 months of go-live, the University of Bristol had an annualised spend through the Science Warehouse solution well over £5m. Strong user adoption driving spend through the solution, increased contract compliance, best value purchasing and improved services deliver year-on-year substantial efficiencies. 

Challenges

  • Required a managed solution that let the university maintain full control.
  • Ensuring users found exactly what they needed to purchase for their work.
  • Improving compliance, increasing efficiency and delivering substantial cost savings.

Solution

Science Warehouse worked closely with the University of Bristol to implement the solution, meaning a seamless transition and minimum disruption. Within months of Science Warehouse going live, over 1,500 users were actively purchasing using the solution with the university having an annualised spend though the solution of over £5m. Strong user adoption driving spend through the solution, increased contract compliance, best value purchasing and improved efficiencies deliver year-on-year substantial cost savings.

The Science Warehouse solution has been proven over 15 years with a large number of University customers to deliver real benefits to both individual University staff and the universities themselves. It is a smarter, easier, more cost-effective way to procure goods and services.

Feedback from staff at the University of Bristol has been very positive. The University is continuing to roll out the Science Warehouse solution to more and more users and extending it to manage an ever-increasing supplier base.
