Pioneering Higher Education Procurement for over 17 years…

Founded in the scientific Higher Education sector in 2000, Science Warehouse has grown and forged its place as the chosen university wide B2B spend management solution. Our solutions are currently used by 17,000 unique users from over 30 UK universities each month.

With a yearly spend of over £500 million though our eMarketplace, Higher Education customers are able to become more compliant, reduce inefficiencies and make cashable savings. Our supplier managed eCatalogue service provides Buyers with a single, user-friendly platform for ordering from multiple suppliers, integrating electronic trading through purchase to pay.

Forget off contract rogue spend, incorrect invoices and manual processing; our spend management solutions fully integrate with all leading ERP systems, meaning you can easily manage Higher Education wide spend by having a greater level of control and compliance.

Unlocking value in your data

The valuable data from any P2P process can be analysed by our Spend Analytics software – Spend Science, providing unrivalled reporting and spend visibility. The powerful and unique artificial intelligence behind our solution enables you to analyse and classify your spend data to line level, meaning you see a true picture of your overall spend and can plan your procurement strategy on solid foundations.

Increased efficiency savings

Our solutions enable swift and seamless eTrading, with PO’s and invoices all being transferred electronically. No longer will Accounts Payable Departments have to manually process invoices and solve the related issues, giving you more time to focus on the value added tasks that strategically benefit the business.

“The solution is a powerful purchasing tool for all staff including researchers and academics but also provides procurement with essential visibility and financial control over spend.”

Tim Brannon- University of Leeds

“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.”

Anj Cooke- University of Bristol

“Adopting the Science Warehouse system has significantly enhanced the purchasing experience of users at the University as well as improving control of expenditure and contract compliance at a strategic level.”

Ian Jarvey- University of Manchester

“Science Warehouse has a proven track record on delivering substantial savings to universities as large as ourselves. The implementation of this solution has given our users an ease of online purchasing with set prices, rich catalogue data and selected suppliers resulting in a friendly low-cost marketplace.

John Feraday- University College London
