From autumn 2018, University of Reading began to implement a system to purchase some of our goods and services, such as furniture, lab supplies and office supplies, using an eMarketplace. Online catalogues will be accessed via Unit4 Business World (Agresso), making it quicker and easier for staff to buy the things you need for your work at the University. At the same time, this will make the ‘behind the scenes’ financial processes, such as invoicing and supplier management, more efficient.
The supplier, Wax Digital, was selected to provide the software for the e-Marketplace. Staff training will be available from January 2020 for anyone who buys goods from the e-Marketplace – details of this training will be published on this site and through other communication channels, such as the UoR Staff Portal and In Brief.
