Andrew Door, Head of Procurement at Scottish Prison Services congratulates the Scottish Government eCommerce Shared Services and ELCOM for PECOS’s 20th anniversary.
“Congratulations to the eCommerce team on the 20th anniversary of PECOS. It’s testament to the SPPD’s commitment to the product set, it’s ongoing development and improvement that it has achieved this longevity. The Scottish Prison Service has embraced various aspects of eCommerce but our lack of end to electronic P2P capability has been a gap we have been seeking to fill for some time. We are clearly “late adopters” here. However, with the excellent support of the eCommerce shared service team we have recently gone live with our first PECOS users. One of the benefits of later adoption is that we are able to take advantage of the advances in content management and reporting that PECOS now provides and in due course to enable e-invoicing across all SPS sites. As our project is progressed, the benefits of P2P to our service have been increasingly clear. It will transform the way we manage transactional procurement and, over time, PECOS will provide SPS with a very detailed understanding of our external expenditure and to assist us to increase the value for money derived from this.”
