Northcore Technology Enables Health Services Executive Sourcing Pilot(December 29, 2011)
TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 12/29/11 -- Northcore Technologies Inc. (TSX:NTI)(OTCBB:NTLNF), a global provider of asset management and social commerce solutions, announced that its technology platform had been successfully deployed for the Irish Government Health Services Executive's (HSE) initial online acquisition pilot.
Northcore had worked closely with staff from the HSE to configure Northcore's core strategic sourcing product, Asset Buyer, as required to support an initial pilot engagement. The platform was used to source and purchase a large volume of health care supplies for multiple regions. A complete multi-phased sourcing initiative was performed, including multiple request for quotation elements and a final stage reverse auction.
This event was the culmination of a focused effort on the part of both the HSE and Northcore teams. The HSE is the largest purchaser in the state, spending in the region of EUR4billion annually on a diverse range of goods, services and works projects.
A comprehensive review of the process and the resulting benefits will be forthcoming through a disclosure by both parties.
