Netting more orders


MORE THAN three quarters of all construction industry purchases will be carried out electronically using e-commerce tools by the end of 2002, according to a survey carried out by Ramesys Construction Services.

Xchange, Ramesys's key product, enables contractors to process orders electronically with their suppliers - for less than the cost of a stamp, the company says.

Its survey, which canvassed 250 senior construction professionals, revealed that 92% of firms are now using the internet for work purposes with almost a third now placing orders for building materials electronically.

Some 95% say they will be trading through e-commerce within the next three years.
