Basware Accepted on the Danish SKI Framework Agreement
Espoo, Finland – August 26, 2019 –Basware, a global leader in networked source-to-pay solutions, e-invoicing and innovative financing services, has been accepted on the latest SKI framework agreement for Cloud solutions supporting financial and administrative processes in Denmark. Basware is the only full suite Source to Pay supplier in the framework.
“Basware can now supply it leading solutions for accounts payable, purchase management and travel & expense management on pre-agreed terms and conditions without having to go through a tender process. By becoming a supplier to the SKI agreement, it is a lot easier for public buyers to engage with us at the best possible terms,” says Henrik Stanley-Madsen, Managing Director, Basware Denmark.
The public sector in Denmark has for many years been buying specialized IT solutions from a limited number of specialized public sector suppliers. SKI is a not-for-profit organization owned by the Danish state and the municipalities of Denmark. SKI has approx. 1300 members in their organisation.
A tender process in SKI results in a framework agreement that specifies which goods or services are for sale and the conditions and prices involved. By using a framework agreement from SKI, a public organisation can order its goods or services and be certain that requirements stipulated by the EU directives have been met. Hence, they do not need to carry out a long and expensive RFP process, but can buy straight from the SKI e-catalog list of approved suppliers and solutions.
“Basware has over 30 years of experience of delivering best of breed Source to Pay solutions to the private sector. Looking at the tasks and processes in the finance department, there are no big differences between public and private sector. There is no reason for the public sector not to take advantage of the competitiveness of the standard cloud solutions that we have been developing and selling to private companies for many years,” continues Stanley-Madsen.
Basware offers the largest open business network in the world and is the global leader in providing networked purchase-to-pay solutions, e-invoicing and innovative financing services. Our technology empowers organizations with 100% spend visibility by enabling the capture of all financial data across procurement, finance, accounts payable and accounts receivable functions.
