Markit starts cooperation with Bisnode in 19 countries to centralise ICT purchasing


Markit has been chosen as the purchasing partner for PCs and related ICT equipment for 19 countries within the Bisnode Group.
Markit was selected as the main partner, in face of strong competition from leading European ICT companies, in a thorough RFP process conducted by Bisnode.

The main aim of the Bisnode RFP was to find a strong partner that could facilitate the need for efficient centralisation and standardisation of the purchasing process for PC and related ICT products across multiple European countries and regions.

In addition to supplying ICT equipment to every Bisnode location, the agreement is also a partner agreement with incentives to make continuously improvements.
Hans Erik Robbestad, Country Manager of Markit Norway is very optimistic of being able to offer Bisnode competence and experience of digitising procurement processes and improving Bisnode's terms and conditions for ICT purchasing.

“We chose Markit because we were looking for a supplier that could offer a high-quality service on an attractive range of products and combine that with a commitment to drive down our costs.” 
Markus Norrbom, Group Procurement Manager at Bisnode.

Markus added that, “Markit will also help us integrate our purchasing process with our operations, thereby minimizing Bisnode's internal administration and technical roll out costs. In addition, they will help us to harmonise our client computer landscape by pre-imaging and preparing for automated software distribution, thereby further reducing our costs. They will support our operations in all 19 countries, which is exactly the kind of service we are looking for from a supplier. The cooperation agreement is potentially open to other companies within the Ratos Group."
