According to John Baker, Country Manager, the approval will help Automatic Systems carry out contracts more quickly and easily Automatic Systems, a world leader in the automation of secure entrance control, announces that it is now Constructionline approved. Constructionline is the UK's leading procurement and supply chain management service that collects, assesses and monitors standard company information through a question set that is aligned to PAS 91, the standardised pre-qualification questionnaire developed by BSI to reduce duplication within the construction industry. Improving the supply chain Its aim is to provide efficiency savings to public and private sector buyers and the construction industry as a whole by streamlining procurement procedures and improving the supply chain management processes by reducing risk, creating cost efficiencies and helping buyers engage with new suppliers, including SMEs and local companies. Constructionline means that we no longer need to repeatedly duplicate our standard company information for every construction tender. What's more, with over 8,000 procurement professionals from over 2,500 buying organisations already using the Constructionline database to source contractors and consultants, Constructionline is a great tool to market our business. "This is yet another step forward for our company in making it easier for us to tender for jobs and become approved to carry out our contracts more quickly and easily”, John Baker, Country Manager Automatic Systems UK & Ireland.
