CIS Launches Global E-procurement Service

6th September 2011

Craig International Supplies (CIS) a division of the Craig Group is launching ebuy - a bespoke electronic procurement service.

The Aberdeen head-quartered oilfield procurement company is confident the new service will help increase the company’s turnover while deriving major efficiencies for its customers, some of the world’s leading oil companies and drilling contractors.

By using the system for all their orders of oilfield equipment and services CIS’ clients can dramatically reduce paperwork and administration as well as cutting down on delivery times.

Following a trial period where the technology was tested and analysed for user-friendliness and accessibility, the bespoke web-based tool is now live and available to the CIS’ global client base.

CIS provides products, equipment and services to the global energy industry and is recognised as the largest privately owned European procurement and supply house operating in the oil and gas industry.

The company employs more than 50 staff at three strategic locations around the globe – Aberdeen, Houston and Cape Town.

“E-procurement is coming into its own as business and industry look for quicker, more flexible ordering systems that are easy to manage, available 24 hours a day and provide a flexibility that can prove critical when organisations are working to quick turnarounds  and tight deadlines. We are making a concerted effort to align ourselves with global trends in e-business and we are confident that moving ahead with this brand new ordering system will provide an even better service to our clients.”

CIS has a £35 million turnover and provides an extensive range of products and services to the global energy industry and has a buying power approaching £3 million per month.  As a result it passes on significant savings to its customers, creating competitive advantage.

With bases in Aberdeen, Cape Town and Houston, the company is well placed to provide complete global coverage to an international client base.
