NEP partners with Pagero. We are pleased to announce that NEP Shared System Group (NEP) has entered into an agreement to partner with the Pagero Group to provide PEPPOL services for its member organisations. NEP is an NHS Consortium providing infrastructure and services for 38 NHS organisations.
NEP’s decision to partner with Pagero is based on their extensive capability and proven track record with PEPPOL, being one of the largest providers of this service in the business. Pagero has a strong healthcare pedigree and long-standing experience of working with healthcare suppliers and hospitals.
Christine Hall, Associate Programme Director explains the decision: “The Pagero partnership provides NEP members with a reliable, sophisticated and globally proven electronic trading platform using the PEPPOL network, which will be integral to the NEP Cloud ERP. Together, NEP and Pagero will provide a fully electronic and PEPPOL compliant service for our member organisations. This allows NEP to continue to drive efficiencies for our members, knowing that our partnership with Pagero will allow our members to meet the PEPPOL and Scan4Safety objectives of the NHS.”
When asked about the partnership, Anna Micklewright, Global Head of Sales for Pagero’s Healthcare division stated: “We are delighted that NEP has chosen to partner with Pagero to deliver PEPPOL services. Pagero has experience in the implementation of PEPPOL in multiple countries and we have worked with hospitals and the major suppliers to the healthcare industry for many years. We are very excited to be part of one of the first PEPPOL roll-outs outside the pathfinder cohort and look forward to delivering efficiencies back to both the healthcare organisations and the healthcare suppliers who serve them.”
