About Trade Interchange

The company was founded in the UK with an initial focus on fully-managed eAuctions. Since then, we have added more modules to our proprietary ARCUS® software, meaning that all initial tenders, negotiation, sourcing projects, product information, new product development, supplier information, contracts and performance management can be performed in one streamlined solution.

The ARCUS® platform is delivered in a modular format that can be implemented standalone, in any combination or in any order, and supports many prestigious blue-chip clients around the world. ARCUS® Connect, our native API, allows integration with other solutions, ensuring all information can be shared across systems, eliminating the need to re-key data.

Fast to deploy and simple to use, the software is developed in our head office in Teesside, and supports many leading brands including Sodexo, Fridays, Domino’s Pizza, AAK, Whitbread, and Circle Healthcare.

Meet our Directors



Co-Founder & Managing Director

I’m Mike, the Managing Director, and in 2001 I co-founded Trade Interchange and developed ARCUS®, our Supplier Management Software, back then we mainly focused on eSourcing, but ARCUS® has grown to encompass a range of supplier management activities and form a full source-to-contract solution.

I have over 20 years’ experience in IT, but in 2016, I became the Managing Director of Trade Interchange, and as part of my role I oversee software, product, and operation delivery, and drive the company towards achieving its vision, to deliver supply base confidence through a streamlined solution through an innovative, quality product, and become the best at what we do!



Co-Founder & Director

I’m Andy, and I’m a Co-founder and Director of Trade Interchange! Prior to the conception of Trade Interchange, I spent over 20 years working in the food industry after university, even setting up my own seafood import and export business, followed by several years as the International Trading Director of a multinational food company. This has equipped me with strong knowledge of the food industry, especially in the procurement area.




Hi, I’m Mike, non-executive Chairman of Trade Interchange. My role is to work with my fellow directors to help them determine and then deliver the growth strategy of the business.

Outside of work, you’ll often find me on the golf course (usually in the rough!) or spending time with my wife and our two children at our home in Cheshire.
