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.
