ARCUS® has been designed and evolved by working with organisations operating in the utilities industry. This has helped us to address some of the major pain points professionals face across multiple departments, including procurement, sustainability, supply chain and technical, when sourcing suppliers and products to meet existing and future needs, whilst delivering proven reassurance of reliability and ease of deployment for Chief Technology Officers / IT professionals.
Our proprietary, cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS) ARCUS® platform is fast to deploy, simple to use and is delivered in a modular format that can be used in any combination or stand-alone. The central document database removes the need for disparate, stand-alone systems. All the information is stored in the central database which enables all stakeholders and relevant professionals to access the data at any time (based on company driven access levels) and removes silos of information. ARCUS® is used by multiple departments across the globe in some of the largest organisations in the world, such as Drax Power, SSE, Sodexo, Costa Coffee and Premier Inn and can be integrated into internal systems as required.

"Thanks to ARCUS® eAUC, our procurement team has adopted reverse eAuctions across a range of categories. By incorporating eAuctions as part of our category management toolkit, this has resulted in Drax realising cost savings over and above traditional procurement methods, while reducing the time we spend negotiating with suppliers. The eAuction tool from Trade Interchange is a low-cost solution to leverage spend across common categories of spend across Drax.”Matthew Walker MCIPS, Supplier Relationship Manager – Turbines & Major Projects, Drax Power

Drax Power, who runs Europe’s biggest biomass-fuelled power station, used to manage their supplier service and product auctions using a combination of spreadsheets and paper-based systems.
This meant that auctions were not configured in a standardised format and information was difficult to locate, leading to inefficiencies within the procurement department.
They now run eAuction events using ARCUS® eAUC, a cloud-based module that encourages competitive online negotiations, leading to reduced procurement costs and improved visibility throughout the negotiation process.
Thanks to the cloud-based nature of ARCUS® eAUC, Drax Power now has the capacity to negotiate with more suppliers on a global scale and on a real-time basis.
