Xoomworks helps BA e-procurement take off

Xoomworks collaborated with BA’s buyers and suppliers and quickly doubled the number of catalogues available to users. BA said: “We selected Xoomworks because they offered the best combination of technical expertise and an understanding of the business process and what needed to be done to drive change.”
