Business model

@UK PLC identifies savings using SpendInsight, customers realise the savings using the e-commerce marketplace which is paid for via an annual fee.  Suppliers can trade with paying buyers free of charge, and then pay to be on the public marketplace.  The suppliers that pay generally have 10x sales vs equivalent free suppliers.  Suppliers pay for e-commerce sites via an annual fee.

The e-commerce sites are often market leaders in their sectors and @UK PLC uses its e-commerce system to sell company formations, domain names, email and its e-commerce system to start ups.  Only the company formation is a one off payment the other items are renewable annual fees.

The objective is to populate the e-commerce marketplace from the top down via e-procurement and bottom up via start ups.
