Further to my UK vendor trends update last week, I see Business Collaborator ‘s business continues to thrive. According to a Coda plc trading update:
“The Business Collaborator division has continued to grow across all areas of its business. Highlights include a new release (version 5.1) of the core Business Collaborator product. This has helped to secure new contracts such as with Westfield for the Stratford City project (currently the UK’s largest construction project) and has seen increased usage of our products and services throughout the customer base. There has also been a relaunch of the “WideXchange” Property Refurbishment software already deployed in the Nationwide Building Society; and further enhancements to Sedex (Suppliers’ Ethical Data Exchange) used by Tesco, M & S, Debenhams, John Lewis and other major retailers and suppliers. Sedex now has over 12,000 member sites worldwide and continues to grow at the rate of over 500 sites per month.”
No financial figures to analyse, but it sounds positive. As with other vendors’ non-collaboration products, I would be interested to know what proportion of BC’s turnover is attributed to Sedex.
