Open ECX has teamed up with ECA (Electrical Contractors’ Association) to further support in the transformation of payment processes within the construction sector.
ECA supports and represents the UK construction industry (excluding Scotland) and is the nation’s leading trade association that represents the interests of businesses and organisations. With over 3,000 members and associates – including Open ECX customers such as NG Bailey and SSE, ECA has been a key player in the electrotechnical and engineering services industry since the association’s inception in 1901.
ECA continues to work on improving sector standards, supporting the industry and helping to push for a more sustainable business environment. Open ECX has become a member to engage with other partners, and to further support as they aim to drive improvements in construction.
Open ECX is one of the leading providers of cloud-based, e-trading solutions and work with some of the biggest names in the industry. Passionate about innovation and always looking for new ways to drive solutions into the future, Open ECX hope the partnership will allow them to further shape their ways of working.
Speaking on the partnership, Founder Matthew Jones, said: “We’re pleased to be working with ECA – it’s a valuable platform within the industry providing a new level of transparency and has strong benefits for members.
“Through our solutions, we support the industry in ensuring payments are made promptly and correctly – whilst taking away a layer of work for those usually involved. We make payment processes easier and more efficient, which goes hand in hand with what the ECA do.”
