Amici first started working with this contract testing and development organisation in 2013, when it had grown steadily to 25 employees and was entering a period of rapid growth. A dramatic increase in secured business presented the need for an immediate expansion into additional laboratory space. Although the new laboratories were on the same site, they were in a different building.

Senior management were, therefore, concerned about cost implications, logistical confusion and maintenance of regulatory controls.


A very practical challenge concerned deliveries, with the potential for multiple people receiving several deliveries at the wrong location. Clearly satisfactory control of paperwork and maintenance of sample storage requirements were critical. Relationships with customers demanded an ability to demonstrate accurate, secure systems.


Following a demo of the Amici platform, our client was confident that Amici could provide the solution. Initially, we implemented our full ePO-to-Pay suite which gave them;

  • Immediate access to our negotiated prices with our core ePO module.
  • Fully-managed orders with our Delivery module.
  • Consolidated deliveries which saved on shipping costs with our Consolidation module.
  • Visibility of all spend with our Self-Serve module.
  • Paperless three-way matching of invoices with our Finance module.

In 2015, our client added the Stock Controls module to assist with managing optimum stock levels together with health and safety controls.

Our Asset and Inventory modules were added in 2016 and our client now has visibility of all assets and the ability to track live inventory across all its UK sites.

At that time, the company also established a US subsidiary in Boston and the Amici ePO to Pay portfolio of services was implemented to allow integration with the UK parent company.


This year (2019) we will be implementing our new Quality and Sample modules at its UK sites, where direct savings on consumable and equipment continue at a rate of over £500k per annum, not to mention the thousands of hours saved and headaches avoided!

Amici has negotiated prices with over 8,000 suppliers. Our fees are calculated as a percentage of the savings we make you. No saving, no fee!
