The UK Council for Electronic Business (Ukceb) is seeking to spread efficient e-business in the manufacturing and engineering industries with its strategic assessment tool, e-BAT.

The e-BAT software provides a comprehensive structure, data collection facility and more than 10,000 words of cross-industry best practice benchmarking, to enable a firm to develop a business-to-business strategy.

Ukceb offers the tool as part of a one-day workshop, where consultants help firms evaluate their business drivers and the implementation of e-business in their supply chain.

After the workshop, organisations are provided with an auditable report and a prioritised action plan for forming an e-business strategy.

Dr Norman Schofield, a director of Ukceb, said that the tool offered an independent and structured way of assessing ways of conducting e-business.

The software was developed with the Department of Trade and Industry, Marconi, Rolls-Royce and BAE Systems. Ukceb intends to develop it further for both horizontal and vertical business strategy needs.
