QS Gleeds has formed an alliance with Building Information Warehouse, an application service provider, to create a European-wide web-based procurement and project management system.

Gleeds will deploy the system in its offices throughout Europe, and promote web-based supply chains and management to clients as a means of saving money and avoiding language barriers.

Gleeds chairman Richard Steer said: "The fact that it is already up and running means that clients can take advantage of the service now".

Construction manager Schal is one of the companies already using a version of the e-business platform.
