About J6 Limited
Now based in Gateshead International Business Centre, J6 was founded in 1997 to provide innovative cost reduction services and procurement strategic solutions to large, medium and small organisations in both the public and private sectors.
Recognising our changing and evolving work environment, we have recently enhanced our in-house capabilities to develop online cloud based Software as a Service (SaaS) e-procurement systems to be used by private and public sector organisations. The System (Ordo Systems) bridges the gap between tendering and payment. J6’s objective is to maximise procurement efficiencies through the use of technology together with reduced purchasing cost using its aggregated buying power accumulated since it was established.
Now J6 Ltd with its in-house software capabilities is more effective than ever at delivering sustainable and continuous savings for you.
