    About us

    Specialist supply chain management and procurement software with a key focus on the construction industry

    Local Supply Chain was launched in 2016 with the support of many well-known contractors, such as Morgan Sindall, GFTomlinson, Lindum and Wates.

    The platform was developed by CEO Richard Ratcliffe to meet a need across the UK’s construction industry for software to manage all project management processes in one place.

    Our early clients used the platform for sourcing subcontractors for construction projects across the East Midlands and we gained some 3,000 sub-contractor registrations within the first 12 months.

    As usage increased we introduced new features for our clients, including the sharing of pipeline projects, issuing and receiving PQQs and enquiries, performing awards and providing feedback.

    Our clients and partners

    We work with an increasing number of leading organisations across the public and private sectors, with our software helping clients ranging from self-employed tradespeople to multi-national construction companies.

    Today, our platform has attracted over 10,000 active users and manages more than £3bn of projects and procurements.
