Creating social value by helping local businesses thrive

Oxygen’s Payment and Insights solutions deliver for local communities by helping firms win more business and get paid more quickly by the public sector.

Firms can use Oxygen’s solutions to help them do better business. Oxygen helps suppliers get paid by the government faster for the services they provide, improving their cash flow. We also run private sector early payment programmes for enterprise organisations who want to fulfil their ESG commitments and generate an additional income stream. As running out of cash is the top reason why businesses fail, our early payment programmes help businesses survive and thrive, creating new jobs and delivering social value to the community.

We also give firms public sector market intelligence on how local government and the emergency services spend their money – procurement data on where, how and with whom, fuelling new business activity.

“Finally, a tool with everything the team needs in one place…

The tool alerts us to organisations in the ‘sweet spot’ for procurement and has helped us to be more strategic in our approach. Ultimately, it’s given us a huge competitive advantage.”
