We are delighted to announce the launch of our new ‘Store’ on 28th July 2019. The Store has been created to improve your experience when browsing, purchasing and authorising financial transactions through MKPDC. Examples of how the new Store will look can be downloaded, above. (Please note that the images are a 'mock up' for illustration only and do not reflect the services and products that will actually be offered when the system goes live). The Store will be accessed via a new tab from your MKPDC home page; once the Store is live this is where you will search for, and order from, our existing range of contracts, SLAs and adhoc services or request a bespoke quote.The Store has been designed to provide a familiar ordering experience consistent with other online shopping providers. New ‘user guides’ will be provided to ensure a smooth transition to the new Store, these will be produced in August and will be available on the MKPDC resource area.
