The first of 600 registered educational institutions have already been onboarded


Breukelen, the Netherlands – November 2, 2021 at 8 AM CET – TIE Kinetix, a leader in 100% supply chain digitalization, announced today that the Dutch Employee Insurance Agency (UWV) has successfully deployed FLOW Partner Automation to facilitate electronic ordering and invoicing with more than 600 educational institutions participating in the government-backed subsidy program, STAP. 

Set to launch in January 2022, the Learning and Development Budget Subsidy Scheme for the Stimulation of the Labor Market Position (STAP) will enable job-seeking Dutch citizens to apply for subsidies to attend training courses at participating institutions. In partnership with NLeyes, a leader in e-procurement and e-delivery, TIE Kinetix’s cloud-based supply chain platform, FLOW, will facilitate a highly automated ordering and invoicing process to support the program’s execution. 

“The UWV STAP portal is ready to go!” says Arjan Sloot, Country Manager Benelux, TIE Kinetix. “We’re excited to have successfully onboarded the first of many educational suppliers, and we’re looking forward to the official program launch in January.”   

Thanks to the dedicated STAP portal powered by FLOW, UWV, participating educational suppliers, and course registrants will benefit from seamless and timely transactions. This will significantly minimize the need for support following the program launch, resulting in fewer delays and a positive experience for all those involved.
