Supply Chain and Procurement

PIP's procurement category savings average between eight to 12 per cent and in some categories reach 40 per cent.

Success in procurement is a combination of skill, experience, methodology, deep information, and commercial and operational savvy. Cost reduction is important, but not enough – and understanding impacts of supply on the operational economics, the importance of having a strong network of suppliers, and the value of a  world-class procurement system and team is also important in any procurement assistance you seek.

Our world-class procurement consultants bring these qualities to you, having decades of collective experience and amassed knowledge and Intellectual Property (IP). We transfer this throughout all engagements, coaching your team to sustain new processes and behaviours. This will ensure your procurement solution is not only effective but also sustainable in the long term.
