Is Procurement a strategic partner in your organization?

Procurement has great potential to deliver so much more than savings in both value creation and risk mitigations. PIR has a structured approach to develop a strategy and governance for procurement to maximize its contribution to your business’s overall strategies and identify the development needed for the Procurement function in governance, processes, systems and expertise.

Based on over 1000 procurement projects, PIR has an incredible amount of experience of various procurement organizations’ ability to deliver results.

We support our customers in their transformation of organizational model and our approach is based on overall vision, mission and strategies and address how to develop the organizational model including role descriptions that best suits your business. An important component is to define interfaces with and forms of collaboration with other organizational units.

Does your Procurement organization have effective tools and the structure in place to be able to identify, deliver and realize savings?

Without appropriate processes and systems that support the entire purchasing process from savings identification through sourcing to contract management, call-offs, invoice management and payment, procurement will never be able to live up to its full potential. PIR has solid experience of analysis, design and implementation of efficient procurement processes and digitalization.
