We promise clarity and sustainability in procurement
Pinnacle Procurement is a Paisley-based, independent procurement company. Our specialists have over ten years of experience working with organisations to manage their business costs, resulting in adding real value and leading to an enhanced cashflow. We are dedicated to helping busy clients recover all aspects of their spend – time, money and effort – so that they can re-invest into more crucial areas of the business and improve their operational efficiency.
Working alongside our clients’ finance departments, we use our expertise to provide a clear understanding of their business’s overhead spend. We then focus on realising positive outcomes for future expenditure by regularly monitoring on-going costs and supplier relations to prevent any slippage that can occur.
Effective procurement goes beyond identifying short-term cost savings. A sustainable strategy focuses on adding real value, leading to an enhanced cashflow, more time and higher profits. When considering all options in the market, we can benchmark suppliers based on their performance, ability to innovate and whether the contracts align with your organisation’s specific goals.
We provide a detailed analysis of your company’s supply chain and current procurement process.
We begin with an initial health check of your organisation and assess your essential business costs. This is followed by identifying and reporting on any saving opportunities. We will also provide insight into how your company compares across industries to understand where you currently sit in the market, as well as identify critical strategies missing from your organisational design and if there are any risks within your supply chain.
Working with your operational teams to ensure that the suppliers we tender are the best for your business in terms of adding value and matching your future business strategy.
Using the insights we have gained from the business health check and the latest procurement technology, we can monitor and vet suppliers. This allows us to compare the competitiveness and quality of suppliers, before short-listing potential alternatives faster and with greater efficiency than if your organisation were to conduct this research independently.
Making our insights actionable and implementing an effective procurement strategy.
All our research and findings will be presented within a report, which details the fundamental factors for decision-making concerning procurement. Direct and indirect costs addressed within the report relate to a broad range of overheads, including:
- water & waste water
- premises costs
- human resources
- environmental & waste management
- fleet management
- other business cost areas
Once we have discussed and agreed upon cost-saving programmes and methods to improve operational efficiency, we will implement these changes.
Saving into the future and ensuring that your procurement strategy is sustainable.
As identified savings found during the tendering process are often eroded by various internal and external influences, we assist firms in looking for on-going savings opportunities and adjusting the procurement process where necessary.
