The Procurement Intelligence Unit (PIU) helps organisations by delivering independent, consolidated, expert analysis supporting informed, time and cost-effective sourcing decisions.
Services have been developed to support members' information and transformation needs, ranging from multiple topic-specific studies and analysis through to group networking activites and continuous improvement tools.
A focus on shared member priorities ensures efficiency and knowledge sharing, while a unique capability to support custom requirements focuses yet further on members own unique contexts.
Utimately the PIU brings together the expertise of in-house analysts, associates, members and industry leaders to maximise procurement decision-making, efficiency, alignment and value.
Membership is open to global organisations wishing to improve their operational effectiveness in procurement, sourcing and supply chain management. As information is provided at both an executive (focusing on what to do and why to do it) and operational level (focusing on how to do it), services are relevant to professionals at all levels of the procurement enterprise.
The PIU operates an annual subscription service where corporate subscribers access services and content through a fully customisable website and via a programme of face-to-face and online peer learning activities.
A corporate-wide, secure login ensures access is available across the procurement organisation for all relevant stakeholders, 24 hours a day.
The depth of analysis and detailed focus of reports, studies and events ensures that PIU services meet the high-level needs of executives across the entire procurement organisation, including CPOs, directors, general managers, category managers and buyers.
In addition to delivering value to the procurement team, key stakeholders from across the business, including finance, operations and marketing can also access and utilise PIU services to understand key concepts, challenges and topics.
