The Procurement Intelligence Unit (PIU) has been developed to help its members maximise the value procurement delivers to the business.
It does this by providing intelligent information services at both the Executive and Operational levels of the Procurement function, driving faster, smarter decision making, as well as continuous strategy development.
Core services include online daily market intelligence, strategic research and continuous improvement tools, in addition to a full programme of peer networking activities.
Services are available to corporate subscribers through a shared intelligence model, which focuses on common member priorities, or via a separate bespoke division, focusing on individual and sensitive client needs.
The PIU Model
The PIU Model focuses on two routes for maximising procurement value. On one axis, services support the pursuit and continuous development of procurement excellence, while on the second axis services focus on the provision of timely, expert market intelligence.
What It Provides
The PIU provides a central and easily accessible knowledge resource dedicated to corporate procurement professionals, at both the executive and operational levels.
It delivers timely and expert intelligence around a range of topics, from categories, to supplier markets and suppliers, emerging technologies and concepts, market trends and drivers, strategy development and the pursuit of procurement excellence. More info.
