A ‘Shared Intelligence’ Approach


As a group, we create research that all our members can draw upon. We make sure that it’s relevant to your priorities – from executive issues, through to operational challenges and cross-sector spend categories.


This ‘shared’ model offers significant time and cost benefits, as it removes the vast duplication of effort across the procurement community to gather, analyse and disseminate information that underpins smart decision-making.


How the Community adds value


Our unique model puts the global procurement community at the heart of everything we do.

Reaching thousands of executives every year, our vast array of connection points gives us access to a unique source of credible, up-to-the-minute and independent data.


By interacting daily with the community, our team of in-house analysts keeps track of the most important trends, insights and techniques that will deliver added value for all our members. Use it in your own unique context to realise competitive advantage.
