We can't wait to see you next week at the CUBO Conference, hosted by Swansea University


by Simona Hardy 27 June 2019

Whether your catering procurement challenges are financial, administrative or operational, come and talk them over with members of the Pelican team, Michelle Parnham and Simona Hardy, at CUBO's Summer Conference 2019.

We work in partnership with a number of universities and colleges including Keble CollegeUniversity of Birmingham, Queen Mary University of London,  St Hugh's College and Leeds Beckett University, to name but a few.

Working alongside your team, we use our bespoke in-house procurement services, system and in-depth industry experience to:

  • Deliver ongoing savings on all the items you buy for the whole duration of your contract

  • Dramatically reduce your team’s manual day-to-day administrative burden

  • Automate your internal processes - supplier payments, ordering, stock and menu management

  • Give you complete transparency over spend, and granular reporting across all outlets

  • Help you improve your product sourcing, innovation and supply chain management

  • Ensure you remain compliant with industry standards and legislation

  • Meet your sustainability goals

 

Here's what some of our existing clients say about working with Pelican:

“Following a bespoke tender, we have identified financial savings of 14% without impacting quality.  This is impressive when you consider we’d already been involved with a purchasing framework.”

Rahele Mirnateghi, Domestic Bursar, St Hugh’s College, Oxford

“We have essentially reduced the burden of manually processing 18,000 individual invoices a year, down to just 12 and have been able to redeploy the team of six people into different areas of the business.”

Nic Mander, Director of Catering, University of Birmingham

“We have achieved cost savings of 16% and suppliers are meeting our strict SLAs regarding delivery timeframes and overall quality. We can now track costs very easily – we log-on and track what is being spent and where.”

Nick French, Domestic Bursar, Keble College, Oxford


Find us on stand 34 - we look forward to seeing you in Swansea.
