The majority of Multi Academy Trusts are seeking to achieve financial savings across a number of areas and catering is one of the key areas where Pelican can help you.

Our CIPS-qualified procurement specialists and award-winning back-office systems help MAT’s achieve significant financial savings and operational efficiency, whilst ensuring you comply with public procurement and food related legislation. This is managed by bespoke tendering, consolidated centralised e-billing and purchasing, as well as full supply chain management.

Our professional procurement service is self-financed and our award-winning procurement system is complimentary to Pelican customers.

We currently support a number of MAT’s including Carmel Education Trust, Vale Academy Trust, STEP Academy Trust and Greenshaw Learning Trust.

Below are a links to some interesting case studies which demonstrate the challenges some of the MAT’S we work with faced and how our support services are helping them.

o   Vale Academy Trust“We are now saving an astonishing amount of time.”

o   Carmel Education Trust – “A major benefit has been the change in invoicing, instead of receiving individual invoices from suppliers we receive one single statement each month – the centralised invoicing is such a huge time-saver.”

o   Greenshaw Learning Trust – “We have achieved financial savings of over 26% without compromising quality.”

o   STEP Academy Trust – “Pelican have enhanced catering operation across the whole trust”
