Discover how to deliver unique value to your existing and prospective clients by efficiently achieving supply chain compliance with industry experts Gemma Lynch, VP of Strategic Accounts at Alcumus and Mark Hughes, Group Quality & Assurance Director at Mitie.



To compete effectively in the dynamic facilities management (FM) sector, organisations need to take a more proactive approach to identifying, controlling and limiting risks across the supply chain. As demand for FM services continue to pick up, and with a CAGR above 4.5% during 2022-2027, having the ability to deliver high-performing environments without compromising on safety, sustainability, or ethics is a must. 

76% of businesses operating in the property/facilities management sector are looking to improve how they manage supplier pre-qualification processes in the next two years.

Are you satisfied with the current way of evaluating, monitoring and managing your supply chain?
