"JDP were appointed to manage the supplier selection process across our national retail refit programme (600+ retail units), incorporating pre-construction works through all stages to external signage. As a part of the strategic re-brand objectives for TUI, costs were significant with tight deadlines and a high profile marketing campaign to follow. JDP managed a professional and swift process to deliver savings in excess of £1m through expert category knowledge, proactive management of the commercial solutions and expert negotiations. Navigating the complexities of a huge retail portfolio of vastly differing shapes and sizes they were able to create a pricing solution that covered all brand concepts and delivered price certainty at competitive rates. Their ownership and facilitation of the supplier appointment process delivered everything we expected; they were easy to work with and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them."
Simon Walker, Head of Estates and Facilities Management, TUI UK and Ireland
"We have worked with JDP on many Procurement Projects across IT, Facilities, HR and Finance, and they have consistently delivered savings and efficiencies. They are extremely knowledgeable, I am yet to find an area of spend they haven’t worked on previously bringing market knowledge and category specific insights. Every Specialist and Project Manager that has worked as a part of the delivery team has demonstrated a real drive to innovate and deliver value. I have confidence that they can continually deliver optimal savings, but more importantly they make sure they are tangible, measurable and realised."
Paul Gilmour, Partner, Mazars LLP
"After a detailed trial and review process, we appointed JDP to help us initiate a much greater level of focus, control and vigour into our procurement processes. Since that time we have been very impressed with JDP and have extended our initial contract, using them as fully integrated and embedded members of our own team. They continue to deliver a high level of service, and results which have exceeded our expectations, and have successfully delivered procurement outsourcing of strategic and transactional procurement across a wide range of categories, in particular having reviewed full P2P processing and facilities management services. Amongst other added-value initiatives, they delivered a two-part Supplier Relationship training course which was extremely well received.JDP provide a proactive and conscientious service. They bring best practice guidance and deliver strong financial and service benefits to the firm to enable its sustained growth within the market and we would have no hesitation in recommending them."
Patrick Firebrace, Finance Director, DAC Beachcroft LLP
"JDP, our appointed Procurement Partner, have provided a flexible procurement solution that has adapted to the opportunities and varied profile of the firms within our network over the last few years. They have refined an overall service which they bespoke according to individual firms cost, service and quality requirements. We are happy to recommend JDP based on their professional approach and diligent stakeholder engagement, they consistently identify significant opportunities for costs saving, operational efficiencies and the delivery of ongoing value."
Clementine Hull, Compliance Officer, Quality Solicitors
"We previously engaged JDP with great success to review our Stationery contract and felt they would be able to reduce costs on another commodity based agreement, our PPE Workwear and Consumables contract, with the main objective being to reduce cost. JDP used their expertise alongside Galliford Try to produce the tender, run the bid and e-auction. This gave complete transparency for us as the Client as well as the Suppliers taking part and worked well to achieve the end goal. All objectives were met and we achieved a cost saving of circa 29%. When the right opportunity arises I will be looking to work with JDP to tender further commodities."
Simon Stone, Divisional Procurement Manager, Galliford Try PLC
“JDP Procurement Services worked with Worcestershire County Council as a part of its pilot "Commercial Mentoring" programme. They were very flexible and "can do" in their approach – in particular, they helped us by stepping in at very short notice to speak at our high profile launch event.Throughout the assignment, they combined knowledge and understanding of our local authority context with their wider commercial expertise and experience to direct and assist us as we established our Commercial Approach to Commissioning.”
Frances Kelsey, Commercial Commissioning Manager, Worcestershire County Council
“We have recently had the pleasure to work with JDP Procurement Services; they have assisted us with a tender for a substantial contract with our Local Authority. From the initial meeting to discuss the tender and its process we have been fully supported, their knowledge in the procurement process is second to none. JDP have guided and supported us thoroughly to enable us to achieve the correct responses required in the application. I have no hesitation in recommending JDP.”
