Spend Matters 50/50: PwC – A Provider to Know in 2015

100 companies - 100 days

 

PwC is one of the silent giants of the operations consulting world. Its reputation is not as well known as it should be in the area of direct procurement, given all the resources it has at its disposal. Just over four years ago, PwC completed its acquisition of PRTM, the granddaddy of supply chain consulting firms. PRTM brought significant expertise to PwC, particularly in the areas of procurement most closely related to the supply chain — planning, logistics, direct procurement and product innovation and development...

Many of the practice leads, at least within North America, continue to carry on the PRTM reputation of rich industry experience and tenure. Unlike other Big Five firms, which have plenty of senior managers and consultants in their thirties and early forties, many from the PRTM side have considerably more experience, and some – unlike many in consulting – came into the profession later in their careers. We encourage Spend Matters readers to keep a close eye on PwC.

You can read more on PwC on our US website here. In Europe, the PRTM connection carries less significance, but PwC continues to be a very strong player in the supply chain and procurement consulting space. That includes both public and private sector, and the firm will rightly be on the shortlist for many significant projects, from high-level strategy to hands on operational improvement.
