the pams process

the process

We have designed PAMS in a way that encourages personal interaction between our procurement specialists and your people. We believe that in this way we can achieve a direct and better understanding of your particular needs and that a valued and trusting relationship will be developed between us.

Although we will develop our service to be supported by the latest in Information Technology, the cornerstone of our offering is that we are ‘hands on’ and, as such, we will never stop providing face-to-face contact as appropriate with dedicated and direct phone and email support.
