‘Inspect and Save’

Systematically and forensically inspecting and identifying areas of risk, reducing costs, and ensuring financial and delivery focus

PML has been working in partnership with clients and service providers to systematically and forensically reduce the cost of maintenance programmes for in excess of 20 years. By inspection of existing contracts for one client, we found and corrected 9000 jobs. We provided £8 of savings for every £1 spent, and increased process efficiency by 15. Our work is self-funding and also reduces risk whilst increasing customer satisfaction

Audit and Review

What processes do you have in place in order to identify not only the risks throughout your project, but their severity and priority as well? PML have designed a process called ‘Inspect & Save’ to suit the housing sector, that will find and eliminate substandard work; saving money on every £1 spent. Continuous monitoring can ensure directional development for the coming years

PML Involvement

By analysing current methods and key aspirations through all areas of your business, PML will identify areas of change and risk, and develop and implement customised solution tactics to monitor and manage future delivery. Equipped with Tablet/App Technology through to on site video capture, reports are available the same day for each visit made and action plans created, implemented and managed to suit your requirements. In turn, your future customer focuses will be able to be monitored appropriately

Specific requirements and areas of key focus will be addressed through the initial consultation

Sustainable Process Re-Engineering

This is a business management strategy that will help you to analyse and design a sustainable business model. By building and planning clear, collaborative and well-structured contractor relationships and up-skilling your teams, we can raise performance and your company appeal within the market place

PML Involvement

Sustainability is the conscious and proactive use of methods that leave a positive impact on the environment around you. Through managing and delivering a systemic onsite programme, PML will show you how to rectify any past mistakes, reduce or eliminate current problems, and build legacies for the future, while re-educating minsets. We will provide the opportunity to find and identify areas for improvement, and deliver a universal onsite checking programme in order to eliminate substandard work and challenge fraud; simultaneously increasing your company or brand profile and generate further business growth

Tackling Fraud

An increasingly competitive market place has encouraged us all to empower our staff and undertake structural reforms. Ironically, these changes, combined with the ability to undertake more financial transactions remotely, have also created more fertile conditions, scope and opportunity for dishonest action

PML Involvement

By identifying and challenging fraud, our investigations have a 15:1 Return on Investment, enabling up to a 75% reduction in works expenditure, and clearer ways of monitoring staff productivity and financial responsibility throughout the duration of any existing and future contracts undertaken, thus adapting your business methods to ensure increased and maintained levels of efficiency. We will perform a Fraud Risk Assessment to identify and address vulnerabilities to fraud within your business, and develop a fraud risk response. This can be adapted to any area of the business, such as purchasing, payroll and expense schemes, theft and corruption, and the controls that you can put in place for future security

Specific requirements and areas of key focus will be addressed through the initial consultation

Governance

Governance can be thought of as: ‘the systems and processes concerned with ensuring the overall direction, effectiveness, supervision and accountability of an organisation’

PML Involvement

From CRB (Criminal Records Bureau) and CTC (Counter Terrorism Check) to Health and Safety accreditation; from ICT resilience to legislative requirements, you and your tenants can be assured of our credentials. We will provide guidance to ensure compliance across your contractual list of requirements, understanding of all roles at all levels, the delivery of organisational purpose, the importance of integrity and being open and accountable. Our assistance will enable you to assess the strength and weaknesses of the governance structure within your organisation, and identify the areas in need of change and improvement for your business to become more effective in creating value and sustainability in the long-term
