FINALISTS: Partners Across Borders category
Mace Macro with Invesco:
Mace Macro (Macro) began its relationship with Invesco, one of the world’s leading independent global investment managers, in 2004. Initially engaged to provide FM support services in the UK, Macro has evolved into a strategic partner by expanding its role in the management of sub-contractors and additional services. In 2009, Macro took over the FM of Invesco’s offices in Europe and the United States. Macro now provides FM services for Invesco throughout Europe, including Paris, Brussels, Milan, and Madrid. Before Macro’s involvement, the quality of service varied from location to location, but now these staff have been incorporated into Macro and professionally supported. Macro has brought Invesco, standardisation of process and service, management of the supply chain, flexibility in operation, cost reductions amounting to over £3m, centralised finance including true open book, commitment based accounting, reducing transactional costs with invoices reduced from 70-80 to just one. Macro has also benefitted by the development of an infrastructure to support other multi-national clients.
SMI with JLL: Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) has been providing over the years truly global solutions to multinational clients across the world. In EMEA, JLL has focused primarily in delivering complex regional solutions to corporate occupier clients. Service Management International (SMI) has played a major role in supporting JLL and client’s overall goals and objectives when transforming complex multi-geography portfolios. The global best practices, technology and specialist management brought by JLL combined with depth of local service delivery, geographic reach and scale brought by SMI’s shareholders combine to create a high value-add portfolio solution with in-built flexibility to effectively manage change.
This model brings best in class management and delivery solution, high savings yield for clients through collective commitment to continual cost reduction, attractive employers' and career paths for transferring staff, flexible and adaptable to changing market, low overheads and infrastructural costs and local knowledge, cultural alignment and acceptance.
Sodexo with Procter & Gamble: In 2004, Sodexo began working with P&G to explore ways to reduce costs by improving systems and services, simplifying processes, and leveraging scale. P&G was looking for a facilities provider that could leverage experience and expertise globally to allow plant managers to focus on core priorities. P&G selected Sodexo to deliver soft services at three sites. The success at these test sites led to an agreement for all European P&G plants. Success was accomplished thanks to a best-inclass transition driven by a global roll-out structure and strong governance. One of the relationship structure’s key strengths was that it facilitated interaction at all levels of both the P&G and Sodexo organizations which in turn supported the understanding of critical global objectives and local buy-in. The European/EMEA region has been expanded to include 24 live plants in nine countries with additional plants scheduled to transition this year. Since the start of the EMEA roll out, Sodexo has been awarded soft and hard services in the Americas and a number of Asian countries.
