CIP has considerable experience in providing our clients with a bespoke operation either within their offices or based within our own operation. In line with this philosophy, we design our Project Teams to be flexible and adaptable so that all support staff can operate and perform, either on a semi or permanent basis, In-House, Onsite, or wherever the project may require. This enhances performance, efficiently manages periods during peak times, cements the relationship between the two companies and removes all communication issues between all parties involved in the Project.

The flexible role of the Project Team will allow them to be based either In-House at the Client Office or at the Head Office of CIP or at any facility, as required by the specific needs of the project. The Project Team has the crucial responsibility of accurately compiling, filing, and transmitting all data-related project material and bringing to the attention of the Project Manager all information and material that is relevant to the smooth and efficient running of the Project.

CIP places considerable emphasis on our global communications and purchase order data-reporting capabilities. One of our key logistic processes is an advanced material management tracking system (Web Tracker) which is a web-based stand-alone resource which can operate either independently or can be interfaced with our clients’ materials management, procurement and logistics systems on an event-to-event and day-to-day basis.

Our support network of own offices, representative offices, affiliate companies and specialist agents located worldwide, demonstrated within our regional organisation procedures, highlight our commitment to service coverage on a worldwide basis.
