Profile: Alastair Blenkin, Procure Pro

Meet Alistair Blenkin, founder and CEO of Procure Pro and a specialist in digital procurement and subcontract management!

Launched out of Brisbane in April of 2020 due to Alistair’s experiences with dated contracting practices, Procure Pro is now pioneering change in subcontractor management to optimise efficiency in a highly manual, time-consuming and expensive process.  

Alastair has described Word, Excel and email as weapons of choice in contracting and something that has been constraining the contracting process. However, through digitisation and real-time metrics in procurement performance, Procure Pro is redefining the ease of contracting through one easy to use platform that provides construction companies all the information they need to find their ideal candidate.

Accordingly, Procure Pro has been welcomed into the construction industry by consolidating the commercial aspects of construction into a single platform where construction teams can compare, select and approve subcontractors at the click of a button.  

With their innovative technology making waves, we spoke to Alastair about what makes him tick and future plans for his business.  

What’s your favourite thing about what you do?

Denting the universe! It takes courage, energy and recklessness against overwhelming odds of failure for people to create something out of nothing. I love the camaraderie of a small & growing team working together to solve a big problem and improve people's work lives.

What’s next on the agenda for Procure Pro?

Scale - we've proven there's a market demand for what we're doing, that our product solves a real problem and customers are willing to pay. Now it's all about making that happen at scale, both in Australia and globally!

What are you looking forward to most about Thriday?
