Expense Reduction

Our partner ERA (Expense Reduction Analysts)  can help organisations save money and boost business performance through effective procurement, improved supplier management and smarter spending behaviours.

 
ERA offers strategic advice and practical methods which optimise supplier relationships and use their experience from specialists to advise businesses on how to get the best deal from suppliers. They stay with their clients for the long term, conducting regular invoice audits. This ensures that they maximise the savings they identify and keep prices in check for the long term

ERA Help to:

Improve internal processes

Manage supplier relationships

Benchmark prices

Conduct tendering exercises



ERA goes far beyond seeking just short-term savings and the limitations of in-house teams to deliver long-term financial and efficiency benefits. Their expertise spans over 100 supply areas from services such as communications, logistics and waste/recycling management, to operational costs such as facilities management, packaging and machine maintenance.

 


ERA is a global team of thinkers and doers. It means they’ll find opportunities that others couldn’t.

 

Ask the following questions of your business. If you aren’t sure of even one of the answers, ERA can help.

 

  1. What are the pressures at play in your organisation to better manage costs? Are targets imposed on you by (external forces) or are they self-generated?

 

  1. Could you outline what has been done in recent times to manage your overhead costs more efficiently? What initiatives have been taken?

 

  1. How does the purchasing function operate in your organisation? For example, is it centralised? Do you have preferred supplier agreements? Are contracts in place?

 

  1. How do you benchmark your purchasing performance? Where do you believe your organisation’s purchasing strengths lie?
