Food and Catering Focus
For any charitable organisation, ensuring that costs are tightly controlled is an essential part of its operations. For Canterbury Oast Trust (COT), whose life-changing work relies on the income generated by its various enterprises, the balance between delivering quality products and service and cost management is vital.
After meeting Client Relationship Managers, Nick Robinson and Simon Dodson, at a networking event, COT Chief Executive, Gill Gibb, was intrigued by the potential benefits that Expense Reduction Analysts (ERA) could bring. And so, she invited Nick and Simon to carry out a review.
Together with their team, Nick and Simon not only secured significant savings but reconnected COT with local supplier contacts resulting in improved service levels and protecting those all-important quality products.

"Having an independent third party like ERA review things for us has been extremely beneficial. No matter how good a job you’re doing internally, there will always be room for improvement – it’s just a matter of whether you have the time, resource and the in this case, the leverage, to achieve it. From the level of communication to the ongoing support; it’s been a success from start to finish and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Nick and his team to anyone.”
