Expense Reduction Not for Profit & Charity Solutions

Not for Profit & Charity Solutions delivering Indirect & Supplier Cost Optimisation

Expense Reduction Analysts (ERA) has been supporting the charitable sector for over two decades. Each of our specialist consultants has an intrinsic understanding of the need to meet the regulatory, best practice and competitive needs of our clients, whilst preserving the integrity of their work and support services. Delivering value through insight, we offer strategic advice and practical methods to optimise supplier relationships, as well as internal systems and operational processes.

A nonprofit organisation relies on charitable contributions to support their mission.

Charitable contributions decrease in tough economic times, and these groups are vulnerable to shifts in the economy, even for nonprofits with substantial endowment funds. Managing expenses is also a primary concern for nonprofits.

Charitable organisations are often led by small but extremely competent teams who simply lack the time and resource to undertake complex, often niche, procurement work. Leveraging our specialist knowledge and experience, ERA become an extension of existing in-house teams. Real-time cost savings can often be reinvested and impact charitable efforts by alleviating fundraising pressures, whilst strategic procurement benefits clients in the present and protects them for the future.

City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra Case Study

“Having seen the savings Expense Reduction Analysts could achieve on Office Supplies and Print, I was happy to open up more areas to review.” Alistair Scott, Director of Finance, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. CBSO is dependent upon funding and sponsorship and for this reason it is deemed particularly important that expenditure be tightly controlled wherever possible. Alistair Scott, Director of Finance for CBSO comments, “I knew that any additions to the bottom line achieved through a profit improvement exercise could be used to fund artistic projects and I was particularly attracted to Expense Reduction Analysts proposition due to its self-funding, risk-free nature."

"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."

Simon Robinson, Head of Finance & Commerce, Canterbury Oast Trust
