International Transport Workers’ Federation Case Study

"Working with ERA has been very beneficial. There are no negatives really; they do exactly what they say on the tin and they do it with the minimum impact on our time. I’d definitely recommend their services." Neil Richardson, IT Service Desk Engineer, ITF. Poor service, incredibly lengthy call-out response times and ever increasing costs saw global union federation, ITF, at the end of its tether with its photocopy supplier. Head of Systems and ICT, Samantha A’Boe, reached out to Expense Reduction Analysts (ERA) for assistance. An in-depth project unearthed massive overcharges, which were subsequently refunded, and saw ITF transition to a new, better fit supplier with industry leading service levels and account management. The cost savings on the new contract were very much an added bonus!
