What if I don’t have time or looking for cost savings isn’t a priority?
We understand you may be short on time and undoubtedly have lots of priorities to deal with. That’s why partnering with ERA is so beneficial, as we provide all of the time and resource needed to deliver our successful cost optimization projects, thanks to our network of more than 700 consultants. There is no time commitment needed from you or your team, meaning you can continue to focus on the other key areas of your business.
What does “No On-Going Time Commitment” mean?
At the start of a new relationship with ERA we will want to spend some time with you to ensure we fully understand your needs and your business, whilst also handling any questions or requests you may have. These initial meetings will of course require some time however, once they are dealt with our teams are able to move forward without imposing prohibitive time requirements on you, meaning you and your team are able to focus on the other key priorities of your business whilst we work in the background.
What does “No Savings, No Fee” actually mean?
In addition, we work on a “No Savings, No Fee” basis, meaning if we cannot find any savings, then you don’t pay anything. Furthermore, our fees come entirely from the savings we generate, so you don’t need any budget to work with us as there are no up front fees.
We can’t afford to work with external consultants
You don’t need any budget to work with us as there are no up front costs and our fees come entirely from the savings we generate. Our “no savings, no fee” approach also means that if we cannot find any savings, you don’t pay anything.
Do we have to change supplier(s)?
We regularly deliver successful cost saving projects without the need to change suppliers. In most cases incumbent suppliers remain in place, but with better terms/services/prices.
Even if you feel your costs are under control, listen to our clients explain why ERA is relevant to you
The mind-set of many organisations is that providing their suppliers are meeting the service and quality levels required to maintain operations and their overall spend is within budget parameters, that everything is working well, as senior decision makers can often feel their costs are relatively under control and managed to a satisfactory level.
But what if your spend is actually significantly higher than the true market rate? Without external validation of pricing and service level arrangements, it’s impossible to know. Our independent analysis ensures you are receiving best value and not wasting money through unnecessary over payment in any area of spending.
ERA has been delivering sustainable cost savings to businesses around the world for more than 25 years. Our network of more than 700 consultants have completed thousands of successful projects, resulting in more cash and better services for our clients.
