Our cost reduction solutions do not require organizational change but do improve organizational effectiveness. We provide cost savings for small, medium, and large companies.
Let's face it; most businesses have to have the cost vs. talent discussion eventually. Would you prefer to pay employees to focus on strategic business activities that drive customer growth or have them spend time negotiating with vendors and researching cost reduction ideas? We are compensated through the savings we provide, and if we don't offer any savings, then there is no fee. Where else would you find the opportunity to add staff and skillsets without adding to your payroll? Oh, and don't forget the additional funds you will have as a result of our services.
Every person is different, yet we each share similarities. The same can be said about companies; each business is unique but has similar operational structures. These similarities allow us to create business benchmarks in twenty different operational areas by industry, geolocation, and size.
We match your data against our industry benchmarks to help identify the areas of your business that hold the highest potential to provide cost savings. Once we know where to start, we gather additional details to confirm your business's specific savings opportunities and share the results with you. It is then up to you to decide if we implement our programs and services.
There is no risk to you or your business. All of our analyses are at no cost to you, so really, there is no excuse not to have us look and see what savings opportunities we can find.
We are not like other consulting firms; we only focus on solutions we know can be applied to all businesses. It is our job to make sure our solutions meet your needs if they don't, we won't waste your time recommending them. With that said, we feel each company will find value in our services.
Companies should consider our cost-containment approach as part of the strategic plan to deal with the aftermath of the pandemic. Unlike CARE Act stimulus funding these programs are not loans and do not require future payments.

Business Expense Reduction
Business profit margins varies from one business to the next, and by industry, for instance Walmart’s typical net profit margin is just around 3% and Apple’s net profit margin around 24%, but the average net profit margin in the U.S. is approximately 7.5%.
Let's say, a typical business with 50 employees has a net profit of approximately $525,000 ($7m x 7.5%). For this business to double its profit it could either double the sales of its products or services, which could also require doubling its workforce, and expanding its facilities, or it could simply reduce its expenses by 7.5%.
We help businesses obtain that 7.5% reduction in expenses by using the programs below.
Our business cost recovery services can help you recover overcharges from vendors and suppliers. Between 70-80% of all businesses are overpaying for the services they are receiving. In addition companies are unaware of the incentives or funds available to them.
Our team will help you find these incentives and negotiate better rates for your company. We work with your existing subject matter experts and are compensated only when we find savings, so we are incentivized to find ways to help you continuously save money.
Below are a few areas you may be overlooking with your existing cost reduction strategy.
