Cost Reduction & Savings
We love to help our small to medium-sized business and nonprofit clients reduce costs on a contingency basis. We systematically review all vendors, contracts, processes, and systems to ensure your costs are in line with best practices without reducing headcount. Most organizations are not experts in cost optimization. We are and can help immediately! We improve your vendor relationships while ensuring you get the best price for just the services you need.
Here are a few categories that our partner organization specializes in:
Telecom, Internet, VOIP, & Wireless
Analysis, vendor, contracts, and invoice review. We assure you get the best service level and hardware at the lowest prices. We have gotten many of our clients better cell phones, reduced contract fees, and employee discounts. Are you a candidate for a simple version of Unified Communications, VOIP, or just a wireless review? Let's review where you are and where you want to be. We can then advise on communication technology.
Financial, Accounting, & Insurance
Software, processes, tools, sources of funds, training, and services review. We assure that you are using the right people to do the right tasks in the right way to reduce your financial services, banking, CPA, and legal fees. We review with our Alternative Financing experts your loans, capital, investments, and cash flow. Frequently, we reduce costs by inserting a layer between you and your CPA and Legal firms. If you are not using bookkeeping services, we analyze the lowest cost for local or remote, secure, cost-effective services. We also ensure your accounting structure is optimized to take advantage of all deductions for needed expenses. For Insurance, we review your current coverages to best practices to drive down your costs and increase your coverage where advisable.
Staffing, Temp, Interim, Project-based, or Employee
Let's ensure you have the right blend of consistent, on demand, outsourcing, contractors, and employee review. We help optimize your 'mix' of internal and external resources and that they are all working on the right level and responsibility for tasks and results. We audit your contractors to help avoid government fines, more taxes on wages, and re-categorizing as employees.
