Our partner Expense Reduction Analysts (ERA) can help organisations save money and boost business performance through effective procurement, improved supplier management and smarter spending behaviours.
ERA offers strategic advice and practical methods which optimise supplier relationships and use their experience from specialists to advise businesses on how to get the best deal from suppliers. They stay with their clients for the long term, conducting regular invoice audits. This ensures that they maximise the savings we identify and keep prices in check for the long term.
