The core philosophy is to achieve cost reductions without compromising quality, service and purchase; most clients experience a noticeable improvement to their procurement processes and understanding of how to achieve effective procurement within their employees.
Benefits to BRC members
This partnership offers multiple benefits to BRC Members; Expense Reduction Analysts’ extensive knowledge provides considerable power when negotiating with suppliers to ensure that clients receive the best prices and the best quality of service, whilst being a completely independent third party, free from any kind of influence from suppliers. Expense Reduction Analysts main objective is to do what is right for the client and these are the strict terms on which strong working relationships have been formed with suppliers. Smarter Spending is based on improving procurement: getting maximum value for money spent on goods not for re-sale, as opposed to simply cutting costs which will inevitably result in a lower quality of service and reoccurring problems.
Key benefits of working with Expense Reduction Analysts:
- Best Value - Due to the way in which we share and build on all knowledge we acquire during each cost and purchase review, we are able to obtain better arrangements than in-house procurement departments.
- Buying Power - Our extensive knowledge gives us considerable power when negotiating with suppliers to ensure that clients receive best prices and the best quality of service, both now and in the long term.
- Independence - Whilst we are an influential force within the supply chain, we are free from any kind of influence from suppliers. We do not accept commissions or any financial reward from any supplier at any time, always working in the best interest of our clients. We vigorously protect this independence.
- Bespoke Solutions - Additionally everything we do for a client is bespoke to the specific needs of that client – we simply do not lock clients into pre-arranged national pricing arrangements, nor are we part of any buying consortium.
- Strong Supplier Relationships - Our only objective is to do what is right for our client and these are the strict terms on which we have been able to forge strong working relationships with suppliers and service providers alike.
