Are you considering losing a few pounds in the New Year?

With reductions in overhead costs going directly to the bottom line, for most businesses a pound saved on overheads has the same effect on profitability as a four pound increase in sales. But 59% of businesses will not review suppliers until there is a problem. Is it time to take a more proactive approach…

Profitability and efficiency are at the heart of every organisation. Put simply, the best way to boost your bottom line is to sell more or spend less – or both.

Effective procurement is crucial but often neglected – either outsourced to brokers or handled by a range of in-house staff, who are often ill equipped to handle the necessary selection of suppliers and negotiation of prices and terms. But used as a strategic function, with full support from the boardroom, procurement can deliver enterprise-wide benefits.

ERA is a network of Procurement Experts operating in the UK and globally, enabling clients to save money and boost business performance through effective procurement, improved supplier management and smarter spending habits.

ERA experts look to build long-term relationships with medium to large enterprises, which go way beyond short-term gains to deliver objective analysis, informed market expertise and continued financial benefits.

“I was a little sceptical at first so we allowed ERA to explore a couple of areas, in both of which we were pleasantly surprised at the savings they achieved. This provided the confidence to engage ERA on a number of other categories. The contingency fee model meant that there was no risk for us; if there was no saving to be made, we didn’t pay any fees” – FD- Ercol Furniture Ltd.

ERA can demonstrate average savings in the region of 20% in a wide range of cost categories from office supplies to waste disposal. Achieved without damaging service levels or quality. And often whist retaining the existing supplier.

North West based Associate Alastair Baker says

“I would be delighted to have a discussion with any McLintocks’ client, we can generally add value to any business ( or charity, trust or public sector organisation) with annual overheads in excess of about £1m.”
