Expense Reduction Coaching is Booming
Expense Reduction Coaching® (ERC), pioneered the expense reduction industry back in 1993, as the first company to offer our services on a contingency basis, focusing on multiple expense categories, with no vested interest in one supplier over another.
Our franchisees enjoy the opportunity to make money “immediately”, with a minimal learning curve, as our preferred suppliers and outsourcing partners do all the “heavy lifting”.
At ERC our only goal is to help companies reduce their indirect expenses in up to 40 different cost categories, including Telecommunications, Credit Card Processing, Office Supplies, Insurance, Travel, Payroll Services, among many more.
For more than 24 years, our unique 7 step process has allowed us to maximize savings for a wide range of cost categories in different industries nationwide. Our success is supported by a deep understanding of the procurement and supplier management functions that allows us to work with an extensive group of vendors that provide excellent service at the best possible costs.
We require minimum involvement from your staff, limited to pulling of invoices and/or contracts for the categories to be analyzed. From then on we do all the work and come back with recommendations on how to save money. Our fees are 100% based on performance and are funded by the savings we provide.
Over time we have found companies have a good understanding and control over their direct costs: Materials, Labor and key Services. However, when it comes to indirect costs, they lack the necessary industry knowledge, time, or both, to negotiate on the best terms. As a result, companies end up paying more than they should.
At ERC, we put our expertise at your service to help you save in those indirect costs categories.
ERC Creates Unique Value
Our franchise system is based upon our proprietary “Corporate Cost Reduction Process”. Franchisees are trained to market and perform services designed to reduce long-term costs, using ERC’s proprietary software. Our franchisees are not required to sell specific products, rather analyze client’s expenses, negotiate with national, regional and local suppliers and make recommendations which result in long-term savings.
