If savings can be found through the current supplier, (or with a new supplier), we will give you specific recommendations for saving money - without sacrificing quality or service. We may negotiate with our client's current suppliers, or we may recommend new vendors. The final decision always belongs to our client partners. We offer extensive knowledge of the marketplace and the ability to recommend the most advantageous suppliers and services for our clients.
What We Avoid! We do not pretend to be experts in your industry. Nor do we evaluate employees, staffing levels or efficiency of our client's personnel. All of our negotiations with suppliers and recommendations are held strictly confidential. We do not finger-point, and if there are areas the client does not wish to address, for any reason, we will respect their wishes. We will not suggest they cut salaries or staff. To the contrary, we are careful to encourage employees to be more cost- conscious, without being perceived as a threat to them. WE DO SELL PRODUCTS OR SERVICES.
