"We chose to work with Expense Reduction Analysts because of their expertise on a number of cost categories, which allowed us to achieve savings in several areas. These positive results in the first projects implemented are the reason why we have broadened our cooperation to further cost categories.”
Piotr Plasa, CFO Ficomirrors
Expense Reduction Analysts partner, Monika Wardyn, along with a team of experts, conducted a detailed analysis of the areas of maintenance, payroll services and temporary work. For each of these, Ficomirrors demanded that paramount importance be given to the quality of services provided; notwithstanding it was possible to continue the cooperation with existing suppliers in some areas, but in others, the company decided to change suppliers and to establish different criteria for cooperation with them.
Implementing the Expense Reduction Analysts recommendations in the maintenance area led to savings of 26% in the security services category, more than 34% in cleaning, and more than 6% in electricity. The change of payroll services provider, along with Ficomirrors great open-mindedness with regards to introducing new functionality and solutions, enabled savings of 36%.
The total savings achieved by Ficomirrors through the cooperation with Expense Reduction Analysts amounted to more than 570,000 zł (over 135.000 Euros) per year.
