About the project
Cytopathos Ltd was founded in 2006. The laboratory employs 74 staff, including 13 physicians, 2 biologists and 2 geneticists, and is one of the largest bioptic cytological companies in Slovakia for the screening of organ-specific or non specific antibodies in the diagnosis of autoimmune diseases.
From the very first meeting between Expense Reduction Analysts Tamara Štrbáková and Iveta Živicová and owner/Managing Director Doctor Dušan Daniš, there was a mutual interest in collaborating.
The company owner welcomed the opportunity to investigate costs and identify saving potentials, especially in categories where staff do not have the knowledge or resources to further optimise expenses.
Employees of the laboratory are specialists in their field, and the optimisation of costs is not part of their core responsibilities. “I knew that having an external outlook on our costs would be an advantage for our company” said Dušan Daniš. This belief was confirmed by the positive results achieved in the categories of medical supplies and chemicals.
Following the successful start, Daniš decided to carry on with the cooperation to investigate industrial gases. The results were significant savings and an adjustment of the order process.
What the client says:
“Office supplies were not just the confirmation that it is appropriate for Expense Reduction Analysts to investigate, analyse and offer a number of solutions amongst which I chose the best one for the company. ERA is like an extended arm that comes to the rescue of our staff and finds potential where they did not see it.”
