"We have learned a lot from the thorough and detailed work carried out by Expense Reduction Analysts to find potential savings."
Client interview: Félix Gonzalez, Managing Director, Mieres Tubos
CST: Why did you decide to work with Expense Reduction Analysts?
Gonzalez: We had very satisfying references from previous projects achieved by this consultancy for other companies in the group. All comments agreed on the high level of efficiency and effectiveness displayed by the Expense Reduction Analysts experts, as well as on the strong technical knowledge of the categories investigated that they had.
Another important part was the remuneration system proposed. In the current economic climate, the philosophy of “no savings, no fee” facilitates start-up for projects of this size.
With Expense Reduction Analysts, we were certain that the analysis and investigation work would be detailed and thorough, thus interesting, as this is the source of the consulting fees.
CST: What would you highlight in the work achieved by Expense Reduction Analysts?
Gonzalez: First, the seriousness of their approach and methodology at all stages.
Expense Reduction Analysts convey assurance and confidence, a result of broad experience and exhaustive knowledge of the analysed subject, the conditions of the market, the sector peculiarities, suppliers, options, news, etc.
Another important aspect is the critical sense with which they tackle the cost category analysis, which enable them to develop practical and highly efficient solutions, that maybe we would never have implemented and in view of the results obtained, have led to significant savings.
CST: Have you previously undertaken a cost reduction process?
Gonzalez: Like most companies in Spain, we are constantly analysing our expenses and trying to find optimisation solutions. The difference is, once again, the thorough, detailed and committed approach that Expense Reduction Analysts provides in the project.
The benefits of working with Expense Reduction Analysts go far beyond the savings achieved, as, thanks to this process, we have also learned to approach this continuous optimisation process in a deeper and more comprehensive way.
“Expense Reduction Analysts’ working approach for the project and the process of implementation show great experience, which generate confidence and trust”
