Cost Optimisation Specialists Delivering Value Through Insight
We work alongside our clients’ existing finance, procurement and operations teams to help them to derive additional value from the supply chain.
Different clients extract that value in different ways. For many it’s a simple case of generating savings to use elsewhere in the business. Others place greater emphasis on an improvement in supplier service and quality, or the innovation which can be drawn from professional Supplier Relationship Management (SRM).
Whatever your definition of additional value, ERA can help your teams achieve it. We are a unique network of highly experienced supply-side experts and we help organisations like yours by working alongside your stakeholders to reduce overhead costs in a wide range of areas.
We use our people and analytical tools to do the hard work for you and as we’re currently helping more than 1,000 UK clients, we really know what best value looks like. Our specialists bring to bear our considerable spending power and a lifetime of experience gained during senior careers in their areas of expertise. This results in a service that helps your teams improve processes, save money and derive added benefits from suppliers.

"Our global network combined with local market knowledge enables ERA to help your organisation gain additional value from your supplier base."
Why is this relevant to you?
Most of our clients need to be persuaded that things could improve substantially. Senior decision makers in any organisation will usually feel costs are relatively under control and managed to a satisfactory level.
The mind-set of many organisations is that providing their suppliers are meeting the service and quality levels required to maintain operations and the overall spend is within budget parameters, that everything is working well.
But what if your budget is actually 20% higher than the true market rate? Without external validation of pricing and service level arrangements, it’s impossible to know. Our independent analysis ensures you are receiving best value and not wasting money through unnecessary over payment in any area of spending.
Helping you to bridge the gap to gain a competitive advantage
Many of our clients initially dismissed the idea that any improvements – and certainly any savings – that could be achieved would be worth the time and effort of finding them.
Our risk-free approach has enabled many of them to engage with us and generate significant cost savings and innovative new ways of working with suppliers.
"ERA offers a wide range of services. There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach and our engagements are truly consultative, therefore project scope and desired outcomes vary from client to client."
