The savings generated by ERA, along with the commitment and attention given to our projects, has been a positive experience for us. We project our annual savings to be at $240K for courier and $135K for freight, amounting to an annual improvement of $375K or 31% of annual freight expenses.
Patricia Boucher, Chief Financial Officer
I can't express enough the value these people provided to our company. Some of their work offered us significant savings opportunities, in excess of 50%, and all of their work provided an expert review of the value and service we were receiving for our expenditure. We truly appreciate the impact this has had on our bottom line, but more importantly, we value the service they provided through their process. We now understand much more about how our money is being spent and the value we receive for it.
Dennis Cahill, President
Alta Hotel Group
As leaders in the Snack Food industry, we are always looking for opportunities to improve our business. As part of a comprehensive program to effectively manage spending we decided to partner with ERA to examine expenditures in key areas requiring significant resources, time and expertise. Because we run a highly efficient business, we were initially skeptical that ERA would be able to find meaningful savings. However, since ERA's payment model is based on gain share, we decided to give them a try. The result has been improved service and better pricing from select suppliers. We were pleasantly surprised by the results ERA delivered.
