Not many businesses will be able to cite 2011 as a successful record-breaking year, but the last 12 months has proved just that for leading cost reduction franchise BCR Associates, which is reporting a phenomenal £1,731,447 worth of savings for its client base during this period.
BCR Associates - which now boasts a network of thirteen franchisees - has continued to grow and develop its client base, providing a no-cost consultancy service which allows customers access to its experienced procurement team. A truly recession proof business model, BCR Associates has enjoyed an exceptional 2011, helping to guide the increasing number of companies who, when faced with the challenges of the current economic climate, have been keen to slash the cost of their essential overheads.
Unlike some of the other cost reduction businesses in the market, BCR Associates also offers a genuine consultancy service which analyses not just costs but the overall efficacy of some of the business operations. An example of this is work undertaken for a coffee roasting client. BCR Associates identified the fact that the current energy supply was very inefficient and costly. The head office technical team proposed creating a custom built rotary gas meter to change the supply from LPG to natural gas. Despite the expense of the new meter, the client is destined to save £79,519 per annum. This equates to a 49% saving and due to the change from LPG to natural gas, also represents a massive saving to the environment, reducing carbon emissions by 80 Tons /CO2e per annum (the equivalent to driving round the earth in an average car 10 times!).
Commenting on the positive response to the service, co-founder Richard Dormer says, “BCR Associates’ supply chain network has access to information, data and tariffs that are difficult for clients to source directly – even if they invested the serious man hours required to research these preferential options. The company only deals with reputable supply chain partners, so customers are not only matched with the best value suppliers but are also only introduced to service providers who have passed BCR Associates’ stringent vetting and screening protocol.
The service also means clients no longer have to worry about roll over contracts as going forward, each account is personally managed and reviewed to ensure only the most suitable contacts remain in place. It is these commercially attractive benefits that make working with BCR Associates a highly compelling proposition and we are delighted that our work has proved instrumental in helping so many companies achieve an improved financial performance in 2011”.
