Q: Why do you think you can find savings? We already address this internally.

A: We provide a risk-free means to verify your previous internal efforts. You pay no fee unless your company saves money as a result of our work and recommendations. History has proven to us that when a prospective client says that they have already implemented a cost reduction strategy, and we proceed to get engaged, we have always found savings. At least 96% of the time. This is not a reflection of the quality of the client’s efforts, it is merely a reflection of our years of experience with proven cost reduction strategies.
