“Great things in business are never done by one person, they’re done by a team of people”
THE FCP Way:
After an initial telephone consultation, we will perform a forensic audit of every invoice for one month’s period of purchases. This ensures our solution covers and delivers cost savings for your entire business, not just cherry-pick the big-ticket items.
“The one-size-fits-all approach… is convenient, but lazy!”
We will then analyse your purchases using our bespoke software system, matching your products for the exact match in our supply base, identifying the savings for each category. We will be analysing every cent you spent, and identifying real savings on real purchases. “It is a capital mistake to theorise before one has data”
After the potential savings have been presented back to a member, we will bring each for the suppliers in to meet you and discuss the specifics of ordering and delivering, and even assist you in going live with orders and realising your savings as quickly as possible.
Our bespoke software then checks every invoice ongoing to ensure that you are being invoiced correctly, and our field team will perform regular reviews to ensure your savings are being fully realised and to understand your changing need. It is important to note that there is NO CHARGE for this service, and members keep 100% of the savings identified.
