Absolutely not. Our franchisees are not auditors, they are cost reduction consultants. While we think the opportunity is even better, you might think of your franchise as a financial advisor or insurance agency owner. Your business isn’t to pick stocks or underwrite insurance. Your business is to on board and educate clients about how we can help them. You manage your business and your clients as their long term trusted advisor in cost reduction. Our audit staff performs all the backend work to deliver savings to your clients.
Your role is to seek out and build a book of business. These could be clients from any industry and around the country. You will on board and educate them on the various cost reduction services we offer. When we save them money your franchise business will receive a portion of the revenue. The more businesses you can help save money the more your franchise will flourish.
Businesses need our service because they do not have the expertise to properly monitor and manage these expenses. The fact that we find savings in over 9 out of 10 audits speaks for itself. Auditing these expense categories are what our auditors do day in and day out. That industry expertise and laser focus means we can find errors, overcharges, and opportunities for reduction where our client’s can’t. These industries are complex and if they don’t have a cost reduction consulting working on their behalf, they will overspend. And again, our pitch is simple….if we can’t save you money it doesn’t cost a thing. It’s a risk free, ‘why not’ proposition for our clients.
We target anyone with expenses in telecom, utility, merchant processing, and waste/recycling. As you can imagine almost every business in the country has these expenses. So the target market is large.
Generally speaking we are not interested in working with small establishments (mom and pop type businesses). These businesses are usually paying such small amounts that any savings we might find them would be negligible.
Examples of great prospects are (certainly not an all inclusive list):
- Grocery store chains
- Restaurant Groups
- Convenience stores
- Law Firms
- Call Centers
- Auto dealerships
- Small City and County Governments
- School systems
- Data Centers
- Country clubs
- Any large volume single location entity
- Any multi location entity
We are currently offering territories in all 50 states except California, Oregon, Washington, and Hawaii
