36 per cent growth in consulting revenue in two years
The future looks bright
Expense Reduction Analysts UK and Ireland has just announced its results for 2010-11 and has seen a 36 per cent increase in franchise owner revenue over the last two years.
Following this fantastic growth the UK’s leading Cost, Purchase & Supplier Management franchise is not resting on its laurels as franchise owners witnessed at the recent 2011 National Conference with the unveiling of the five year Strategic Plan to grow the business further.
The plan, which has been 12 months in the making, was put together by the Advisory Board (10 leading franchise owners and the franchisor) and lays out the vision that will strengthen this exceptional growth in revenue and continue to break records well into the future.
The two day conference was attended by over 140 franchise owners with tailored sessions including a half day training on consultative selling run by Miller Heiman, which was very well received, project specialist workshops and a supplier exhibition, all culminating in the glitzy black tie gala dinner.
A number of awards were presented to franchise owners who have excelled in 2011. Simon Perkins won New Consultant of the Year, Adam Wheatley won Outstanding Achievement, Derek Hodd won highest income earner and the 2011 Consultant of the Year was David Keating.
Winner of the highest income award for 2010/11 was Derek Hodd with a staggering £447K
Expense Reduction Analysts - Leader in Cost, Purchase and Supplier Management
As the UK and Ireland’s leading Cost, Purchase and Supplier Management franchised consultancy, Expense Reduction Analysts offers you an exciting low risk business opportunity to grow a successful
consulting practice that will meet your income goals and deliver the work life balance you desire.
With cost reduction being the number one issue facing both the public and private sectors, organisations are aggressively streamlining core expenditure, yet many of them are still overpaying by as much as 40% on their everyday operating costs.
Many businesses simply do not have the manpower or the depth of knowledge and expertise to keep control of these costs. Our franchised consultants ensure that they are always achieving best value from their suppliers.
You will be professionally trained to have the ability and tools to find significant cost savings for your clients. There has never been a better time to take the step into self-employment and invest in your own ability.
Newcomer of the Year
Since joining in July 2010, Simon Perkins (pictured) is really going places, recently winning the prestigious ‘Newcomer of the Year’.
“It’s incredible to win an award within my first 12 months,” says Simon, “knowing that all the hard work I’ve put into my business has been recognised is a brilliant feeling.
“I worked for UPS for ten years and didn’t seem to be going anywhere. I was well paid, but I had always wanted to run my own business and be independent. Overall I wanted to utilise my skills.
“Within the first year I have had so many positive experiences, from my fi rst day at the Training Academy in Southampton, through to delivering my fi rst projects. The one thing that sticks out for me has been the openess to share knowledge from my colleagues, because we have all taken the time to invest in this business, we all want to be successful. It’s such a difference from corporate life, where everyone is a lot more guarded and less likely to help.
“The great thing about this business is that we are able to provide savings in over 100 areas of Cost, Purchase & Supplier Management. The experience in our network means that we never have to turn a client away. How many businesses can genuinely say that?”
