Auditel franchise owners help school save money

Auditel now has over 200 specialists providing a cost management consultancy service to its clients.

To ensure that each franchise owner can provide the best possible service to clients they have all undergone thorough training in how to use the Auditel systems and tools.

One client that has benefited from Auditel’s service is Haberdashers’ Monmouth School for Girls. The school is part of a family of five schools across three sites in Monmouth, providing education for boys and girls from three to 18. Tessa Norgrove, the School’s Bursar, was first introduced to Auditel in late 1999 by Claire Power-Browne and her Business Partner, Steve Ray.

Shortly after the working relationship started, the lead consultants, Power-Browne and Ray, complimented their own strengths by drawing on a wealth of expertise and invited their Auditel colleagues Ravi Khakhria and Denis Brennan to assist them. So far, Auditel has reviewed the School’s gas, electricity, landline and mobile communications expenditures and found savings up to 22 per cent in these areas by moving the School onto more appropriate contracts and tariffs. In addition, they have recovered over £43,000 of incorrectly applied electricity charges. Brennan, an ex-IT Director, is now analysing their IT management structure and service provision across the three sites. Going forward, Auditel has been invited to review additional categories, including stationery and IT consumables as well as janitorial supplies.

Chris Jones, Haberdashers’ Monmouth School for Girls Finance and Administration Manager, said: “I’ve had a lot of direct contact with the Auditel team over the past year and am extremely pleased with the service they’ve provided. Everybody we deal with is very professional and a delight to work with.”
