Frequently Asked Questions
WHY DO WE NEED SAV-ON’S EXPENSE REDUCTION SERVICES?
Most business owners/managers do not have the time and expertise required to uncover hidden overcharges in their services. Our preferred relationships with vendors and our understanding of the industry (rates, equipment, fuel indexes, surcharges, recycling
indexes, CPI, etc) enables us to work from a position of strength on your behalf. With 20,000 successful audits since 1994, we are experts at reducing your expenses.
WHAT IS THE COST?
None. No upfront costs and we perform our services on a contingency fee of 50%. Our No Results, No Fee Guarantee means you don’t pay a penny unless – and until – we produce a refund or a reduced monthly bill. We are paid out of the savings we procure,
so no new money is needed. We increase your cash flow, we don’t reduce it. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain as our commissions come directly from the refunds/savings that are documented.
HOW MUCH OF OUR TIME WILL THE ANALYSIS REQUIRE?
None! That’s one of the greatest benefits in having us work for you. We perform our analysis and implement our client-approved recommendations without disrupting your daily business activities.
HOW CAN YOU SAVE US MONEY?
We identify errors, overcharges and cost reduction opportunities by evaluating your invoices, agreements, equipment and services. The savings are verified in the form of a refund or a reduced monthly bill.
WHAT IF WE HAVE CONTRACTS IN PLACE FOR THE SERVICE?
The fact that you have a contract in place has very little bearing on our ability to produce results. In fact, 95% of our client’s do have contracts in place. We produce results on over 80% of those properties.
HOW LONG DOES THE ANALYSIS TAKE TO COMPLETE?
Our analysis can be completed in as little as two weeks to several months depending on the number of locations you have and the size and complexity of your accounts.
WHAT DO WE NEED TO GET STARTED?
All that is required is your approval on our Cost Reduction Agreement and a copy of last month’s invoices.
HOW DO YOU HANDLE OUR CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION?
It’s held strictly confidential and we are always glad to sign an NDA. Generally only
invoices and the current service agreement are collected. Occasionally with large complex
reviews we may execute a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) which includes
confidentiality and non-disclosure sections.
