Andy Carless, from Warrington is launching BCR Associates, a no cost consultancy service which allows customers access to its experienced procurement team whose expertise and knowledge will identify opportunities to reduce the spend on a wide range of business overheads. Andy, who has worked in a number of high profile roles within both the utilities and the distribution industries, is no stranger to the world of procurement and is keen to work with local companies to improve their financial performance in 2012 by offering cost savings across a portfolio of sectors: Electricity, Gas, Telecoms, Insurance, Staff, Water, Finance, Vehicles, Rateable Values and Green Services.
Commenting on his new venture, Andy says, “For some time I have been looking to establish my own business but have always been acutely aware of the need to identify a ‘recession proof’ model to ensure success and the cost reduction sector seems to offer just that. Anyone with a business will be familiar with the need to reduce unnecessary expenditure, especially in the complex utilities and telecoms sectors. BCR Associates’ USP lies in the fact that 100% of all savings made are directly passed on to our customers (excluding water and rateable values). We review the expenditure on current overheads, create a proposal of where savings can be made and handle the whole process. The service has zero cost implications to clients, so there is nothing to lose and everything to gain. At worst, we offer companies a free business health check and, at best we cut costs affecting the bottom line to give a dramatic boost to profitability.
Our supply chain network has access to information, data and tariffs that are not available on the open market. We only deal with reputable supply chain partners, so customers are not only matched with the best value suppliers but are also only introduced to service providers who have passed BCR Associates’ stringent vetting and screening protocol. Our service also means clients no longer have to worry about roll over contracts as going forward, each account is personally managed and reviewed to ensure only the most suitable contacts remain in place”.
The arrival of BCR Associates in Warrington has already caught the eye of a number of business owners; watch this space to find out the total £££ savings that Andy can achieve for companies operating in the North West!
