the benefits of ERA
Leverage & Influence
ERA accesses price bands, added value services and discount structures – that are usually available only to the largest organisations, because we have exceptional supplier relationships.
ERA’s experts were previously Company Directors or Senior Management in their respective fields. This expert industry-specific knowledge means that you can have access to a level of expertise equivalent or superior to that of your suppliers and experience in the minutiae of the contracts.
Information & Resources
ERA is continually testing the market in terms of prices and services and has unique insight into the supplier base and what prices, products, and services are available to you. You can also access the time and expertise of our entire organisation and over 100 category specialists, on a project by project basis as required.
While we are an influential force within the supply chain, we are immune to influence from suppliers. We have the ability to approach the whole market on your behalf, unrestricted by agreements or preferred suppliers.
Significant Cost Reduction
Our savings average 19.7% across all projects undertaken, with almost 90% of projects identifying savings opportunities. In over 50% of cases, we can achieve savings without a change of supplier. In all cases savings are implemented without a reduction in the quality or service levels enjoyed by you.
ERA brings expert resource to each review which can take as little as 10 weeks to reach a point where options to reduce costs can be presented.
ERA project teams have implemented thousands of projects involving change across over 1,000 clients. You can be assured of our ability to make change happen without it being distracting to the core focus of your organisation.
Enhanced Cost Management
Tailored supply audit reports prove savings and provide insight and visibility that allow costs to be managed down, and suppliers held to account.
