Our Focus Is On Client Results

Unlike most others in the cost reduction industry, the savings we deliver our clients are based on actual, concrete contract negotiations and findings. Our success is measured from those results. Below are only a few representative case studies from the many companies and organizations we serve coast-to-coast.

 

Regional Hospital

The ACC Team was asked by a regional hospital to review a long-term relationship with their insurance broker. Their existing provider’s service was very good, but the hospital wanted to know if it was receving a competitive price for the market.

Our Subject Matter Experts examined the policy and eliminated specific coverage gaps and duplication. While bidding the new package to the incumbent and two other brokers, we found that one of the new brokers bidding used deeply specialized knowledge of healthcare to offer a superior service package — and a cost savings of 32%.

$100 Million Dollar Book Publisher

With the rise of e-readers and tablets, publishing companies are getting leaner to survive. A publishing powerhouse recently came to ACC to find ways to trim their operating costs. Using our national purchasing contracts and subject matter experts, we initially pursued savings in expense categories including:

  • Freight
  • Payroll Processing
  • Accounts Payable Processing
  • Printing

With over $327,000 in annual savings identified in Phase 1, the client asked us to explore several other categories that yielded $300,000 more in additional savings.

$50 Million Beauty Manufacturer

ACC has completed a project for a $50 million health & beauty manufacturer. The industry leader was looking for a cost reduction program faster than their internal staff could manage.

This Northeastern U.S. company had us review several expense categories, and we found savings in:

  • Telecom
  • Electricity & Gas
  • Corrugated Packaging
  • Other packaging materials
  • Office Supplies

This client also received soft-cost savings through supplier consolidation and better purchasing processes.

Pharmaceutical Packaging Company

A company specializing in contract packaging for pharmaceutical companies is one of ACC’s recent success stories. After reviewing $11MM in annual indirect operating costs, we engaged suppliers in 14 different expense categories. Our most notable savings came from janitorial supplies, printing, MRO items, staffing services and packaging products.

Along with the hard-dollar savings that we found, the client was able to enjoy additional soft-dollar savings by streamlining selected processes and reducing A/P processing expenses through a smaller base of suppliers.

Client Testimonials

The positive feedback we get from our clients is one of the most gratifying aspects of our engagements. Below are a few of the comments we have received when we ask clients to describe their experience with ACC.
  • The staff of the Community Action Council always made our best efforts to find the lowest costs. We took advantage of state-wide pricing contracts to ensure that the lowest price has been found. In spite of our efforts, ACC’s contract pricing and negotiating techniques resulted in lower pricing on over half of the suppliers reviewed in this project. The negotiations with our postage meter and copier suppliers were particularly valuable, helping us lock in large discounts for five-year contract periods.

    – Jack Burch, Executive Director, Community Action Council
  • Ohio Valley Wholesale was very pleased with the results we experienced with our ACC cost containment project. We achieved significant savings consistent with their original estimates. The bidding and bid acceptance process was smooth and easy, with no pressure to accept any particular bid. The follow-up and billing process was clear and accurate. Overall, I was impressed with your professionalism, the ease of implementation and execution, and – most importantly – the results that were achieved.

    – Jim Glockner, CEO, Ohio Valley Wholesale Distributors
  • We worked Alliance Cost Containment to help us analyze our spending and determine if we had the potential for cost reductions. Their team did an excellent job of involving the right people and keeping the meetings and staff interruptions to a minimum. The reports we received were very informative and professionally prepared. What we love about the process is the zero risk. If we didn’t save money, we were not out-of-pocket. We were pleased with both the results, and how the process was conducted. We would not hesitate to recommend ACC to other folks interested in obtaining cost savings based on actual results.

    – Don Sever, Deputy Director of Administration & Finance, Blue Grass Airport
  • The program was almost effortless on our part. Their VP met briefly with me, then we communicated a few times by e-mail. After their analysis report came and the savings rolled in. I would suggest to anyone trying to contain costs to help their bottom line in this economy to give ACC a call.

    – Mike Long, Owner, Long’s Pic Pac
  • We were very pleased with the services of Alliance Cost Containment. There were no downsides for us to look at several areas of expenses to see if we could reduce some of our costs. The end result was significant amounts saved in multiple areas. Our relationship with ACC helped improve our overall financial performance.

    – Randy LeMay, CFO, Lexington Clinic
