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.
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.
We worked with 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 informative and professionally prepared. What we loved about the process was 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.
The program was a major win. ACC’s VP met with me in person, and then we communicated a few times by e-mail. After we provided the standard information they needed, ACC put together a high-level report with recommendations for us to approve. After that, the savings rolled in. I suggest that anyone trying to contain costs give ACC a call.
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.
We were a billion dollar operation during our first engagement with ACC. Since then, we have doubled our revenue. They secured us lower prices in an area of MRO manufacturing facilities that we could not have done without them. They had key contacts, relations with premium vendors and a network of companies that returned remarkable savings for us — more. Their process was transparent and proof was quantitative.
The obvious benefit to mention is how much money we saved after partnering with ACC. Equally impressive, however, was how little work was needed internally for it to happen. ACC rolled up their sleeves and went to bat for us. After pulling our records, our job was essentially finished. They worked through the complicated elements like contracts and supplier negotiations, taking the time to learn about our specific purchasing needs. They found savings in every category they reviewed and cut 20% off of our annual spending.
ACC reduced costs in ways our internal procurement team never considered. They really leveraged their buying power for impressive savings company-wide. We benefited greatly from Alliance Cost Containment’s cost analysis and negotiations. I would absolutely recommend this service.
We were impressed by the straightforwardness of ACC and their philosophy that if they don’t generate documented savings, then they don’t get paid. With their buying power we were able to negotiate better pricing with our existing vendors and realized some really outstanding savings. Their initial findings were so impressive that I extended our agreement to utilize them in other departments of our organization.
What separated ACC from their competitors was that they did not come in making strong promises. They were disciplined, did thorough homework and were very quantitative. Their team poured over all of our purchasing info, gathered the facts and did an impressive analysis to find where our organization could benefit most. We came out with more than 35% in savings that went right into our bottom line.
We were extremely impressed with what ACC did for our organization. Their consultants were very knowledgeable, but more importantly, they helped us save more than 30% on our energy and shipping costs. At the beginning of the project they laid out a game plan so there were no surprises. We went by that plan and the result was a major win for our business.
ACC achieved savings in significant areas. Our relationship with them was extremely helpful because we have several campuses across the state and no internal procurement department. ACC helped us identify areas where consolidating expense would be beneficial and turned those findings into savings. ACC’s buying power helped us see benefits across the entire 7,000 student institution and saved us more than $105,000 annually.
