Looking for additional services to add value to the offering being made to their client base, John Bill approached Auditel Consultant Neil Calcutt.

John says, “A risk-free offer to our clients to manage their non-strategic overheads seemed like an ideal proposal. SMEs rarely have adequate time or resources to thoroughly review these costs nor are they certain whether or not they are receiving services at best value. We were sure that Neil and his Auditel colleagues would be able to effectively manage these overheads for our clients as they are working within the essential service markets every day.”

To prove his abilities, Neil conducted a pilot review of Traflagars’ own expenditure on energy, communications and several aspects of facilities management. The results he achieved were impressive. Neil explains, “When analysing energy expenditure I was able to identify a refund of long overpaid funds that had accumulated credit on Trafalgars’ electricity account; whilst a competitive tender resulted in a change of gas supplier.”

“We are sure that many of our clients will realise the benefit of a real win-win proposition where, if Neil and his colleagues are unable to find savings, no fee is charged. The savings Neil achieved for Trafalgars proves the value of the Auditel service. We will continue to offer this service to all of our clients and are sure that, given time, it will roll out to many more of them.” – John Bill, Trafalgars

Further to this pilot project, one of Trafalgars’ largest clients has already signed up to the Auditel service and John Bill concludes, “We are sure that many of our clients will realise the benefit of a real winwin proposition where, if Neil and his colleagues are unable to find savings, no fee is charged. The savings Neil achieved for Trafalgars proves the value of the Auditel service. We will continue to offer this service to all of our clients and are sure that, given time, it will roll out to many more of them.”
