Expertise : Business Supplies & Services

Auditel manages the full spectrum of business supplies and services

When it comes to managing costs many businesses focus on the major expenditures such as energy or communications, but often neglect the smaller ‘incidental’ overheads.

From office supplies, stationery and print through to freight, warehousing or waste management every business will incur a long tail of other cost categories. Left unchecked, these costs can fall through the cracks, however once you start adding them together, you’ll be surprised how they begin to stack up.

Complacency costs

Decisions on purchasing relatively inexpensive items, such as consumables, are often left at a relatively low level, and often remain the responsibility of staff rather than the FD or purchasing department. Organisations are also less inclined to monitor this spend.
