What were your first impressions of Auditel?

I was very impressed at our initial meeting, Auditel immediately understood what I required and offered solutions to everything raised.

What areas are Auditel currently working on for you? Does a particular area stand out for you?
Card payments, Water rates, Hygiene services, recycling and waste disposal and DX. We have made savings on everything Auditel has looked at, but the outstanding performance is definitely Postage – DX. In one office the fee was more than halved and there have been substantial savings at the other offices as well.

Are there any other areas in the future that you would like to involve Auditel in?
Yes – we will be looking at stationery supplies and energy next year.

“We have dealt with several “cost-saving” organisations in the past and have found the experience far from satisfactory, so we were rather cautious to begin with, but the service provided by Auditel has exceeded expectations.” – Mandi Miles, Office Manager, Churchers Solicitors

What benefits have Auditel brought to Churchers as part of this business relationship?
We believed we kept a close eye on our suppliers and costs – we now realise that this really wasn’t the case and we needed an outsider’s view on things to help us obtain the best deals available.

What are Churcher’s plans for the future?
We are a High Street law firm and intend to continue to supply our services to both businesses and individuals at an easy accessible local level. We also hope to continue to grow along the South Coast in the future.
