A powerful network of independent consulting professionals
Expense Reduction Analysts (ERA) is one of the world's leading networks for cost, purchase and supply management. Founded by Fred Marfleet in the United Kingdom in 1992, offices in the United States were opened in 2003. ERA holds a powerful position within a very compelling market segment of the consulting industry.
In excess of 650 franchisees in more than 30 countries around the globe specialize in non-core, general and administrative costs. Here in the U.S., more than 170 franchisees help their clients reduce indirect spends. Our franchisees save clients money in more than 40 cost categories including freight, telecommunications, office
supplies, fleet management, insurance and more.
The ERA business strategy provides a low-risk value proposition largely due to our "no savings – no fee" model. Clients and franchisees alike benefit significantly: our franchisees share the cost savings with their clients.
One of the many advantages of our network of highly experienced franchisees is the opportunity to leverage our shared expertise to help meet the specific demands of each client project. The collective knowledge and market power of our network offers a great advantage to new ERA franchisees.
All businesses are more profitable when they can reduce costs and maintain quality. Given today's challenging economic environment, client demand for actionable cost, purchase and supply management solutions has never been greater, making our sustainable business model highly desirable. Simply put — this is a great business opportunity.
