Company Overview

Expense Reduction Analysts UK has been trading in the UK & Ireland since 1992. We are a business consultancy, offering strategic advice and practical methods which optimise supplier relationships.

Over the last 25 years, we've built a powerful and unique network of expertise that collaborate to work on behalf of clients. We currently have circa 135 franchisees.

Our franchisees act as b2b management consultants to a range of organisations, delivering exceptional savings for clients, savings tens and sometimes hundreds of thousands of pounds. They also work closely with client stakeholders delivering additional value to internal teams, transferring knowledge and improving processes, leading to lasting benefits.

Franchise Overview

Instead of asking if procurement is the opportunity for you, better to ask yourself if you’re interested in making a difference? Is empowering other business owners to improve their situations and in many cases, reinvesting savings to grow and evolve, the type of thing that will motivate you?

Our ERA UK franchisees do much more than support one another, they strategically align to contribute to each other’s business growth. The unique structure of the franchise sees Business Development Managers, Client Relationship Managers and Cost Centre Specialists co-exist in a climate of mutual benefit.

We train already capable and experienced businesspeople and teach them to be their own boss, giving them control, flexibility and enormous potential. Our proven model will be taught in detail during your initial five week training period.

All new franchisees are trained so they can build a sustainable business by winning and managing their own clients and doing their own simple projects.

Daily Life of a Franchisee

ERA UK franchisees either act as generalists whereupon they perform both of the following, or they tend to evolve into spending most of their time in one of two main roles.

Client Managers tend to spend their time doing sales and marketing activities. They might be making calls, managing telemarketers, writing emails, managing marketing campaigns and attending client and prospect meetings trying to win new business and develop existing accounts.

Project Specialists tend to spend their time analysing data, writing reports and meeting client stakeholders.
