ERA’s Expertise

Over the past 20 years, Expense Reduction Analysts has assisted schools throughout Australia to reduce their expenditure on everyday, unavoidable operating costs.

Across 60% of our cost reviews, the incumbent supplier retains the business, with the school benefiting from negotiated rates, as well as a deeper understanding of their expenses and supplier relationships.

While maintaining or improving the quality of products and services, these schools reduced their operational costs from 5% to 25%. The additional funds sourced from the cost savings could then be used for new school projects.
