Expense Reduction Analysts or ERA is a global network of industry and cost category specialists. Founded and headquartered in London, England in 1992, ERA has helped thousands of small and medium sized companies manage expenses in over 40 different categories from packaging to uniforms to freight to IT. Many of the categories are indirect or secondary cost categories that companies often don’t have the time, resources or expertise to tackle. Typical savings per category are 15%-20% but they can be significantly higher. Best of all, we only get paid if we find savings and if we do find savings, our fees are funded via those savings.
