How to buy spend and save


For most businesses, being able to reduce costs is a good thing. But reducing costs can’t come at the price of your quality of service. Rather, you want to provide a full‐service solution to end users which is incredibly cost efficient. When we first formed Becketts in 1998, this is pretty much all we did. So, it’s no surprise that we have significant experience in performing cost reduction studies across a business, often alongside a forward‐looking technological road map.

As part of our service, we will analyse your business and get a good understanding of your existing cost base – often getting our hands dirty and going through physical paperwork. This is so that we can take the widest possible scan of direct and indirect costs, but if you want us to focus on a specific area, we are happy to do this too.
As a result of these studies, we are often able to save our customers money in the following areas:

  • Unnecessary services
  • Rental reductions
  • Support cost reductions
  • Call package and charges reductions
  • License reductions
  • Refund negotiations
  • Recommendations to reduce staff time requirements (if requested)

This is not rocket science and we don’t claim that it is. However, we find that businesses and organisations just don’t have the time or resource to take a sustained rigorous approach to cost control. That’s why it’s good to have a fresh set of eyes on things.

Becketts offer a range of fee structures to suit your individual needs, and ensure you’re not paying for more than what you need. And if we don’t meet the targets we agreed on in the beginning? Then you won’t owe us a penny.
