I already have a staff member or team handle our vendor relationships, why do I need you?
Your procurement department, office manager or assistant has to juggle almost as many responsibilities as you do. CostFixed is building a nationwide distributed team of industry experts who have access to closely guarded details in pricing, terms, and policies. Our network of insiders and our years of expertise specific to B2B verticals has secured us access to the best pricing and value on the market.
Do I need to spend a lot of time on this?
Every successful business owner is busy. Engagement schedules can range from 4-8 weeks but your direct participation is usually kept to 60 minutes or less. It takes 2-3 minutes to think about your top 5 expense categories; another 2-3 minutes to dig up their recent invoices; less than 30 minutes to explain to us your typical usage and absolute must-haves; and way less than 30 minutes to hear about all the money we found.
How long does a typical engagement take?
We aim to secure a commitment from your vendors in under 30 days. The total length of engagement will depend on how quickly you send over your invoices, how many invoices we’re investigating, and how accessible your vendors are (we just love customer support hold music). We would be very surprised if an engagement lasts longer than 60-90 days.
How do I know my costs will stay low?
How poetic! Our services also include ongoing monthly account monitoring to ensure no new unnecessary fees are added after our engagement.
What if we don’t like sharing our private company data?
Our analysis categories can involve as much or as little as you want. We understand that tax returns are higher on the sensitivity spectrum than your document shredding bill. The majority of your bills will not contain any sensitive information but we have privacy agreements to validate our confidentiality as well as instructions on how to send over just the core data for our review.
Can you help with my personal accounts too?
Depending on your location, we can help with cost reduction for certain personal expenses such as Property Taxes, Cable & Satellite Packages, and Home Security.
What‘s with the name CostFixed?
Many of our various expense categories are considered a “Fixed Cost”. We fix Fixed Costs. Get it? CostFixed? Get your Cost Fixed. Okay, we’ll see ourselves out.
