The cable, communication and utility industries are ever-evolving in the world of change and innovation. Increasing capital requirements, aging infrastructure, competitive alternatives, increasing operating costs (i.e. programming costs, environmental costs, etc.) and increasing governmental requirements are common challenges. These challenges are putting pressure on the industry to find other sources of cash.
Many of ERA’s clients lack the resources or have a limited depth of knowledge of each of their supplier’s and their industries. It is simply cost prohibitive and/or impractical to allocate additional and experienced resources to less strategic costs. As a result, meaningful dollars are being left on the table in many cost areas like small package and LTL freight, merchant card and banking fees, office supplies, copiers, uniforms, waste, insurance, MRO/field consumables and fleet, just to mention a few.
