For one South Carolina company, that is the exact scenario that brings it more opportunity.

The goal of Charleston-based SIB Development & Consulting, a cost recovery and expense reduction firm, is to cut operating costs for businesses of all sizes and industries across the U.S. Thus business owners are turning to SIB at this critical time to identify substantial savings for them.

SIB experts hone in on virtually any or all accounts for which a company receives recurring bills - utilities, telecommunications, waste removal and/or janitorial services, property tax bills, workers’ compensation plans, cable/satellite TV, for example - and look for billing errors, cost reductions and refunds. They are compensated only when savings are realized.

These savings can easily be upwards of $1 million over a five-year period in any one of the many areas of a business the SIB team reviews, as SIB founder Dan Schneider has proven. That’s often a real boost to that company’s bottom line.

“The savings we find for a client averages 10 to 20 percent per vendor bill they receive,” Schneider said. “All we need is a month’s worth of bills to determine if there is a potential cost savings and/or refund for the company. And of course if a review is performed and we find no savings, the client is not billed.”

Recently SIB reduced by nearly $60,000 annually the cost of doing business for Lat Purser & Associates (LPA), a leading provider of commercial real estate services for 40 years.

“It took my staff minimal effort to obtain the documentation needed to complete audits that allowed SIB to discover various billing errors that would have been previously overlooked,” said Randolph Robinson, LPA vice president of property management. “After finding these errors, SIB was able to negotiate and obtain new rates and credits to be applied to our various vendor accounts.”
