When I saw the numbers I was floored. If I have $24,000 a year to spend on something else, I’m thrilled.

Sacramento cost management company Peak Cost Containment has released a cost reduction case study showing how it saved more than $20,000 a year for a 70-employee firm.

The client, Probe Information Services Inc. in Sacramento, conducts insurance investigations, checks compliance and uncovers insurance fraud in 18 Western states. The case study shows how, with a minimal investment of time and at no cost, CEO Ross Stewart was able to cut business costs by 10 percent to 50 percent in a variety of cost categories.

"When I saw the numbers, I was floored," Stewart said.

For Probe, as for all clients, Peak went through the four-step Peak PrecisionSM Cost Reduction Method:

1. Estimate savings with a free Peak PreviewSM Cost Savings Analysis: Any company can get a confidential savings estimate from Peak by filling out a simple form available online. Peak can offer the service for free because it earns a percentage of the actual savings that the client nets after hiring Peak.

2. Plan changes with a Cost Savings Roadmap: Peak cuts costs without sacrificing quality. It finds vendors and negotiates terms that will serve the client well for years to come.

3. Implement changes following the Cost Savings Roadmap: Because Peak has negotiated hundreds of contracts on behalf of clients, it can do the job quickly and smoothly.

4. Track and tally savings results: Follow-up is vital to cost reduction. Peak makes sure that clients get the savings they were promised.

The Probe case study explains the process from initial meeting to final implementation. It is free and publicly accessible at
