"With its partners, JPD Financial is leveraging best practices and technology platforms to help their clients boost savings.”

JPD Financial, an outsourcing firm helping many of the world’s largest companies better manage their accounts payable processes and cash, today announced it has partnered with AFMS and Utility Reduction Analysts (URA) to help drive client cost savings further. Both companies are similar to JPD in size and client portfolio.

AFMS is a services firm that analyzes transportation and shipping costs, identifying areas of potential savings, negotiating more favorable rates, and monitoring ongoing costs. URA provides cost reduction services for gas, electric, waste and telecommunications. Both companies have been in business for more than 20 years, and like JPD Financial, both companies have established significant trust with their client base by delivering effective analysis, recommendations, fraud detection, and reporting.

“Like us, AFMS and Utility Reduction Analysts strongly believe in the importance of client relationships,” said John Doyle, President of JPD Financial. “Their services are complementary to our Vendor Credit Recovery service and will support our clients as they continue to look for cost savings and implement best practices.”

These additional programs are impacting complex organizations by allowing a trusted partner to identify areas for improvement or efficiencies within the business units with minimal impact to internal staffing. These added value programs act as another layer or safety net for cost recoveries.

“As a joint effort, JPD, AFMS and URA are ensuring that our clients are aware of the additional services,” stated Alexa Bradley, Executive Director of Business Development and Marketing, JPD Financial.

“With a service-oriented approach, JPD Financial is a good fit for us and for our clients,” said AFMS President Mike Erickson. “We’re eager to discover how much more efficient we can make our clients’ businesses by partnering with JPD.”

“Similar to our own business strategy, JPD Financial is leveraging best practices and technology platforms to help their clients,” commented Jennifer Wynn Stoll, President and CEO of Utility Reduction Analysts. “Partnering with JPD Financial is a natural extension of our goal to help clients operate as efficiently as possible.”
