Budget & Expense

Case Situations

Company Challenge:
Extremely high cost of doing business in Latin America, Europe, and Asia, where products and services were in early adaptor phase, resulting in unacceptable ROI.

Analysis Demonstrated:
Vendors and services sourced were not providing optimal pricing, frequently charging 25% markup for services provided. Also faced challenge of European Value Added Tax (VAT).

  • On-site visits and negotiations led to strategic re-sourcing of vendors and processes, cutting marketing expense by 20% in certain regions. Changing locations of services in Europe also afforded more beneficial VAT treatment.
  • Strategic Partnerships with business organizations afforded a local presence on the ground to manage processes and act as a liaison for a foreign corporation, frequently providing more efficient level of service.
