SIB has been very successful with helping find savings and refunds upwards of 30% on monthly expenses such as utilities, waste removal, telecom, cable and satellite TV, credit card processing, janitorial service, property tax and workers compensation insurance. Our process is straightforward; we look for billing errors, contract compliance, and utility tariff errors. We make sure your company's rates are the lowest possible for your classification of business and obtain refunds due based on our findings. We implement savings with your existing vendors. No vendor changes needed. Unlike other consulting firms, SIB's innovative business model allows us to bill you based only on a percentage of the savings we find and only after you see the savings. If no savings are found no invoice is issued. All money is not created equal. $1,000,000 in sales is $1,000,000 minus labor & cost of goods sold. $1,000,000 in savings is $1,000,000.
