BCM Business Cost Management is a world leading Cost Management company. Founded in 1993, the company has experienced continuous growth by building an extensive client base and strong international presence.

BCM has operated in Portland, Oregon since 2020. The business is led and managed by Peter Minshall.

BCM has two focus areas for our clients, Cost Reduction and Revenue Growth. In our cost reduction practice, we work with organisations of all sizes to review and examine costs of all categories to find savings for our clients. This may be through existing and new supplier engagement, or with process re-design, and often it is a combination of both. BCM only ever charges a % of the actual savings generated, ensuring that our now famous guarantee, No Savings, No Charge! remains entirely valid.

Secondly, we also help micro- to small businesses with Revenue Growth. We jointly develop growth plans that typically double or triple revenues over a period. Again, our clients only win as our charges are based on a percentage of the revenue growth achieved.

In both practices there are two common threads:

  • We happily fill roles that our clients find it difficult to do, either because they have limited time or resource (cost reduction in areas of general overheads is often a good example of this) or because they lack the broader experience required in certain areas, often seen in revenue growth projects.
  • We stay with our clients for the entire duration of the implementation, to support the realisation of the savings or growth plans developed. We do not leave the business benefits to happen by chance. We make sure they really take place by monitoring them, helping to control the environment around them and (if necessary) recommending and taking additional corrective measures if circumstances change. Again, it is linked to our guarantee, No Results, No Charge!
