We have used the services of John MacNamara and BCM for our hotel group cost reduction program since 2010.
Some of the costs targeted were in the area of cleaning materials, stationary and financial charges among others. One of our concerns in the process was the long term relationships that we had with our current suppliers listing and the – fear of moving to new suppliers. John and his team completely understood where we were coming from and since then we have saved at least €100,000 from our cost base whilst still largely dealing with the same supplier base.
We have found the services of John MacNamara and BCM to be excellent in every way and would not hesitate in recommending them for similar work.
Many thanks again.

Bartlett employed the services of Peter Haste at BCM to perform a review of our operating costs and whilst we thought we had a good grip on our business expenses, we were delighted with the savings opportunities identified and implemented.
The service delivered is genuinely risk free as well as adding and provided a good independent, objective and non-disruptive review of how we consume costs, both from a process efficiency and rate card perspective.
| would be happy to recommend the professional services of Peter Haste at BCM to other business directors and owners.

Having now undergone the large majority of the cost reduction project covering a number of areas within the group, I am writing to thank you for the services BCM have provided.
We thought we had a strong hold on our expenses, however you have managed to find further savings that have been substantial and obtained with minimal input from ourselves.
I would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone considering a review of their overheads. Thank you again for a job well done, it was a pleasure working with you.

The Leinster Leader
I engaged Business Cost Management to review our overheads and identify savings. The project resulted in. significant savings in several categories including telecommunications, electricity, office supplies, chemicals and mineral water. The savings were achieved through negotiations with existing suppliers, the introduction of new suppliers, streamlining our ordering procedure and introducing strategies for eliminating unnecessary charges.
The project ran smoothly and was considered successful as there were no financial risks for the Leinster Leader since BCM operates on a “No Foal ~ No Fee” basis and was paid a percentage of saving. Moreover, quality levels were not affected and all savings were quantifiable.
BCM adopted a professional approach in dealing with our suppliers and staff and was quite unobtrusive both when gathering data and when implementing savings. I was impressed by the depth of analysis and the clarity of the report and would gladly recommend Business Cost Management to any business wishing to improve their bottom line through structured cost reduction.
Tom Hanlon – Financial Controller
Chubb Ireland Group
I am writing to express Chubb Irelands satisfaction with the cost reduction project recently completed by Business Cost Management. Over the last two years we have achieved significant savings without compromising quality.
We were impressed by the ability of BCM to work independently during the conduct of the project. Thousands of invoices were obviously sorted, condensed and analysed to provide a meaningful picture of our company from the bottom up. We felt you worked with our staff in helpful way and handled supplier negotiation in a formal and professional manner. Finally I am happy that the documentation BCM Ltd provided to show the actual savings achieved was very clear and transparent
Overall I would be happy to recommend your services to any potential customers.
