Auditel Continues to Save Thousands of Pounds for All Kinds of Companies

LONDON, March 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Auditel, the UK and Ireland's highly-regarded Cost Management Consultancy, recently conducted a survey of the leaders of more than 100 organisations in conjunction with the influential magazine, Management Today. More than two-thirds of respondents said that they were engaging in a cost management programme.

Chris Allison, Auditel's Managing Director says: "For the last two decades Auditel's team of over 200 skilled professionals have built a reputation as trusted strategic advisors to management teams of medium and large organisations across the UK and Ireland. With specialists in over 100 business cost areas and a diverse range of industry sectors, our teams of experts are fully equipped to understand your business and the specific challenges you face.

"Our survey indicated that a lack of understanding can be the biggest obstacle to successful cost management. Deloitte's third biennial cost survey 2013, reported that the failure rate for cost initiatives climbed to 48%, meaning that nearly half of these fail to achieve their goals. Over the last few weeks, our UK and Irish networks have reported a number of successes for their clients, confirming our view that there are many organisations opting to outsource this vital aspect of cost management."
