Industry-leading operating cost consultancy PCMG has reached another major milestone, with its recoveries for clients passing the £400 million mark for the first time.
With an ever-growing customer base, Blackpool-based PCMG has audited more than half of the FTSE 100 companies and its results have led to large-scale recoveries for big businesses and organisations across all sectors.
The company uses highly-specialist expertise and a forensic auditing approach to bills in order to reduce operating costs and improve overall performance in the areas of energy, telecoms, water and accounts payable. Established in 1993, PCMG has almost 25 years of specialist knowledge in analysing and sourcing data, using a range of leading-edge tools.
Managing director Jenny Draper joined the business in early 2016 and since then recoveries amounting to £100m have been secured.
She said: “Passing the £400 million mark is another notable milestone in the continuing growth of PCMG and the industry-leading reputation we have earned over the years is down to a number of key business strengths that we continue to display and develop. They include our expert and dedicated team’s in-depth knowledge of billing and regulatory policy, coupled with their professionalism and willingness to continue to develop their knowledge and expertise.
“Members of our teams sit on national advisory panels, influencing policy and regulations, such as non-commodity charges for energy. Then there are the positive working relationships that we foster with our clients throughout all our projects. Working closely with them as part of their team, we are able to deliver meaningful information and results.
“Coupled with that are the strong relationships we have built and continue to support and nurture with suppliers in the energy, telecoms, water and accounts payable sectors. These different elements, together with our ‘deep dive’ ethos, all add up to an approach that works and delivers for our clients.”
PCMG is part of the Ayming group (www.ayming.com), Europe’s leading business performance consultancy, with a €164m-turnover and 1,500 staff worldwide. The group recovered over £1bn for clients in 2016, operating across 16 global markets, with audits delivered in more than 30 countries.
