Expense Reduction Coaching (ERC) is a proven process for saving companies money, and profiting from sharing 50% of those new found cost savings. By offering a no obligation risk-free model for business owners of all sizes, ERC franchisees are in a unique position of offering a truly win-win situation with their clients. ERC franchisees are trained to market and perform services designed to reduce long-term costs, while using ERC's proprietary software. Our franchisees are not required to sell specific products, but analyze their client's expenses, negotiate with suppliers and make recommendations.
