- Review Vendor Spend
We look at 12 months of expenses across all categories from your general ledger to give you the big picture view of your spend and identify high-potential savings areas.
- Define the Scope and Roadmap
Decide which expenses you want to tackle first. We meet with internal stakeholders in each expense category to gather additional details and data and obtain authorization letters permitting us to work directly with your vendors.
- Analyze, Negotiate, and Present the Opportunity
We thoroughly audit your spend, invoices, and contract terms and conditions, uncovering every area for savings and optimization with existing vendors and services. Upon request, we can also look at sourcing alternate vendors. You review the full scope of opportunities and decide which to approve and implement.
- Implement Savings Strategies
We put new contracts and rates into effect and provide your internal teams with documentation of all new pricing agreements, terms, and conditions. When you save, we share a portion of the savings, so there are no upfront costs and no risks to you.
- Validate Savings and Ensure Compliance
We partner with you throughout the scope of your new contracts and service agreements to keep vendors in compliance, validate savings, and ensure you are receiving all negotiated services. We proactively look for new or additional savings opportunities to ensure best-in-market rates for the long term.

See What Our Clients Say
“…SIB found thousands of savings by reducing our banking fees…They were easy to work with and they respected our preference to retain services with our current vendors…We will recommend them to other quick serve restaurant franchisees in the future.”
“We learned about SIB through the Hardee’s Franchisee Association. We are very selective about whom we work with and we were determined not to make major changes just for the sake of saving money. SIB understood and pursued very measured, sensible recommendations that would serve our operational service needs entirely…their services are a great fit for the QSR (quick serve restaurant) industry.”
“SIB had staff and resources to audit spending at all of our 140 fast casual restaurant locations across the full spectrum of vendor services we pay for monthly. Their comprehensive review process yielded tremendous results..identifying more savings than we could have imagined. Furthermore, SIB’s bill monitoring services will ensure that we continue to realize these savings in the years to come.”
“We have 130 corporate locations. We were very interested in having an objective, third-party firm review our telecommunications contracts in an effort to identify savings opportunities for our company. I do not believe we would have achieved such significant savings without the independent expertise of SIB.”
