SIB Development and Consulting, Inc. is a firm specializing in fixed, monthly cost reduction. By employing experts with extensive experience in each of the fields we specialize in, we are uniquely equipped to find savings in virtually any fixed cost category.
Unlike typical consulting firms, we only bill based upon the savings that we find and you are not invoiced until savings are realized. If we don't find savings, no invoice is issued and you'll know that your bills are as low as possible.
SIB works with regional and national restaurant groups, hospital groups, local, state and federal governments, Fortune 20 companies, and everything in between. Being a privately held, debt-free company with strong financial backing allows us to tackle projects of any magnitude.
Since we opened our doors, we've found savings for over 98% of our clients, coast to coast. Our base of operations is in sunny Charleston, South Carolina but our reach is global.
SIB makes the process of cost reduction effortless for your company, allowing you to rest easy knowing that industry insiders from each of your monthly cost categories are working hard to reduce your costs.
Our experts have previously worked within the vendor categories that you pay every month. They know the billing process, industry jargon, margins, and unpublished discount rates. We go to work for your company, looking for previous billing errors, checking for evidence of being over-serviced, and exploring different rate structures. SIB's goal is to find each and every available opportunity for savings.
We typically accomplish this without changing your current vendors but will always check to see if better pricing terms are available from alternative vendors.
