What is BLJ Australia’s Maintenance Service?
Taken up by clients at the end of BLJ’s Savings Process service, the Maintenance Service is our offering to continue close monitoring of your non-core expense areas and ensure continued compliance. Our professionals collate records of usage and billing, provide usage trends and key usage data to assist in audits, governance and budgeting. We conduct weekly, monthly, quarterly and annual customised checks and provide a high level of quality reporting, dependent on your needs and requirements.
Working in collaboration with your existing departments, we are in communication with your team as frequently as needed, and are the point of call for information or advice on existing accounts. Often clients receive enquiries from suppliers regarding new offers or services. As a part of the Maintenance Service, BLJ field those calls and investigate the potential for your business and any savings opportunities.
When a capital investment is required, BLJ can evaluate all variables and provide valuable and accurate forecast savings to measure true return on investment.
With a comprehensive understanding of your contracts, the suppliers and your usage habits, we minimise the risks of cost blow out through proactive management of non-core expense areas while looking out for savings opportunities.
