“Fake Savings” 
harms your P&L

Within our areas of expertise, your procurement departments regularly report "savings" which never materializes. At Fine Tune, we drive actual bottom-line results and administrative efficiencies within a handful of "nuisance expenses."

Is this the status quo within your portfolio companies?

  • Overspending by 20% - 50%
  • Outsized management time with undersized returns
  • Reported "savings" fails to materialize
  • "Unknown unknowns" drive costs higher and higher
  • Turnover, role changes and lean resources increase the costs of complex, low-flying expenses
  • Lack of effective and lasting solutions

Here's why we're approaching you:

  • We know you care more about the money actually flying out the door than projected “savings” in your procurement departments
  • Buyers, middle managers and other “expense owners” may perceive us as a threat to expose the shortcomings in their category-management efforts
  • Portfolio-wide initiatives with Fine Tune deliver hard-dollar savings and resource efficiencies, with the impacts multiplied in future liquidity events
