Reduce Small Business Operating Expenses

Maximize profit. Reduce expenses to increase cash flowThe impact of cost reduction is rapid and significant.  Every dollar of cost savings goes directly to the bottom line of your business. If your company operates on a 25% cash flow margin, every one dollar saved through expense reduction is worth four dollars of extra sales.  In other words, if ten thousand dollars in cost savings were identified during a cost reduction analysis, your company would need to grow revenue by forty thousand dollars to achieve the equivalent increase in cash flow.

For many small businesses, such an increase in cash flow (through incremental sales) is not feasible to achieve as quickly or easily as it is through a cost reduction analysis.
