We’ve assembled the most commonly asked questions about Fine Tune, but if something else is on your mind or you need to talk to one of our consultants, simply fill out the contact form and we’ll get back to you right away.
The unique advantage that Fine Tune provides for its clients is best summarized in two words: expertise and dedication.
-Expertise: When you’re a Fine Tune client, your “nuisance” expenses are sourced, negotiated and managed by high-level industry insiders.
-Dedication: We deal in expense categories in which the implementation of a good deal is no more than half the battle. The execution — in the form of ongoing auditing, issue resolution and “boots on the ground” initiatives — is absolutely essential for optimal category management.
Fine Tune’s experts dedicate their time to the management of your “nuisance” expenses while you’re focused on your company’s mission-critical priorities.
No problem. Nearly all of our customers are under contract at the time of signing with Fine Tune. We are able to implement cost savings within the confines of your existing supplier agreements and magnify the savings upon implementation of new and better agreements.
About 85% of our clients retain their current supplier. Fine Tune has no supplier affiliations and receives no compensation from any suppliers within the targeted categories. We make recommendations, but you ultimately make the final decision.
Fine Tune is compensated purely via shared, hard-dollar savings–after the savings have been realized on your invoices. There are no up-front costs, no creative definitions of savings, no fees for “cost-avoidance,” and no additional fees. Period.
Any and all. We are unaffiliated with any particular supplier within our areas of expertise, and have established relationships with all of the major national service providers as well as a host of regional and local providers.
Whether you have one supplier contract or ten, your entire company will have one dedicated account manager at Fine Tune who serves as a single point of contact and advocates for your company in all matters pertaining to your account.
We use our proprietary software to audit invoices on a monthly basis to ensure that every last charge incurred is in adherence with the implemented supplier agreements.
Most brokers, GPOs and other consulting firms negotiate a new contract and then disappear or provide minimal ongoing expense management. In our areas of expertise, that’s not enough. From baseline assessment and implementation of measurement tools through ongoing auditing and contract enforcement, Fine Tune is a dedicated expense management firm which supports your business through the full duration of any implemented agreements. As a Fine Tune client, you’ll have a team of industry insiders on your side at every turn during the life cycle of our engagement.
Fine Tune’s roots are in managing expenses in Waste Management and Uniform Rental Services, but our expertise and process can be applied to many other indirect contract expense categories, including MRO supplies, pest control, staffing, and more.
