Cost Recovery & Expense Management

Operating personnel employed within a particular company are only able to reduce costs to a certain level as they typically do not have the in-depth industry knowledge that our cost consultants possess.

AES and its strategic partners use industry experts in each respective cost discipline to maximize the costs that can be recovered both retroactively and saved in the future.

Our industry experts have worked in their respective industries for many years. For example, our industry expert in the telecommunications area is an ex-long-term employee of the phone company. This person knows the in's and out's of tariffs, billing, line features, rate plans, equipment, access charges, routing, class of service tables, alternative providers, line charges etc. Our other industry experts have similar backgrounds in their respective fields.
