What if a business owner had the ability to increase their profits by maximizing their purchasing power and reducing their operating expenses, without having to pay a consultant fee up front?

Ahwatukee Foothills resident Jerry Ervin, president of Sire Services LLC, wants to help businesses do just that.

Ervin has worked for more than 10 years in organizational development, working as a project manager and doing corporate training for companies such as Proctor and Gamble, Motorola and the Arizona Republic. He recently moved back to the Valley after starting his own business in New Jersey.

"New Jersey was hit hard, but nothing compared to Arizona," Ervin said. "When I moved out here in September I was just floored at how many businesses and homeowners are struggling."

Using his Cost Savings Program, Ervin looks at what the business spends on office equipment and supplies, phone and Internet services, advertising, printing, shipping and distribution, payroll services, credit card processing and production materials. He then evaluates what the business is currently paying against some of the best market rates, and reports back on the money that can be saved.

Ervin said on average he has been able to help his clients save 15 to 25 percent on current costs. He then gets compensated out of the savings that business owners realize. He receives a part of the savings for whatever amount of time is agreed upon (usually two or three months), and after that, the businesses get 100 percent of the savings.

"If I don't save you a dime you don't pay me anything," Ervin said about his pay-for-performance business model.

The program also helps business owners to maximize relationships with industry experts, customers and employees, Ervin said, adding that the program is designed for businesses, nonprofit organizations, schools, churches and state agencies.

"This program crosses all types of boundaries," Ervin said. "My goal is not just to work with business owners but to help work with churches and non-profits because they're all struggling in this type of economy."
