How we find your savings

Uniforms

Employer-mandated uniforms worn for the employer’s benefit–whether it’s for branding or OSHA requirements–must be provided to employees free of charge. If this applies to your business, look to CCM for guidance on how to manage and monitor this ongoing operational expense. CCM vendor knowledge, contract negotiation expertise and ongoing monitoring will ensure you save money while meeting your marketing, safety and other uniform goals and requirements.

Electronic payment and commerce

The convenience of paying with credit and debit cards combined with the growth of e-commerce have been a double whammy to many businesses. While they reduce some transactional costs and increase sales opportunities, the processing charges and fees are a continuous drain on profit margins. Meanwhile a growing array of options have made merchant services and electronic payment solutions more complicated and time-consuming to assess. If this is a concern for your business, turn to CCM for guidance and time-saving help. We’ll ensure you are not paying more than necessary for secure, reliable electronic commerce and payment systems.

Treasury management

Reliable, cost-effective management of your financial holdings is vitally important to successful companies. You rely on your bank or other treasury management provider to help you manage business liquidity, optimize financial resources and mitigate risk. And with assistance from CCM, you can rely on our insights, benchmarking data and experience to make sure your treasury services are the best fit for your needs and as cost-efficient as possible.
