Thanks to our benchmarking tool, which has been developed internally, we are able to have a quick and precise overview on the non-core business costs (Energy, IT, HR, Logistics, Facility and Insurances). Having this information is what distinguishes us from the competition and which allows us to give our customers the best advise in order to optimize their costs.

As a company it is often difficult to measure up to suppliers. Bridgewater combines contracts from several companies, which allows them to negotiate better conditions with suppliers. Reviewing twelve different non-strategic cost areas has led to savings ranging from 10 to 60 percent, with a total of 200.000 euros per year.
It’s a real challenge for companies who aren’t big nor small to have a precise view on the costs in each department. This is why we called on Bridgewater. The main reason was to work in the most efficient way. If I look back from 2012 up to today, I can say we save more than 100.000 EUR a year thanks to Bridgwater’s intervention.
The market is becoming more competitive. After two rounds of negotiations we finally decided to stay with Worldline, and we have saved 25% on processing and more than 40% on the purchase of terminals, compared to prices we had negotiated in 2013.
