Excess spend analysis

The first essential step in cost containment is to analyse the spend of your organization; staff, software, vendors, and other areas of expenditure. You're looking for redundancies and inefficiencies.

Cost containment actions

The second step, once you're recognized areas of improvement, is to begin containing these costs. Remove unnecessary software, halt ineffective 3rd party initiatives, and look for alternative vendors.

Profit margin improvement

The third step in cost containment is simple. Review the results and figure out where the bulk of your improvement originated from, then do regular analysis with the goal of repeating the process.
