Production House cost analysis & benchmarking
Do you have a firm understanding of your production house costs? Overall? By Brand? By Agency?
Given that production house costs can represent up to 70% of a project’s budget and that it is the least understood budget area due to its size and complexity, we highly recommend starting here if your goal is to improve transparency and cost efficiency.
A Haynes-Vozza led Production House Cost Analysis includes a review of historical costs, the development of key metrics that can be used for future benchmarking and a detailed deep dive into previously awarded bids that helps to pinpoint exactly where inefficiency and inconsistency is taking place.
It will not only educate and empower your team, it will be a catalyst for future process improvement.
production process optimization
Working with multiple creative partners has its benefits but at the same time it may introduce multiple production processes. This alone can drive significant time and cost inefficiency.
We help to eliminate inefficiency by working with you to standardize bidding processes across all internal and external creative partners, and where necessary introduce bidding tools, such as standardized bid specs and production house guidelines, that can help to build additional consistency and structure.
The result is a much more efficient process that provides greater consistency, much improved transparency and the opportunity for considerable time and cost savings.
Clients will also have the option to integrate their optimized bid process into an industry-leading SaaS marketing procurement platform by taking advantage of our strategic partnership with Octerra.
Octerra automates the bidding process and centralizes workflows across all agency and vendor partners giving Clients real time visibility into bid information and easier access to data for reporting purposes.
enhanced production house bid methods
Ever wonder why the production budget you provided weeks before creative development even began, miraculously matches your final spend?
By taking more control of certain aspects within the production house bidding process, organizations can dramatically improve transparency and drive significant cost efficiency without impacting the integrity of their creative.
We leverage formal procurement principles, in-depth knowledge of true production costs and our extensive end to end bid management experience to ensure your production house costs are based on an actual scope of work and not on a simple allocation of your original budget .
